Shonda Merrick

Shonda Merrick is the founder and CEO of Love Travel Girl, a luxury travel agency, specializing in signature group and private journeys.

It was in her hometown of Chicago on a 4th grade trip to the local library, where her passion for travel was ignited after reading her first National Geographic magazine.

This began her lifelong romance with travel and reading. Since then, she has traveled and planned journeys to some of the world’s most coveted destinations-exploring over 30 countries on 5 continents.

Her professional career over the last two decades was built as a leader in the corporate event industry.

Throughout the years, she successfully managed a unique mix of high-profile events hosting up to 20,000 guests for the real estate, non-profit, banking and financial services industries. When she is not traveling you can find her at home in Southern California with her husband, children and grandchildren dreaming up her family’s next adventure.
