BY A S H L E Y R I C K S going on faith [ winter 2017 ] Leading Women of Faith [ THE PRISCILLA WOMAN'S TOURS ] CINDI BRODHECKER WHO DO YOU PLAN FOR? Cindi Brodhecker is the owner of The Priscilla Woman's Tours and the president of Faith Travel Development and Consulting. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BIBLE VERSE? Galatians 6:10 Brodhecker prefers the simplicity of this passage in the Amplified Bible, which she paraphrases as "Be mindful to be a blessing to the brethren." WHERE ARE YOU FROM? Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE DESTINATION? Brodhecker's favorite destination is Greece. Her first international trip was to Greece, and her fami- ly is Greek. WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES? Reading. C indi Brodhecker didn't start out with a career in travel; instead, she jokingly refers to this change of profession as her midlife crisis. Previously, she worked in accounting and office management, but she had her "aha!" moment when she began working for a motor- coach company. She fell in love with travel and decided that was what she wanted to do with the rest of her life. Since changing course to a life in travel, she has become a pioneer in the faith travel industry. Brodhecker started her own company, The Priscilla Woman's Tours. Her company seeks to provide wholesome and fun-filled experiences, as well as spiritual growth, for women through travel. Her trips are unusual in the sense that they are women- only trips, but this allows for a more tailored and empowering experience. Brodhecker is also the president of Faith Travel Development and Consulting and contributes to various faith-focused efforts in both the tourism and publishing industries. Even though she is now "semiretired," Brodhecker still takes an active role in her com- pany and continues to go on many of the trips.
