About Our Team
Suzanne Stemper, Owner
Hello! I'm Suzanne Stemper, owner and founder of Adventures of a Lifetime Travel and Cruise. I have over 30 years of experience in the travel industry, and absolutely love sharing my passion of traveling with others.
I have a degree in travel and tourism, and am accredited by IATA (International Air Transport Association as well as a member of DWHSA (Destination Wedding & Honeymoon Specialists Association).
I love living in southeast South Dakota, but also love seeing the world! I am originally from Hawaii, and that beautiful state is home in my heart. I have also lived in Alaska twice, so Hawaiian and Alaskan vacations are a couple of my specialties!
My passion for traveling started with my father. He was a pilot and instilled the love of flying and adventure into me. Now I love sharing that passion with my clients!
Doug - Guide
Can you believe I hadn't EVER been on a plane before I met my wife Suzanne in 2001? She showed me how amazing travel is, and I haven't looked back since. We can't wait to help you create the adventures you've dreamed of!
Jake Koa - Assistant
Sure, I haven't seen as much of the world as my colleagues have, but I bring just as much to the table as everyone else. I make sure the team takes regular walks to get their creative juices flowing and am a daily example of how to maintain endless energy and enthusiasm for life!
