Loreal Shea developed a love of travel and experiencing different cultures at a young age during her explorations across Western Europe. Her passion continued during her time at Wake Forest University, where she enrolled at the University of Cape Town, South Africa for a semester.

Once she returned, she gained experience in travel consulting as a Study Abroad Peer Adviser at Wake’s Center of International Studies. In this role, Loreal truly began to realize her desire to share with others the eye opening experience that travel can provide.

Her favorite memories from her travels include sitting at the very edge of Victoria’s Falls, Zambia, scuba diving with sea lions in the Galapagos Islands, and taking a leap of faith when paragliding in the Swiss Alps.

Loreal is currently a Luxury Travel Advisor at Rudi Steele Travel, a Virtuoso agency that has serviced the DFW Metroplex for over 35 years. Recently named to Travel Agent Magazine’s 30Under30, Loreal is committed to providing her clients with unique and memorable experiences across the globe.
