With a Bachelor of Arts in global human geography and a minor in history, Clarissa Demmon has a passion for travel and different cultures no matter where she finds herself. Her hobbies of photography and cooking also feed into her love of travel, so on trips, she likes to take a lot of pictures in addition to trying new dishes native to her destination.
Clarissa has traveled all throughout the U.S. with some of her favorite states being Alaska, California and Nevada. She has also visited Mexico multiple times in addition to the islands of the Caribbean including Jamaica and St. Lucia. Demmon said, “Nothing is better than the crystal-clear waters, beauty and warmth of the Caribbean and its people.” When she isn’t exploring new locations, she enjoys spending time with her husband, friends and dog, as well as going to Milwaukee Brewers games and concerts as much as possible.
She finds herself fortunate to be a Tour Manager and escort Fox World Travel groups, including Alaska Fox Group Vacations in the summer and radio station groups in the winter. Demmon said, “It’s wonderful being a part of the client’s experience and excitement all while getting to know them. Vacations are about having the best time you can have and wanting to go back to for another adventure!”
