My Story

My name is Shajuana McMillan Austin, and I’m the owner of McMillan Elite Travel. I currently live in Wimauma, FL, about 10 miles south of Tampa, FL. My hometown is Emory, TX, which is about 60 miles east of Dallas, TX. I have an AS Degree from Tyler Junior College, BS Degree from Texas A&M – Commerce, and a MS Degree from Amberton University in Human Relations & Business.

The idea to provide travel opportunities for everyone started over 20 years ago while helping to plan yearly family vacations. We started planning early, allowing everyone the opportunity to share in our experiences.  My belief is with researching, organizing and planning, everyone can travel and experience the world!

As a single parent I did not have the opportunity to travel as much as I desired.  I have always had an entrepreneurial mind-set, however I was unsure of how to make my travel dreams a reality therefore my goal became to travel upon retirement.

My dad became ill in 2009 and was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  He died at the early age of 62. My dad had always talked about traveling the world when he retired, but he never got that opportunity.

 

Surprisingly I had the opportunity to travel internationally for the first time in May 2018.  As a matter of fact, I attended the Procession for the Royal Wedding on May 19, 2018. I did not plan it, it just happened. We even had our airline tickets before the engagement was announced. This was one vacation to remember!  As soon as I arrived home, I started writing my long travel bucket list. I now knew what I wanted to do and McMillan Elite Travel in September 2018 was started.  Life is short and tomorrow is not promised. I encourage everyone to travel now and not wait for retirement.

McMillan Elite Travel started from a passion for travel, and the belief that everyone can have the opportunity to travel.  Pre-planning can provide many options and gives people of all ages and income the ability to travel.  Let McMillan Elite Travel help you experience the world through travel.
