About Your Travel Advisor

A big-city girl with an even bigger wanderlust, combined with a curiosity of different cultures, I try to balance a "normal" life with a desire to discover the world one place at a time. My goal is to inspire people to be adventurous and encourage an approach which finds ways to fit more travel into the lifestyle they already have. To extend my optimism that travel is accessible to everyone including a 9 to 5er, I started 9to5 Travels.

I am a professional who is well-versed in the fun and rigors of traveling. My  travel agency came together to help other people plan and book their dream vacations within their budget. To make it possible, I am partnered with some of the best suppliers and tour operators in the business.

As a specialist in a select group of hotel and resort chains, I am extensively trained to offer you a one-stop concierge vacation planning experience.  My clients will benefit from my continuing education, relationships I have established and continue to create in order to better offer you a personalized service so that you do not have to stress.

Through consultation, I will offer the best vacation package and travel deal that suits your budget and painstakingly curate a special option for you. The vendors and suppliers which I work with qualify me to offer the very best value and provide a VIP experience with no extra fees.

Whether you are looking for a cruise, plane tickets, accommodations, or the whole package, we have you covered. Simply tell me where you would like to go and I will help you figure out the rest.

I work directly with trusted companies to get you the best deals. Unlike traditional online booking engines, you will always get someone on the phone to support your travel needs.  With complete dedication to exceptional service and the growth of my business, I am enthused to work hard for all new clients and will lend my education and training as a travel professional as well as offer the very best in travel services.

While working with 9to5 Travels, I want you to be completely happy with the experience. If you have questions about us, our services, or even travel tips, get in touch! I hope you continue to book with 9to5 Travels for many years to come. Your satisfaction is my business.


I pride myself of industry knowledge and education. I've contributed and have been quoted in several publications.


"First time I used 9to5 travel services and I have to say that travel agent Dawn helped me plan one of the best vacation trip that me and my kids enjoyed. She listened to every detail on how I wanted this vacation to be and was able to work everything in. I'll definitely be planning more future trips with 9to5 Travel Services. Thanks Dawn."

"Back in April my best friend and I booked a trip to Jamaica with Dawn. And it was amazing and I'm so grateful she found us the perfect resort within our budget. Even after dealing with flight delays & issues Dawn made sure that we wouldn't have to pay extra or anything like that. Would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to book a vacation without all the stress! Keep doing great work!"

"Our travel specialist Dawn Gonzalez worked within our price range for our flight to Greece as well as hotels. She sent us prices for various hotels she recommended in Santorini, both with varying locations and prices as well as tours. She went above and beyond to make sure that is what my husband and I wanted. Even while in Greece we had some questions that needed answered, which she did immediately. Our trip to Greece was amazing. I can't thank Dawn enough for choosing El Greco resort and working within our price range."

"I traveled to Mexico with Dawn (travel agent) and she found me a great price on airfare and found us a beautiful resort to stay at, as well. She was very diligent in her searches. I'm glad I was able to join her and be a part of her vacation Plans. I will be sure to continue booking through her for future travel plans!"

"Just came back from a wonderful trip to Martha's Vineyard organized by 9to5 travel services. The flight, ground transportation and hotel were all part of the package. Dawn gave numerous activity suggestions & even got me into a fabulous party my first night there! No one will search higher or lower to find the best deal for you!"
