Sallie Watkins, CTC , MCC In 1997, I founded Watkins Travel & Tours in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. I have a broad background in travel with over a decade of experience in the leisure travel industry. I am a Certified Travel Counselor ( CTC ) issued by the Travel Institute and a Master Cruise Counselor ( MCC ) issued by the Cruise Line International Association (CLIA). My credentials also include Destination Specialists (DS) certifications issued by the Travel Institute for Alaska, Hawaii, North America, Cultural Europe, and the Caribbean. Beyond my travel credentials, I hold an undergraduate degree (B.A.) from the University of Central Florida and graduate degrees (M.S.W. and D.S.W.) from The University of Alabama. My earlier career was in social work where I worked primarily with individuals with psychiatric disabilities. In addition, I taught at both The University of Alabama and the University of Alabama at Birmingham. I am currently active in my community and work with child abuse prevention services. For the last twelve years I have been a member in the local Zonta International Club, where twice I have served as president. My knowledge of destinations continues to increase not only through training courses but my own personal travel primarily in the United States, Europe, and the Caribbean. I have the education, experience, and love of travel to provide a wealth of in-depth knowledge and guidance in planning your trip.
