FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LOCAL TRAVEL PROFESSIONAL TAMMY DOUCETTE BECOMES AN SNG CERTIFIED ACCESSIBLE TRAVEL ADVOCATE (TM)

TROY, NY – January 2022 – Tammy Doucette, travel agent/owner with Tammy Doucette Dream Vacations, recently received certification from Special Needs Group, Inc. (www.specialneedsgroup.com), a global provider of special needs equipment for the travel industry, to specialize in special needs/accessible travel. To earn the distinction, Doucette participated in Special Needs Group’s in-depth online 3 module certification program.

Through the program, agents gain an understanding of the special needs/accessible travel market. They learn about the best equipment to rent for special needs travel, ways to market special needs/accessible travel, and more.

Nationwide, one in seven persons has some form of disability, and one in five families is touched. By specializing in special needs/accessible travel, Doucette has the ability to help this large percentage of the population travel in an enjoyable, safe and efficient manner.

Doucette has worked as a travel agent for 2 years, specializing in creating custom-made travel - where every part of the trip is created individually to suit your style, taste, and budget. Before this Doucette spent 25 years working within the non-profit sector, helping people and now being certified by SNG gives her the ability to continue to do so.

“Through Special Needs’ courses, I not only learned how to assist individuals with special needs to enjoy travel, but I found some very valuable new ways to serve the needs of all of my clients,” said Doucette. “The population, as well as the travel industry itself, has undergone major changes in the past few years. By completing this program, I have the ability to stay on the cutting edge of these changes and create opportunities for my clients.”
