Hello, my name is Cathy Hawk and I love to travel. My parents were both immigrants. My father moved to the US from Italy when he was 7 and my mother, who is English met him when she was 19 while living in Casablanca, Morocco. They married and moved to Ohio where my Dad was working for General Tire. He traveled for his job so I spent many hours at the airport either dropping him off or picking him up but also we traveled to visit family all over the world. My Grandparents lived in Greece and England, so my family vacations were unconventional but amazing experiences which I have carried with me and have passed onto my own family.
I have been married to Dan for 23 years and we have 2 beautiful daughters, Emily at Kent State and Rachel at the University of Mount Union. I have always wanted my kids to be comfortable traveling out of the country. It is a running joke in our family to compare how many countries we have visited and as of now I am still in the lead. My kids are quickly starting to catch up and it will make me so happy when they pass me up. I feel the education you get from experiencing different cultures, foods, and people gives you interesting stories and a compassion and understanding for different ways of life. Anyone who has traveled no matter where has had that moment when you are at a place you have never been and you just stand in awe of what you are seeing. Travel has that ability to leave you speechless but also to turn you into a storyteller.
For the last 10 years I have been in Customer Service and for 3 of those years I have also been a certified Acceptance Agent for the US Department of State. So, I am trained and can help answer questions regarding passports and international travel. I am new to the Travel Industry on the “sales” side but combining my customer service skills and my traveling experiences I feel I would be a great asset to planning and organizing personal vacations for clients. . I love planning US destination vacations like Sedona, Las Vegas and relaxing beach vacations. But over the years I have traveled to roughly 14 countries including some of my favorites: Italy, England, Costa Rica, Croatia, Malta, Scotland and Bermuda just to name a few. I love finding off the beaten path cities, towns or even restaurants and fully submerging myself into the culture. One such place that holds my heart is a small town 30 minutes north of Rome called Tivoli. I recommend this place to anyone I hear is going to Rome, it is the true essence of Italy and Italian life
I have traveled using many popular cruise lines such as Carnival Cruise Lines, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, and Norwegian Cruise Line. I am also a big fan of tour companies such as Tauck and Trafalgar which offer amazing itineraries for international travel. I love exploring different excursions and have used many resources to find the perfect experiences for my family.
I am so excited to be working with Must Love Travel and to share my love and passion for travel with people who are ready to explore amazing destinations. I hope that with my guidance you are able to sit back and let the world open up to whatever dreams you have. It is time to start exploring and checking off those bucket list items. I look forward to planning your next adventure.
