Meet our team of travel designers!
Shelly Ramirez - Owner/Travel Designer
I've been in travel since 2011! I've always had a love of travel, which is why I decided to get into this crazy industry! Contact me for all-inclusive vacations, cruises, as well as Europe!
Europe is a passion of mine, and I spend most of my days designing custom trips traveling all over Europe! I hand pick the tours and accommodations as well as the best way to travel between cities (Talk about Trains, Planes, and Automobiles! )
A passion of mine is helping create memories and connect my clients with their ancestry, I do a lot of Greece, Ireland, France, Italy, Germany, and other areas of Europe!
I LOVE to Cruise and have been on a lot of various cruises in Alaska, the Caribbean, and Europe, including River Cruises, which is a passion of mine! I have earned my Master Cruise Counselor designation, which took over a year of study as well as ongoing training, so if you're looking to cruise, I'm your designer!
Michelle Carbone - Founder/Destination Wedding Groups
I've been in the business since 1997!
When I got married back in 1998, we decided to get married on the beach in the Bahamas. After my experience, I decided I loved planning honeymoons and weddings away and wanted to help other couples with their dream getaway!
I founded Michelle's Destinations in October of 2001. As of Jan 1, 2021 - Shelly Ramirez has taken over ownership so I may work on other paths that are calling me and is doing great things with the agency!
As I'm pursuing other interests to transition out of travel totally, I am now only handling contracted wedding groups.
Adriana Horton - Travel Designer
I started in the travel industry in 1999, took some time off to work insurance claims. Can you figure out which industry I prefer? I have lived all over the world (Hong Kong, Japan, Ireland, Brazil, Belize, and the US) and have travelled all over. I love to be able to help people turn ideas into amazing travel experiences. One of my favorite quotes is “ Travelling- it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a story teller.” -Ibn Battuta.
Go tell some stories!
Mark Cain - Travel Designer
I am pleased to join the team at Michelle's Destinations. As a husband and father of 3 beautiful girls, I understand the ins and outs of traveling with a big group. I regularly participate in multi-generational travel and appreciate balancing the wishes for togetherness and some privacy while on vacation. I grew up in the Norman area, am a dedicated Sooner fan, love to cook, spend time with great friends, and of course travel.
