Dawne Barnes – Modern Travel Professionals

Did you know travel companies – like Disney & Sandals – already include the cost of a Travel Planner in your vacation package?

You are paying a fee every time you book a trip – online or over the phone.

When you book with me, that small fee goes to support my small business – instead of back to the vendor.

So why not get something for you money – advice, insider tips, and guidance from someone with first-hand experience… ME!!

I will even apply deals if they are released after your book, saving you money.


I am a member of CLIA (Cruise Lines International Association) & a Certified Sandals Specialist – who has visited several all-inclusive Caribbean resorts.  I have also completed the College of Disney Knowledge, as well as training for Universal Studios.


You work hard for your vacation dollars – let me work to make sure you get the best deal, with no stress & maybe even some fun during the planning process.

What started as a COVID craft has now turned into Beads By Barson! In late 2020, I was making bracelets for my friends to keep myself busy…other than watching Netflix and being a Special Education teacher! In April of 2021 my friend, Emily Myers, of Emily Myers Beauty, thought more people would be interested in the bracelets. I started selling bracelets at her studio as well as through Instagram. I never could have imagined the overwhelming demand!

The ultimate goal of Beads By Barson is to create bracelets that are personalized, meaningful and versatile. One of my favorite things is hearing the stories from customers behind their desired bracelets- from being trusted to keep baby names top secret to remembering a loved one and everything in between!

I have thoroughly enjoyed every moment of creating bracelets for customers near and far and I can’t wait to see what is in store for Beads By Barson!

Omlie empowers women by providing the tools and education for the ‘canna-curious’ to connect and learn about CBD and cannabis from a beginner’s perspective. We seek to broaden the conversation about cannabis by helping women, who are so often the caretakers of our families, to understand it and how it could be used to help us and our loved ones.

Sarah is not your traditional stoner. She is the founder and CEO of Omlie, and she is on a mission to ‘Make Pot Professional’ and expand the definition of healthcare to include cannabis. She also owns and operates Omlie Consulting, working with clients in the healthcare and cannabis industries to develop transformative strategies and build trusting connected teams.

This is a safe place to ask newbie questions! After all, we aren’t stoners. We are at the beginning of our cannabis journey, navigating this new horizon together. And we believe in the power of community, and that we are better (and have more fun) when we learn and grow together. That’s why we started Omlie, to share our cannabis journey, so we can be by your side in yours.
