Your Team of Premiere Travelers Planners
Deb Clark founded Premiere Travel Planners when she decided she wanted to do travel planning her way. After working in the travel business, she realized that as an independent business owner she could work in the best interest of her clients and not the franchise she was affiliated with. Deb is able to combine her passion for travel with years of business ownership experience including personal training and senior home care. She brings great discipline, ability to work with different types of clients, and knowledge of the importance of good processes.
When not researching (traveling), Deb enjoys cycling, hiking, kayaking, cooking, reading, remodeling homes with her husband and loving on her rescue dogs. Her favorite parts of travel are exploring new places, local cooking classes, and meeting new people. Deb especially loves travel to Antarctica, Iceland and Europe.
Debi Kelley joined Premiere Travel Planners after years of planning personal trips for family and friends. She has been providing high levels of customer service to clients for over twenty years as a Doctor of Physical Therapy, and has owned her own practice for twelve years. She now applies her listening and attention skills to planning unique and personal travel experiences.
When not working, Debi can be found riding her motorcycle, walking her dogs, gardening, hiking, and hanging out with her husband and two sons. She also volunteers at church, school, and as a Board Member on her local Chamber of Commerce. Having a spouse with Multiple Sclerosis and a son with Type I Diabetes, Debi understands that travel can come with unique challenges, and works hard to ensure that potential problems are considered before travel to make for as smooth a trip as possible. Debi loves traveling anywhere, but has special interest in tropical destinations with strong cultural roots.
Teri Marsman serves as Administrative Assistant to the team. Teri lives in Portland, Oregon and loves heading out to the beach with her husband and rescue dogs. Monday through Friday she works as an elementary school librarian. Evenings and weekends she enjoys helping to put dream vacations together. She’s looking forward to returning to Japan as her next big trip.
At Premiere Travel Planners, we believe travel elevates our lives – it connects us to our fellow travelers, to the locals we meet along the way, and to lands near and far that we explore during travel. Nothing else can make the world more amazing than seeing it first hand, nor help us recognize our place in the world like travel can. Therefore we believe travel should be done well and right. Travel done well is luxury your way: whether that is a private car and driver for your tours, or matching you with a group of like-minded solo travelers, or a private villa where you don’t see anyone else for a week. Travel done right is sustainable, respects the local people and land, matches your preferences and lifestyle, and makes the most of your precious time.
