Angela Gerou, a native Tennessean, joined Voyage by Pascale in 2013 as the company’s very first Luxury Travel Consultant. With an extensive hospitality background including Reservations Management, Front Office, Concierge, Room Inventory and Groups, she was excited to have a challenging opportunity to be on the “other side” of the industry. After having worked for the (Los Angeles-based) Viceroy Hotel Group in various capacities for 10 years, it was Angela’s close relationship with Pascale that led her to such a big change, as the two were in touch almost daily while she was the Reservations Manager for Viceroy Anguilla. As both women are Scorpios, their intuitive and ambitious nature led them to make a big decision without much hesitation. Pascale was very impressed with her from the beginning and knew that with her great sense of service and ethics, she would be a tremendous asset to the company.
Angela’s passion for traveling was inspired by a character named “Uncle Traveling Matt” who was in a television show created by Jim Henson. When she was in kindergarten, her teacher asked what she wanted to be when she grew up, to which she answered, “I want to travel all over the world.” Her teacher laughed and said she couldn’t make a living by doing that, but it turns out Angela proved her wrong, and is incredibly grateful for the many destinations she’s been able to visit throughout the last 15 years of her career. Despite that, she’s a true California girl at heart, as her favorite place will always be Big Sur, CA. She has since returned to Tennessee so that she can be closer to her family again, and now works remotely for VBP from there. She lives with her husband, and their 13 year old Yorkie, Jazz. Angela also serves as our exclusive holistic healer with her expertise in essential oils.
