In 2003, it was clear to Cheryl that it was time for a career change. But what to do next? It had to be something she would love to do and do at home. The answer was not hard to find. She loves to travel and has been to Jamaica, England, Egypt, Kenya, Tanzania, Barbados, Antigua, Italy, Germany, Holland, Spain, Haiti, Zambia, UAE, South Africa, and even lived in France. She enrolled into the Travel Marketing Program at Los Medanos College, and finished with certificates in Travel Marketing, Home-Based Travel Specialist and Cruise Specialist. While studying Cheryl was spiritually lead to focus on voluntourism or volunteer vacations as a travel niche. For her, this was a perfect match: travel - with a mission to do good. And as the travel industry was embracing this change, she decided to specialize in volunteer vacations not just for the globally- engaged individuals, but also for churches and groups with active outreach programs.
