My Story

I am an independent travel agent in Doniphan County Kansas; Bendena, KS to be exact. My office is located 10 miles north of Atchison, KS on Hwy. 7. But there is no need to come to my office; I can help you remotely. This is how most of my clients choose to utilize me. We talk through phone, text, facebook messenger, email and even regular mail if something needs a signature. But my office is always open so feel free to stop by. I have a lovely array of brochures available on display and I’m always available.

I have booked several vacations since starting Meaningful Memories Travel Services but I learn new and wonderful things from this “job” every single day! I love to learn about our world. I think everyone deserves and NEEDS a vacation!

If you’re needing a vacation package, all inclusive package, cruise, Disney vacation, Vegas, quick getaway, tours, hotels, rental cars, or even just a quick getaway someplace close by, please contact me at . I absolutely love what I’m doing. Let me help you get to your dream destination!!

                                                Our Story

My husband Jimmie and I have been married over 20 years. We have 4 boys, Nicholas, Matthew, Jackson & Champ. Nicholas and Matthew are in college and we have two in elementary school. We are just 2 hard working people who make the best out of our circumstances and always striving to get better. Jimmie is a maintenance man at MGP Ingredients and I do overnight home health for a young man with a brain injury. I am able to run my travel business during the day because I work over nights.

But the main reason I became a travel agent was because of our youngest son, Champ. When Champ was born, we learned that he was visually impaired and moderately deaf. We found out when he was two years old he is gradually losing his vision as a result of an inoperabel eye condition. That’s when my husband and I jumped into action to start filling his brain full of meaningful memories and experiences; hence the name, Meaningful Memories Travel Services.

We make traveling a priority in our lives. We try to go on at least one cruise per year and one road trip. But now we travel with just Jackson and Champ since our older two are grown. We have made so many great memories as a family. I want you to make memories with your loved ones as well.
