About Leah

Part of what makes Tenon so great is our one-on-one mentality and desire to get to know our clients. We thought it was about time to return the favor and let you get to know us! Leah, once Senior Travel Coordinator, has been with us since 2018. Below she answered some questions about herself and her journey in the travel business!

If you could spend a week anywhere in the world, where would it be?
“Definitely Australia! Even though I’ve seen much of east coast, there’s so much more to see and experience than you ever could in one trip. I love the scenery, the history, the people, and the accents! My goal is to visit every territory/state in Australia in my lifetime at least once.”

What has been one fun fact about our destinations that you have learned while working for Tenon?
“It was very exciting to learn that some of the castles in the British Isles have accommodations as well. That is definitely something that I’m taking advantage of on my first European vacation!”

Where have you traveled to so far?
“I’ve been to multiple states throughout the US, as well as the Bahamas, Aruba, and Australia.”

How does your experience relate to your job at Tenon Tours?
“Having a science background has taught me how important being detailed really is, and how a change in one small aspect of a situation or process can make all of the difference. What I like about Tenon Tours is that we help to alleviate the stress by taking care of those finer details for the client and, as a Sales Coordinator, I get to put that experience to work as the first ‘face’ of Tenon Tours that the client meets.”

What do you like to do in your spare time?
“I am an avid reader; my philosophy is that books can provide another outlet through which to travel. I also like to write, take nature photography, and play with my pit bull, Diamond. ”

What is your favorite part of traveling?
“I’m a complete nerd for architecture: new, updated, or long since passed its expiration date. You’ll most likely find me at unique, gothic churches or centuries-old ruins. I also really enjoy visiting historic landmarks and learning about the history of the location. ”
