IMAGINATION: The Story of Magical Vacation Planner
Could a personal love for making memories be transformed into a company that helps other people make memories? If it were possible, that company would need to be built on personalized service, expert care, and attention to detail. Jamie Eubanks imagined it. She believed in memories and in the power of a dream. Walt Disney had inspired her with his famous words, “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.”
And so the adventure began! Jamie set out as the one and only agent of Magical Vacation Planner. With the support of her husband, J.J. Eubanks, she decided to open a store front travel agency for a headquarters instead of a home based agency. Jamie wanted to meet people face to face if possible. That humble first year has grown into a great big beautiful tomorrow so that 100 agents now call Magical Vacation Planner home. And since we still believe in dreams, we’re still growing right along side the clients who trust us to help their dreams come true.
Times have progressed and many of Magical Vacation Planner’s clients now have contact with our company via the internet. Although this electronic age sometimes puts miles between us and our clients, the goal of our agents is to provide you with service that has the feel of ‘face to face’ personal care.
Our clients will tell you that the personal service is the most valuable part of a travel experience. It’s difficult to make wonderful memories while being stressed over the details. That’s why we always say, “Experience the Magic; Leave the Planning to Us!”
Jamie Eubanks has spent nearly two decades in the travel industry but the years since Magical Vacation Planner’s inception in 2006 have been the most fulfilling. Jamie’s childhood was spent here in Mitchell, Indiana, before attending Sullivan University where she graduated Magna Cum Laude with three degrees:
Associates of Science in Travel & Tourism
Associates of Science in Sales & Marketing
Bachelors of Science Degree in Business with a focus on Sales & Marketing
Jamie married J.J. Eubanks, also a Sullivan University Graduate, shortly after college and spent the next 14 years globetrotting the world with him while he played professional basketball in the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Argentina, Greece, Italy, Japan, Israel and Cypress.
When J.J. retired from professional basketball, he and Jamie were looking forward to time at home and home meant Mitchell. J.J. started a new career as a Corporate Sales Trainer and a Motivational Speaker for a company located in Southern Indiana. He also is CFO of Magical Vacation Planner and greatly enjoys using his business knowledge and skills to add to the company’s success in making memories for our agents and clients.
