(MOORESVILLE, NC – August 12, 2020) Gifted Travel Network is excited to announce that Travel MBA graduate, Tesa Totengco of Travels with Tesa, was invited to join the prestigious Travel Advisory Board (TAB) for Travel + Leisure magazine.

TAB is a hand-selected group of 27 owners and operators of the country’s most influential travel agencies. This esteemed group of travel advisors collaborate with T + L to share their skilled knowledge and opinions of the ever-changing consumer travel trends.
