My Name Is... Brenda Skogen

Castle Rock woman opens Expedia travel agency with her husband


About me

I am a Colorado native. My family and I have lived in Castle Rock for over 10 years. We have three daughters as well as three dogs and two chinchillas — our “fur children.” Our middle daughter graduated from Castle View High School, while our youngest is attending Castle Rock Middle School. 

A career in travel

I have been in the travel industry since 1985. Most of my career has been managing corporate travel programs for large global companies here in Colorado. However, I also worked for Delta Airlines as a corporate travel account manager. I began my career in the hotel industry in Arizona and became a travel agent while living there. I booked a lot of cruises and vacations before transitioning into corporate travel where I remained for the better part of my career. More recently, I felt it was time to return to the reason I wanted to get into travel in the first place, which was to help people plan their unforgettable journeys.

Opening my travel agency

Expedia CruiseShipCenters, Castle Rock is a full-service travel agency that specializes in cruises. We are navigators of spectacular vacation experiences. No matter where you want to go, we can help. As part of the Expedia family of travel companies, we have access to the same prices as Hotels.com, Hotwire.com, Travelocity.com, and of course, Expedia.com. However, we also have access to deeper discounts not found on the internet and we can design the trip of your dreams at no additional cost to the traveler!

What we hope to provide

We are looking forward to creating a travel agency that is well known in the Castle Rock and the larger Douglas County community. We are the first Expedia CruiseShipCenters in Colorado and strive to provide people a great vacation planning experience. Let us do the research for you and save you the time and hassle of trolling the internet for deals.  We have them at our fingertips and can provide the service and support you will not find on the internet. 

My mantra

Travel is the only thing you can buy that makes you richer.
