Julie Marie Cunningham
Founder of Heavenly Weddings Inc./Julie’s Star Travel Agency
When it comes to travel she is not only a specialist but a novice. She is a beast when it comes to sales and marketing. Throughout high school and college she was always a Team Leader! Julie is a big believer in winning but it did not come easy. She graduated with a degree in Bachelor of Fine Arts and never knew that today she would be running her own business. Her Travel career started in 2005 when she decided to leave corporate NY where her main focus was in Radio and Print Sales. Leaving the city was a big change with a salary decline but she wanted to start a family. She decided to focus on retail sales in the Travel Industry. Realizing how much she loved it, she excelled and worked her way to being a top agent. After losing her job due to medical issues during her pregnancy…her life took a drastic change. Not being able to work due to bedrest and with no money coming in she launched Heavenly Weddings Inc./Julie Star Travel Agency.
Julie was always an entrepreneur and it was nothing new to her. Building a business would be the only way to take care of her family flexibly. Her brick and mortar agency has been a labor of love. Thankful to God, Family and friends she opened her first storefront in 2012. When she felt like giving up her brother told her “Failure Is Not An Option” and these are the words she lives by every day. Travel is a full time business for her and she has opened doors for other agents to make money too. What satisfies her most is the relationship building, smiles, testimonials and pictures she gets back from travelers who have experiences that she helped to create. The internet competition has not stopped her from giving her clients their dream vacation. Julie Cunningham is a vibrant woman who genuinely loves people, serving her community and wants to encourage others to step out in Faith.
Along with being her own boss she is a wife, a mother to her 8 year old daughter and 6 year old son. She also serves as Fundraising Vice President of the PTA for Howell Road School. Somehow, she also finds time to serve as Executive Concierge for Beautiful Men and Women’s Focus Retreat which specializes in personal development.
