Sandra Schwartz, Bronx born, raised at the Shore in Long Branch, New Jersey, attended Monmouth College, and graduated from The Ohio State University with a degree in Marketing. This explains her lifelong passion for the New York Yankees, New York Giants, and the OSU Buckeyes. Since she couldn’t attain her life goal of becoming an astronaut, Sandy jumped in her trusty VW and headed to the new frontier, Los Angeles, in 1967.
After a couple of years in the Marketing Department of Mattel Toy Company, Sandy married Peter Gelmini , raised six kids, and in 1978 started her own travel business, A Premier Travel Service, in Hacienda Heights, California. After affiliations with the mega travel franchises Uniglobe Travel and Carlson Wagonlit Travel, Sandy set up A Premier Travel as a sole proprietorship.
While Sandy has unparalleled experience in air travel, she enjoys the varied aspects of planning clients vacations. She enjoys the relationship with her clients, planning their trips both corporate and leisure, researching worldwide destinations, and making new supplier contacts to better serve her clients.
Sandy is involved in travel 24/7; it is what she loves to do. A Premier Travel is strengthened by her affiliations with some of the largest and strongest travel groups: Travel Leaders, a multibillion dollar travel group, Tzell Travel one of the largest corporate travel management companies, Your Travel Center, the Santa Barbara based travel association, and Virtuoso Travel, the top luxury travel company, through her association with Montecito Village Travel.
In her spare time Sandy is a member of Temple Beth Ohr in La Mirada, California, and a longtime member of Soroptimist of America, a worldwide group of women who dedicate their time to the global improvement of the lives of women and girls. Science Fiction and Mysteries, in both print and film take up her leisure time along with a love hate relationship with Sudoku.
