Meet Leslie Wright of Cruise Planners, a new cruise-based travel agency in Covington. With a love of a travel since she was a little girl, Leslie enjoys planning trips for family and friends. This passion for travel was the impetus for Leslie’s plan to one day purchase her own travel business. In 2019, she took a step toward that dream by working as a travel associate for a cruise franchise. In October 2021, she bought her own – Cruise Planners in Covington – where she helps clients plan cruises to Alaska, the Caribbean, Europe, and more.
Leslie’s long-term plan is to do travel planning full-time when she retires early, so she can see more of the world herself. Her all-time favorite destination is Hawaii, but she has been all around the world, including Switzerland and South Africa. Two trips left on her bucket list are Bali and Maldives.
Want to learn more? Meet Leslie at an upcoming Chamber event, or visit Leslie online at https://www.travelandsea.com/ or on her YouTube channel, Travel and Sea.

Meet Victor Torres and Peter Haroldson of the Law Offices of Torres & Haroldson. Serving the greater Maple Valley-Covington-Black Diamond area, the firm joined the Chamber earlier this year at the Community Leader level.
Though they both have had impressive careers and degrees prior to teaming up in 2018, Victor (Seattle University) and Peter (Tulane University) say they are “just regular dudes” with families who enjoy serving the community in a variety of ways. Victor specializes in personal injury law, wrongful death, employment law and litigation. Peter has a family-centered practice which includes domestic relations, estate planning, and elder law.
“We are one of you for you,” they say.
If you visit their law offices in the historic Gibbon House, you will find a few surprises throughout, including some of the original design features of the home, a Batman mirror, Yoda, a 49ers football and Victor’s red cape signifying his status as a Super Lawyer. You’ll also find staff including an associate, two paralegals, and a client relations liaison. When not at work, Victor and Peter are often shuttling their kids back and forth to sports games and events or participating in community events like the Fishing Derby.
