Hi, my name is Erin Pincivero and I am so excited to be joining the Maple Leaf Tours family. I have recently retired from a wonderful 31 year career as an educator with the Limestone District School Board. I started my career teaching secondary school geography, business and special education. I finished my career with a great 11 years as the principal of Napanee District Secondary School.
I was born and raised in North Bay, Ontario. Each summer we would travel extensively all over North America camping in a tent and eventually in a trailer. Despite being stuck in the back seat of a station wagon with my dog, grandmother and older sister, I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our vacations. These family trips instilled a love of travel in me that has only grown. My parents proved that you didn’t need to be rich to have rich experiences. We camped from PEI, to BC, to Florida and everywhere in between!
My husband Tom and I took many vacations on our own and then with our children Shannon and Mia. Wanderlust has extended to the next generation with Shannon just returning from a 3 year adventure in Australia and Mia traveling to 13 countries this past year.
Our travels as a family include many trips to the USA and the Caribbean, a trip to Europe and more recently a trip to Australia to see Shannon. So far my favourite destinations are the Cayman Islands, Savannah, Georgia and Amalfi, Italy. I am happiest when I am on a trip or planning my next trip! As an educator I believe it is important that we learn about the world around us, how people in other countries and circumstances live and the history of the places we travel. Of course, it is essential that we have lots of fun along the way!
I am excited to share my love of travel and learning with all of the people I meet on our tours with Maple Leaf Tours.
