My name is Stephanie Robinson. I am the owner of Double J Travel By Stef, LLC. I am an Independent Travel Agent.
I am the single mother of two girls. Jasmine Hawkins, the eldest, is a budding make up artist who also attends Troy University. The youngest, Jayla Hawkins, who attends Auburn University, is a Journalism major who published her first book, The Sarmiento Sisters, at the age of 15. (Double J – Jasmine and Jayla, you get it ☺)
I was born in Fort Meade, Maryland but I was only there for about 3 months before moving to my hometown of Anniston, Alabama. After graduating in 1988, I joined the U.S. Army and spent 22 1/2 years in that came to a close at Fort Benning, Georgia. I held numerous positions while in to include: Squad Leader, Platoon Sergeant, Detachment Sergeant, Drill Sergeant and AIT Instructor.
I was then deployed to several places in support of the Global War on Terrorism (from Desert Storm to Enduring Freedom). I was a 88M (Motor Transport Operator for the first 17 years when a medical board necessitated a change to 36B Financial Management Technician. I am now retired and trying to enjoy life.
As an avid traveler I was always the one who put together the arrangements for family trips. I would search for deals even if I had to stay up a little late finding the best value, the greatest locations, the best tickets and all things that go towards a great traveling experience at the best price possible. I bring that same passion to my role as an Independent Travel Agent.
