Sandi is the founder, creator, and genius behind the business! Former Flight Attendant for American Airlines where her main job was to get people out of a plane upside down under water (if that should become necessary!) ....and basically, after 27 years with Tour-Rific, it still is her primary role! She is the TTT...Tour-Rific of Texas Troubleshooter! She is also the "mom" of Paisley Pauline, Tour-Rific's new Director of Homeland Security.
Debbie is a former "foster mom" for Safe House Rescue. After rescuing about a million dogs (well, it seemed like a million), she quit to be the best accountant EVER! If you don't hear from Debbie, you have given us your passenger count, # of rooms and you paid on time! She is also a huge Astros fan, Trivia Queen (seriously, ask her anything!) and loves "The King", a.k.a. Elvis! She even has a miniature Graceland Statue on her desk!
Caye, formerly with Klein ISD, is our meal and attraction "guru" and books hotels in New York and Orlando. She will work tirelessly to find the right combination of activities for your group at the right price and she will "hunt you down" for meal counts before your trip! She is proud to be from Rankin, a tiny town in west Texas and she loves to visit with our customers, plan events for her church, and search for new restaurants and fun things for our groups to do.
Suzi came to Tour-Rific from the Spring Volunteer Fire Department where the main objective was protecting lives and property. Now, instead of driving a truck she is checking DOT safety records, booking buses and still "putting out fires" on occasion....when buses are sold out and we need one, it becomes a fully involved 3-alarm "search and rescue"! She is "mom" to Mia Kate and Bella Rose, our Co-directors of Transportation.
Paisley Pauline, Director of Homeland Security, is a Chihuahua, Poodle, & Yorkie mix who has abandonment issues after being left alone in her apartment after her original owners moved out! Sandi was approved to adopt her over almost 50 other applicants! Of course, Paisley had to be interviewed for her position at Tour-Rific but she is very strong, focused (on Sandi), honest and, as you can see, adorable!
Mia Kate, Co-director of Transportation, is the offspring of "Lucky Lucy of Pasadena"! She is tiny but mighty and very loyal. She focuses on every task we ask her to do and works very hard, especially if there is a cookie at the end.
Bella Rose, Co-director of Transportation, is from questionable heritage (perhaps a Westie in her "sketchy pedigree") but is very grateful to have been saved from being a "puppy making machine" a.k.a. brood bitch. She is sweet to a fault but determined to do her job and be a support to Mia Kate.
Peggy Sue, Chief of Stress Control, is an old girl with a heart of gold. She has retired to live at Debbie's house in quiet comfort and since she only has 3 feet (details not clear), she does not move very fast. Her demeanor epitomizes relaxation so her part time job here is a perfect fit for her because with 3 paws, stress is not an option!
