VTA, ECC, Lead Travel Advisor 

Years ago, Melissa and her husband sold their home and belongings (yes, all of it!), purchased a huge 40-foot-long diesel pusher motorhome, and took an epic tour of the United States. They loved the incredible sightseeing opportunities provided while living the RV lifestyle. What’s more, they were excited about luxury cruising and the continent-hopping their nomadic lifestyle allowed them to enjoy. Often they would drive to the nearest cruise port, park the motorhome, and sail off on a ship to far-off places. For two years, she and her husband crisscrossed the country— and the world! For now, they have settled down, and while they still plan unique vacation getaways for themselves, Melissa now focuses on helping others live out their travel dreams too!

Melissa has a lifelong obsession with travel. Her myriad of captivating adventures in exotic countries across the globe not only brought her so much joy, but also led her to open RLX Travel Group. Since opening her agency, she worked diligently to earn the American Society of Travel Advisor’s Verified Travel Advisor (VTA) certification and the coveted Elite Cruise Counselor certificate (ECC) from Cruise Lines International Association.

Melissa’s Journeys Around the World 


Get inspired by some of Melissa’s favorite adventures!

On her birthday, she spent the day in Iceland's northernmost point (Grimsey) on the Arctic Circle surrounded by puffins. The Arctic Circle and puffins on the same day - what a birthday!


During an Alaskan cruise, she and her group took a 4x4 ride up to the top of a glacier, where they indulged in a breathtaking—albeit chilly!—picnic on the ice.

Sailing over majestic Atlantic waters on a 26-day voyage, she and her husband marveled at volcanic green mountains of the Azores, which are lush Portuguese islands nearly 1,000 miles from the European coast.

Winding through Eastern Europe on a river cruise, they had the chance to check enchanting destinations like Austria, Hungary, Bulgaria, Serbia, Croatia, and Romania off their bucket list.

Motoring down on a scenic road through the Carpathian Mountains, their tour group stopped in a tiny village where the villagers invited them into a beautiful church and put on a show. It was a wonderful play which the village residents had written themselves about the town's history!
