Hi, my name is Clarissa Winchester.

I hail from Huntsville, Alabama but have called Birmingham, AL home for nearly 20 years. I’ve been a homeschool mom since 2004 and began Field Trips R Us Homeschooling in 2013 in an effort to provide my children and other local homeschoolers broader access to field trips. Over the years FTRU grew to include destinations outside of Birmingham such as Mexico, Washington D.C., Dauphin Island Sea Lab and Orlando. We now have private and public school students traveling with us and our participants are nationwide.

In 2016 I became a travel consultant to better serve the needs of our participants wanting to continue our group travel, all the while continuing to offer our local field trips here at home.

I am thrilled to serve as a travel consultant with Classic Travel Connection in Birmingham. I believe travel has always been in my blood as my father hails from Mexico and took us to visit many times. I am also a former Cast Member at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida with the Disney College Program in the 1990s.

While planning travel opportunities for FTRU, I also plan vacations for individuals and other groups of all ages. Being service oriented and getting clients from the planning stage to the destination is at the heart of Memories Await Travel. If I can serve you with your travel needs, do not hesitate to contact me at!
