In 2003, Cherie was asked to join the team at YellowPages.com and build Yellow Pages Travel. Within a year, Yellow Pages Travel sold to SBC-Bell South for $13 Million. In 2005, Cherie partnered with the Yellow Pages Travel team to build the listing service AlwaysOnVacation.com, which now has more than 100,000 listings.
