our team

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.

work with US

A lifelong Anglophile, and book lover, I have always had a special appreciation for calico cats, shortbread, the color pink, and the beautiful city of Paris. I am married to my husband Larry,
and as a military wife, I have been privileged to live in and travel throughout Europe for the last twenty years. We have recently moved to West Virginia and settled into our forever home.

At MMarkham Travel, I am thrilled to be the client care coordinator, where I can use my passion and expertise to help make our clients’ travel dreams come true. Whether you're looking for an adventure in Venice, a breathtaking trip to the Amalfi Coast, or a serene trip through the pastoral landscapes of England, we can help you plan an unforgettable journey. If you're looking for a unique travel experience, consider exploring the undiscovered beauty of Wales, or visiting Bavaria's castles, which will transport you straight into a childhood storybook.

And if Europe isn't your cup of tea, why not take an Alaskan cruise, embark on an African safari, or visit the stunning beaches of the Seychelles? There's no shortage of incredible destinations waiting for you, from the remarkable ecosystem of the Galapagos to the ancient pyramids of Egypt.

The world is waiting for you, and we’re here to help you explore it!

This isn’t just a vacation—it’s a journey. What’s the difference? A genuine journey brims over with thrilling discovery, authentic connections, and surprises around every corner. Our access to best-of-the-best tour operators and guides get you nothing less than a journey to remember.

Picture: eye-opening walking tours, scrumptious cooking classes, private yacht excursions, and after-hours museum visits. Even our more “rest and reset” vacations blend in some vibrant cultural exploration—think taking a break from your Cabo resort to dive into some hidden cenotes.

We strive for nothing less than seamless for our clients. From the moment you reach out to us, your trip planning goes from “overwhelming” to “effortless.” Your personal travel designer will take the helm of your entire travel experience, stitching together a custom itinerary that unfolds as smoothly as a glass of Shiraz (or top-shelf tequila—take your pick!).

We invite you to leave it all to us.

"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!
