OUR STORY

Team Julie's 50th Anniversary Celebration - 2015

Team Julie's 50th Anniversary Celebration - 2015

JTD Team 1976

Situated in the heart of Lake Oswego, the ‘Travel Desk’ was founded by Julie Shipley in 1965. Back then, a desk was pretty much all that was needed. Julie’s attention to detail, creativity and a desire to help others made selling travel a natural choice for her. The original ‘Team Julie’s’ consisted of three members, who all worked hard making travel arrangements for their clients to any place in the world or around it. Over the past fifty years the travel industry and the way people travel has changed considerably. By keeping up with this ever-changing industry, Julie’s Travel Desk has not only survived but has thrived. Originally, almost every journey started with a visit to a local travel agency. These days there are other options available, but by offering expert advice, while providing the highest quality of customer service, we continue to add value to every travel experience that we help to create.
In 1972, Sandi Hanna, Julie's daughter joined the team and learned the travel business from the best, while working alongside her mother as her mentor. Sandi took over management and continues to lead by the same example her mother set. Today, we have ten travel specialists who each come with their own set of unique skills and experiences. Along with our talented staff, we rely on the highest quality of travel partners, suppliers, tools and resources and continue to be the best that we can be.
