Maintaining her father’s original vision of personal service and worry-free travel is incredibly important to Tami, as she leads the BRT team with her brother, Todd. She wears many hats in her role, doing everything from creating exclusive events for groups and meeting with clients all over the country, to performing fashion makeovers for clients upon request (where she has the chance to utilize her fashion merchandising degree, as well as her keen fashion sense!). The legacy she carries, the relationships she enjoys and the meaningful moments she helps to create are what Tami enjoys most about her work at BRT.

My favorite travel memory
Even though I’m 100% American, I grew up thinking I was 100% Italian so my visit to Italy would have to be my favorite. The people were so welcoming, the food was delicious and the surroundings were breathtaking. Trying to get lost in Venice still stands out as my favorite day. I have been twice and hope to return very soon and you never know, I may get lost on my next trip and have to extend my stay.
My hobbies and pastimes
I enjoy attending my girls’ piano recitals, show choir performances, plays, soccer games, and softball games. I love to read. I follow up every fiction book with a non-fiction book because I always want to be learning. I am also a shopaholic. I enjoy decorating our home as well as dressing up my girls.
My favorite book
“A Moveable Feast” by Ernest Hemingway. I just recently started reading Hemingway and I can’t put his books down. I admire how passionate Hemingway was. It didn’t matter if he was having lunch with a friend, admiring Picasso’s masterpieces, or attending a race; he put 110% into what he was doing and shared his enthusiasm with the people around him. I believe I share Hemingway’s passion and enthusiasm in my work and in my personal life.
The personal touches that BRT provides. Your company gets to know the people they work with. I have never felt like a "number" with BRT.
Class Trip, 2018 DC tour
Columbia Central Junior High School
I appreciated the flexibility Bob Rogers showed us with the billing and various payments we had to make. We thought we were adding more and ended up not but you were great about giving us extra time to work out what we needed to on our end.

We have always been so well taken care of and the personal attention is what makes your company special.

The quality of service that you provided us with was second to none. The organization and communication were exceptional and we always felt we were in “the loop” on things both before and during the trip.

Amos Alonzo Stagg High School
BRT hands down has been the absolute best travel company I have worked with in my 18 years in education. My interactions with BRT have always been so much more than just traveling from one destination to another...the focus has always been on people and providing them with experiences of a lifetime.
