Jennifer Maki always had a desire to work in travel from the young age of 16 and a career assessment test confirmed this, however, her high school guidance counselor swayed her away warning that the internet would be readily available and soon everyone would be booking their vacations online. That was in the 90s. Fearful of starting in a dying profession, she pursued other avenues but the travel bug bit her at a young age and the itch needed scratching! Enter 2007: Divine Destinations was born after countless weekends cooped up in a camper with three kids under the age of 5. Desperate for a change of pace and desire to see new sites, Jennifer researched travel agencies and found no one was hiring so she opened her own offfice! Eight years later and almost 30 stamps in her passport, Jennifer has made it her mission to be the expert, or Diva, in destinations she recommends to her clients. On a recent trip she was able to see a swim out suite at a popular resort for honeymooners. Shocked to see the “Swim out” included a patch of grass and sidewalk between the patio and the pool, not to mention it was located next to the bustling area of the restaurant’s kitchen! Anyone can do a google search but there is value in someone who can say they’ve been there and have the pictures to prove it. Jennifer can easily recommend a property or destination and her clients relax knowing she does it in a fraction of the time they could and they are confident that she has put their best interest first.
Her passion for Romance Travel shines through in her attention to details in Destination Weddings, Honeymoons, Vow Renewals and Couples Getaways. You may have seen her palm tree/bikini clad car roll down the highway a time or two! Her contacts in the islands makes her the expert when searching for that memorable trip or milestone event! As one hotel manager said, “A friend of the diva is a friend of mine!” Divine Destinations doesn’t just book trips or take your vacation order, you make lifelong friends as a bonus! Her strong love of the islands has also driven her to become a Certified Sandals Specialist & WeddingMoons Specialist, Hard Rock Resorts WOW Specialist amongst many other industry accreditations. She and her team of Divas have been awarded many awards for their excellence including being the top producers and she has the only preferred Sandals Agency in the Northern MN area!
When not jet setting to the Caribbean to scout out the latest destination for her clients, Jennifer lives in Cloquet with her family including three kids; Alicia, Eero & Anja.
