Anita Pagliasso, Founder and President of Ticket To Travel, started her own home-based travel agency in 1992. Anita’s one-person business quickly evolved into a Premiere Host Agency when agents looked to her for mentoring and guidance in building their own travel business. By generously and thoughtfully sharing her success tactics, Anita has become a renowned industry speaker, home-based travel agent advocate, author and a mentor to thousands. She is also a member of The Travel Institute’s Professional Educators Program. She understands firsthand the pros and cons of working from home. But most of all, she knows how to be successful. Anita continues to share her passion for the travel industry and her strategies for success with all of the Ticket To Travel affiliated agents.

Matt Wahlgren Portrait

Matt Wahlgren

Matt's career in travel began as a hobby. After returning from the Peace Corps in 2006, he began to help family and friends with their own travel plans. By sharing his experiences abroad he inspired and assisted them as they created their own trips and memories. In 2014, by chance, he got the opportunity to turn his passion into a career, and never looked back.

As the Supplier & Industry Relations Manager, Matt is responsible for developing strong relationships with our trusted partners in the travel industry to ensure our agents get the best support. He keeps our agents informed of industry events such as conferences, webinars, ship inspections, familiarization trips, and even local luncheons and dinners so our agents have a deep understanding of what travel products to offer their clients.
