Meet Merry Jennifer Markham, Founder of MMarkham Travel

I started MMarkham Travel because I’ve always been a planner—and I’ve seen first-hand the power travel has to open minds and hearts in my own family. Whether they’re tearing through the Louvre on a private treasure hunt or leading a dog sled across a gleaming glacier in Alaska, my children always return home from our trips filled to the brim with burning curiosity about the world around them. 

I was also inspired to start my travel agency by my other great life passion: medicine. I’ve worked as an oncologist for the past two decades, and I’ve shared many heart-rending moments with my cancer patients through the years.

If there’s one thread that ties far too many of my patients together, it’s regret. They regret what they didn’t do in life—not spending more time with their loved ones, away from their offices and hectic schedules. 

I wish I could turn back the clock for them, and give them that precious time back. That’s what I hope to do for my clients today through MMarkham Travel—create moments that foster fierce connection to the most important people in your life, and to the beauty that surrounds us all. Through authentic travel, you can fill your time with vibrant experiences that transform into memories you’ll treasure forever.

my current obsession:

• My Jibun-Techo planner - nothing beats an analog planner
• The Audible app and my Kindle - having a book available at all times is key
• Almond milk lattes

my favorite destination

All of them! Okay, if I have to name one, I’ll say Paris. There is so much to see and explore in Paris, and I could walk those streets for hours taking it all in. And I have!

my best piece of travel advice

Be flexible. Travel is unpredictable - because life is unpredictable. Take deep breaths and be patient when things don’t go quite as planned. 

my favorite travel memory

One of my favorite travel memories is of sitting at a picnic table on the balcony of the Plain of Six Glaciers Tea House in Banff National Park with my family after an intense hike up the mountain from the shores of Lake Louise. As we sat there enjoying slices of chocolate cake and cool lemonade, we heard only the occasional quiet conversations of the other hikers who’d made the trek, the chatter of birds in the trees above us, the murmur of a snowmelt-fed creek nearby, and the periodic rumble of avalanches echoing across the valley from the neighboring mountain.

"Working with Merry Jennifer removed any of the stress that can be associated with planning an international trip - and instead, allowed us to simply enjoy the entire adventure. All of the aspects of the trip flowed seamlessly and we felt continuously taken care of, even from across the ocean.  It was a dream vacation!
