Carol Powell

Carol and her husband Stan started the franchise in 1992. Theirs was one of the first franchises in what is now Dream Vacations. Wendy and Chris took over ownership of the franchise, but we are thrilled that Carol continues with the franchise as an associate.

Howard Merseth

Since elementary school, I have developed a keen interest in travel and geography. During my senior year of college, I was fortunate to be part of the first "Term in Thailand" group of students from my school to travel throughout Japan and South East Asia while studying and traveling in Thailand for a semester. The seed was planted and over the years I’ve made numerous trips to SE Asia, traveled in India, Turkey, Greece, Europe and Peru. Caribbean and Mediterranean cruises are a favorite.

My business career in sales involved building relationships with customers by listening to their needs and offering great customer service. Having tried retirement for a year, I’m excited to be working with The Cook Travel Group and helping clients plan their dream vacations.
