MB Schmidt - Quainoo, Owner/Manager/Travel Consultant

MB's zest for travel started while planning a trip to Hawaii in the late 1970s. Intrigued with the old OAG books piled high on the travel agent's desk and the hand-written airline tickets, travel quickly became her passion.

MB's travel career began right out of college in the spring of 1984. Thanks to advances in technology, travel agents' desks are clear of thick OAG books and guides, but the principles and importance of attention to detail remain to this day

MB loves to think and work through all details of trip planning and is determined to make every trip as easy and carefree as possible.

Her travels have taken her throughout the US, Asia, Europe, Scandinavia, Central America, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Since her husband is originally from Ghana, West Africa, African journeys are forever frequent!

Cheryl Fenster, Travel Consultant

Cheryl Fenster has a background in accounting and business administration. After some involvement in local economic development, she started her own travel consulting business, Legacy Travel, in 1991. After much growth, she joined forces with Northland Travel in 1995.

Cheryl has seen many changes in the travel industry over the years. The value of a good travel agent can't be beaten when it comes to navigating all your travel options, and Cheryl understands this well. Providing high-quality service is Cheryl's favorite part of her profession.

Saving time and helping you plan your trip to match your unique needs, desires, and expectations are truly Cheryl's forté.

Patty Beyer, Travel Consultant

Growing up in the cold northern Minnesota winters had this future travel agent dreaming of warm weather destinations. After graduating from NDSU, Patty worked as a flight attendant and developed the travel bug.

During her 12 years with Northland Travel, she's taken many educational trips to Mexico, Hawaii, and the Caribbean. These trips give her extensive product knowledge with various warm-weather getaways. Patty has studied Sandals, Couples, Hyatt, Palace, Playa, Karisma, Barcelo, Secrets, Dreams, Hard Rock Resorts, and more.

She loves to share her picture collection with everyone she assists, so they can get a better idea of the experience that awaits them.

Did you catch the part about being an NDSU grad? It's true! Patty is a proud member of The Herd as an energetic season ticket holder for Bison Football. Go BISON!
