Sheri Atkinson

Sheri Atkinson

Trusted Senior Travel Advisor

Sheri was born in Halifax and moved to PEI when she was about 6 months old and has lived here ever since, so yes – she’s an “Islander”!!
In 1994 earned her degree in Travel/Tourism from Holland College and has been working in the industry ever since, holding a term position with an agency in Charlottetown where she enjoyed a very rewarding career, which she now plans on expanding & growing with Stewart Travel Group “STG.”
Over the years Sheri has travelled to various destinations like Australia, USA including Hawaii & Las Vegas, the Caribbean including Cuba, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Jamaica, and others as well other Islands while on Caribbean cruise. Some European travels include motor-coach touring in amazing countries like, Italy, Greece & Ireland as well as Greek Island cruising.
Her bucket list of places still to go to is so long, but rest assured she will be working towards fulfilling that list as soon as possible! A very memorable trip Sheri enjoyed was her own destination wedding in Jamaica in 2010 with many friends/family in tow. This personal experience has provided her first hand insight into the process of booking/planning/experiencing a destination wedding, so she would definitely consider this to be a valuable asset when planning destination weddings for her clients.
Sheri very much enjoys traveling, spending time with family & friends and most importantly her husband, where together they co-promote sports entertainment events in the Maritimes. Over the years Sheri, her husband and close friends have been involved in fundraising for many organizations/charities such as Children’s Wish, Multiple Sclerosis, Canadian Cancer Society, Hospice PEI, Laps for Loonies (QEH & IWK), Souris High breakfast program and more. It’s very important to her and the others to work as part of a collective to try to do something good within the community.

She is very much looking forward to forging ahead with Stewart Travel Group and is excited for this next chapter in her career.

Krista Trecartin

Trusted Senior Travel Advisor

Krista was born in Saint John and moved to Fredericton in 2000 to attend St. Thomas University, where she graduated in 2004 with her bachelor of arts and majored in Criminology and Psychology. After taking part in an escorted trip to Cayo Coco in 2004 she developed the “travel bug” and decided she no longer wished to pursue a career as a social worker but would like to work in the travel industry instead.

She went to Oulton college to get her diploma in travel and hospitality with the hopes of becoming a travel agent. In 2008 she received an opportunity with a local travel agency in Fredericton and considers herself very lucky to have such a challenging and exciting career which she ultimately became Manager.
She enjoys traveling very much and has been able to visit many different cities throughout Canada, the United States, the Caribbean and Mexico. She also spent some time in Europe and had the pleasure of escorting a group to Greece.
Krista considers herself an expert on destination weddings since she herself was married in the Dominican Republic and understands the issues couples face when planning such an event.
With her knowledge, she has been able to help plan several destination weddings and would love to continue working with these groups in the future.
"We are so blessed to have Krista join Stewart Travel Group. Her professionalism and genuine caring nature fits perfectly with our company and our vision."

Terri Clarke

Terri Clarke

Trusted Senior Travel Advisor

Terri is from Quispamsis, a suburb of Saint John, NB. She has a true passion for travel; new places, new faces, experiencing a new culture, learning new things; a career in travel was her destiny.

She graduated from NBCC in beautiful St.Andrews-By-The-Sea, NB with a diploma in Hospitality and Tourism but it wasn’t until she started working for Air Canada that she really got the travel bug. She took advantage of the travel perks while working for Air Canada and spent a lot of time in the Caribbean. Mostly Jamaica, Mexico and Barbados.
In 2009, Terri was presented with the opportunity to manage a local travel agency and hasn’t looked back since. She travelled all over the Caribbean while with this agency but her favourite trips were to Egypt where she saw every tomb and temple there is to see, including the Valley of the Kings, and California, where she drove from San Diego to San Francisco….that was her favourite trip of all. Her best travel memory came from that trip to California because it ended with a drive through The Avenue of the Giants, which is one of her favourite places to be, among all those giant red wood trees.
Terri is truly lucky to have been one of only a handful of travel consultants across Canada that has been trained directly by Disney at Walt Disney World, so she is an avid Disney fan and an expert in planning Disney trips. She is also an expert in all group travel, including weddings, Caribbean travel, Egypt, California, Las Vegas and some parts of Europe.

Kevin & Michelle Hayward

Kevin & Michelle Hayward

Trusted Senior Travel Advisors

Michelle started her career in the travel industry in 2007 as a full-time home based travel agent. During that time she assisted clients with the full range of world-wide travel experiences. Of particular interest, Michelle escorted a group to France and both her and Kevin escorted groups to Italy, Ireland, and France/Spain. For their 25th wedding anniversary, Kevin and Michelle experienced their first river cruise traveling through Austria and Germany enroute to Amsterdam. Kevin, a full-time financial advisor, was intrigued with the travel industry and worked with Michelle primarily with escorted group travel.

Life has it’s own way of creating challenges and Michelle had her own challenge in 2010. While on a travel agent Sandals experience to Turks and Caico’s and Bahamas, Michelle was hospitalized in Bahamas and ultimately diagnosed with a brain aneurysm. An airlift to Miami for surgery and then two additional surgeries in Halifax over the past three years resulted in Michelle unable to continue to work full time in the business.
By this time, Kevin was definitely hooked and was looking for a way to continue in the travel industry in a limited but very focused way. Kevin and Michelle met with Travis and Paula of Stewart Travel Group and felt that they had a shared interest in escorted group travel and STG were willing to allow them the flexibility to specialize moving forward. “ Our goal is to offer at least one escorted group travel experience to Europe annually and to focus our sales efforts on escorted motor-coach tours and river cruise holidays exclusively.”
Active in their community, Kevin currently volunteers his time with the local Knights of Columbus and as a Big Brother. He recently retired as Chairperson of the St Joseph’s Finance Committee. Michelle also volunteers with St. Josephs with bi-weekly visits to the sick. Kevin and Michelle believe strongly in giving back and currently sponsor 6 international children through Chalice. They are both former badminton coaches but today you are more likely to see Kevin and Michelle at the curling rink or on a golf course.

Frances Gertsch

Frances Gertsch

Trusted Travel Advisor

Growing up in Alberta, Frances always loved travelling and exploring the great outdoors. Her passion turned into a career after she followed her mother’s wise advice: “Do what you love!”

She took her first solo trip by bus from Edmonton to Calgary at seven years old to visit family friends and she’s never looked back. Since she’s travelled in the arctic by bush plane, snorkeled on the Great Barrier Reef, taken a train to mountain villages in Switzerland, relaxed on the beaches of the Caribbean, slept in an underground hotel in the opal-mining town of Coober Pedy, remembered Canada’s fallen in the battlefields of Europe, wandered the hip streets of Nuuk, Greenland, and was guided through the Tower of London by a Yeoman Warder.

The list of places on Frances’ travel bucket list – from eco-tourism destinations to urban hotspots – is too numerous to mention here, but will always include great food, unique experiences, and the chance to create unforgettable memories with family and friends.

As a travel agent, Frances wants to help you knock off destinations on your travel bucket list, take that family journey you’ve never thought possible, find that perfect spot to just get away from it all, or create that unforgettable memory that will last a lifetime.

She brings with her an Honours Bachelor of Outdoor Recreation, Parks, and Tourism, nearly 20 years of experience in the travel product development industry, and an unmatched enthusiasm for helping you meet your travel goals. Like with the entire team at Stewart Travel Group, with Frances you’ll get the very best in customer service and an unparalleled attention to detail: let her take care of making your travel arrangements so that you can take care of what that trip should be all about.
