Our Team

Taunya Wolfe Finn

Owner and Travel Enthusiast

With a double major in Tourism & PR and a Masters in TESOL from the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg, MO, Taunya found tourism to be the path to take. She lived and traveled overseas for a bit, journeyed to Boston in the latter-‘90s and can’t seem to leave! Through the years, she has worked with some great tour companies in-house and on the road as a tour manager. Wolfe Adventures & Tours has been a part of her life since 2002 when she founded the company as a Boston Area Local Guiding Company from the ground up. Since then, it’s grown into a full service tour operation; creating day and overnight tours with unique experiences. Taunya has been asked to be a guest lecturer for University Tourism classes and taken part on various tourism panels for NTA and North of Boston CVB through the recent years. Other activities include the NTA Leadership Team and Owner’s Network, as well as serving on the NBCVB Board of Directors.
Mellisa Athon

Band Director and Musician

Melissa is a lifelong musician with a Bachelor’s in Music Performance a Master’s in Music History and Literature with a certificate in Instrumental Music Education. She taught for 18 years as a band director ranging from beginning instrumental, middle school band, and high school band programs. Her personal experience as a band director and taking her students on band trips over her teaching career has given her a unique perspective and attention to detail when working with our student tours and ensuring their trips fit the needs of a specific group. She married her college sweetheart, Joe, who is also a post graduate musician and together they have 3 kids who also have found enjoyment in playing an instrument. In her spare time she enjoys playing her flute, gardening, and being a parent to her 3 kids who are all instrumentalists as well!
Sue Sarsfield

Operations Manager

Susan has been with Wolfe since 2008 and has jumped in with both feet, to say the least! Working at a large group tour operation in a past life of sales and also taking care of her own businesses, she has found staying in the tourism world might just be the way to go. Being bi-lingual in Portuguese and English is certainly an added advantage in the tourism world. Detailed special tour projects and accounting does not faze her in the least. And if you’re calling or emailing in to make sure you’re all set for your next tour, you’ll probably get the chance to talk!

Erin has a passion for philanthropy, fitness and the outdoors and loves her little rural lifestyle based on the North Shore of Boston.

Student Tour In Boston, May 2022

As a teacher, I have been on quite a few 8th grade trips to the east coast. This trip by far was the best I have ever had! It was clear throughout the experience that students were having a great time.
Most trips are just museum after museum, but there were so many interactive opportunities for our students that there was never a dull moment. Taunya was an amazing leader; So professional and organized with an Insight to know what 8th graders want. I loved it so much! I would go again. Thank you Wolfe Tours!
