Mary Anne Hegedus ECC, DS

Mary Anne Hegedus of TerraMar Travel, Inc. says, I have always loved to travel.  After graduating with a B.S. in Nursing from U of Wisconsin I immediately left for the Panama Canal Zone where I worked for 4 years.  

While living there, I traveled to countries in both South & Central America. Family ties to Eastern Europe have allowed me to visit and experience many of the Eastern Bloc countries. I also toured in Western Europe, Asia and Africa.

Professionally, I have completed the Elite Cruise Counselor accreditation from The Cruise Line Industry Association (CLIA). I am a certified Destination Specialist in France, Hawaii, Panama, Tahiti and other countries. I continue my professional education so I can offer value & excellent service to my clients. With my travel knowledge and experience, I can save you hours of research, freeing you to plan what you will be doing on your trip.

Let’s plan your next vacation together.

Jani Doctor, ACC

(Designated Yachtalist by American Safari Cruises - Specialists in the Art of Travel)

Seeing the sights, absorbing the sounds and enjoying new flavors has always been of interest to me. After college my first adventures were as a Delta Airlines Flight Attendant. Traveling on my own took me to Asia, Africa, Europe and Central America.

After marrying and having children, I turned my talents to being a program coordinator as a profession, and often as a volunteer as well. Now as an "empty nester" my love of "Far Off Places" has guided me to work as a home based travel agent. It's great fun to help people plan a special trip. It also keeps me learning the latest in the travel world. I take many classes and have the Accredited Cruise Counselor from CLIA (Cruise Lines International Association).


Karyn McKnight MCC & Tom Egrie

Hi! My name is Karyn McKnight and this is my partner Tom Egrie. We live in Washington State and I have been in the travel industry for over 20 years. I am certified as an MCC (Master Cruise Counselor) with Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) and have been happily associated with TerraMar Travel, Inc. since 2000.

After a year of training Karyn began training other home based travel agents and has made many long lasting and great friends along the way. Many of the trainings were on cruises in all parts of the world with outstanding tours. Karyn loves to cruise and in 2000 met Tom who likes to cruise too – even after 30 years in the Navy. Luxury cruising is much better than Navy ships!

Karyn specializes in Great NorthWest travel sites, California and Hawaii locations, and Cruises to Anywhere but will put together any kind of travel --- just tell her what you want.

Karyn has 4 grown children and nine grandchildren. Tom has 4 grown children and four grandchildren. Whew – what a group!

Currently taking care of Karyn’s 91 year old mother keeps us closer to home but just find us a sitter and we are ready to go.

Happy traveling!

Linda Prewitt

Linda Prewitt

When Linda was 6 days old, she flew to Chicago, and she has been traveling ever since!

Linda has been selling travel since 2006, but has been participating in travel for her entire life. As a child, she traveled across the United States with her family; as a young adult she sought out other continents. Linda learned research skills while earning her BA and MA in history and education, and she utilizes those skills during every vacation she plans for her clients. Having taught school for 30 years has made her very detail oriented, and the trip she plans for you will reveal that skill.

An automobile accident left Linda’s daughter in a wheelchair at 16. Linda has been successfully designing trips for her since 2002, which have included Alaska; Venice, Italy; Greece; Mexico; and the Caribbean. All of those places were reported to be “challenging” to those in wheelchairs. Linda found a way to make those trips possible and suggests that if you are in a wheelchair, you should speak to her if you want to travel.

A firm believer in Mark Twain’s adage, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover,” Linda suggests that you think about the places you would like to go. Then call her. She will make sure that you have the vacation of a lifetime.

Donna Dowden

Donna Dowden began traveling as a child with her family throughout California and Hawaii. After she married, and again visited Hawaii, she realized that her desire to travel was always going to be with her. Having traveled extensively, she is now assisting others as a Travel Professional. Zip-lining through the jungle canopy on Kauai, snorkeling off a private motu in French Polynesia, watching the sunset from the top of the Eiffel Tower, and strolling down the ancient marble streets of Ephesus in Turkey—she has experienced many memorable moments. From French Polynesia to the Greek isles, as well as traveling throughout much of the United States, she has been fortunate to meet many interesting people and experience amazing cultures. Being a former History and Language Arts teacher, traveling to places that have such rich history has been a highlight of her many travels. Since she has retired from teaching, her goal is to open up the world to others so they might catch the "travel bug" like her. She can share her own experiences of the South Pacific and cruising, as well as her experiences in European travel. Bringing her knowledge of many National Parks in the west, she also brings her expertise to plan wonderful US vacations. Donna is looking forward to helping others fulfill their vacation dreams and is a member of the National Association of Career Travel Agents (NACTA).
