Angela Wallace Pierson, CTC-Angela was literally born into the travel industry with a pilot for a grandfather and both parents worked for Pan Am Airways prior to opening The Travel Agency in 1974. Angela has always had a passion for adventure and expedition travel. After spending May 2019 through March 2020 with her family working and schooling remotely from all seven continents, Angela also has a passion for collaborating with others on extended journeys, whether one month, six months or even indefinitely.
After earning her Bachelors in Marketing from Florida State University, Angela worked at Wallace Pierson Travel, formerly The Travel Agency in sales and marketing. In August of 2003, The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island hired Angela as their Travel Industry Sales Manager.
Angela missed the collaboration of working with clients to plan their dream travels so she returned to the agency in April 2005. Following her passions, Angela is now recognized by Virtuoso as a Top Producer for Virtuoso Adventure Travel, Family Travel and Virtuoso Voyages.
