    1. Nena Solas, Salve Business Owner - "I consider Avril to be my mentor. Avril assisted me in setting up my 2 businesses and helped me step outside of my comfort zone, something I would likely never have done on my own. Today my businesses are successful and growing and I still go to Avril for help and assistance whenever I get stuck or need some new ideas. I highly recommend Avril as a mentor to others starting a business."

She is truly passionate about customer service. That is, making sure each and every client receives exceptional service. I had the pleasure of delivering business coaching for her team. One of the key items Avril wanted me to teach, emphasis and focus on was customer service. She knows that customer service differentiates her company in the marketplace.

      Additionally, Avril is also very hard working, creative and focused. She has been very successful in all of her numerous business endeavors. It is no surprise. She focuses on her customers; backs it up with a superbly trained team, and when you add in a dash of creativity, it is all the ingredients to make her successful. In the travel industry, she is at the top; and she will make you feel like you are at the top, when you work with her."
