About Us

Jan Acorn

Owner of Gateway Destinations.

My name is Jan Acorn, owner of Gateway Destinations. Travel has certainly broadened my outlook on the world and sparked my imagination! Being a natural planner for friends and family travel over the years, I found that I loved creating and sharing travel experiences, so much so that it spawned my career in travel!  When designing a personal vacation that is tailored specifically for you and your fellow travelers, my utmost priority is creating an extraordinary and seamless experience and make every vacation truly memorable.  Although I specialize in planning custom itineraries to Europe for busy professionals, honeymooners and active retirees, I am well-versed in all international destinations as well as Alaska and Hawaii.


Staying abreast of destinations and the latest in travel is important to me which is why I achieved my Certified Travel Associate and Signature Travel Expert designations.  These credentials require that I have years of travel industry experience, completed rigorous certification and testing, and continue to fulfill stringent education credit requirements on an ongoing basis.  I also regularly attend travel trade shows and take advantage of other training offered by suppliers, industry organizations and tourism boards to better serve my clients. And, of course, I travel extensively to gain first-hand knowledge. Recognized as a leading travel advisor by Signature Travel, I was selected to participate in Trip Advisor’s travel advisor platform, HelloReco, a Travel Expert for Italy and France.  My affiliation with Signature as an independent travel advisor affords me access to numerous reputable and premium resources that provide a collective wealth of competitive travel options for all areas of the globe.

I look forward to creating your unforgettable dream vacation soon!

Hi there, I am Christina! Besides my family and horses, my next love is Travel!  My background is in Anthropology and spent much of my younger years doing field work in Costa Rica, Thailand, Malaysia, and China.  Like most of you, I backpacked through all of Europe and have a familial connect to Scotland and the UK. Currently, my family and I are looking forward to some new travel adventures.  So, stay tuned!

I get really excited for our clients when I learn about new destinations, and unique ways to travel around the world. My hope is that we will provide a very personalized and curated experience in creating itineraries. I’m always on the hunt for great experiences and excursions as well.  

In house, I am the “jack-of-all” trades. I assist Jan with many of the moving parts that occur in the travel industry.  We pride ourselves in providing high levels of customer service and satisfaction.  Additionally, I handle all our social media content, which is a creative outlet and inspiration for me.  I feel very fortunate to be in an industry where we get to help make peoples’ dreams a reality.  A job which Gateway Destinations takes very seriously!  Give us a call today, let us be a part of your next adventure.
