Hi, I'm Katie!

Meet Your Advisor

I’m passionate about taking the road less traveled … often with my four kids in tow! After a lifetime of exploring, I’ve learned that it really pays to have a plan when you embark on a bucket-list escape. Because, with the investment you make in your vacation (and I’m talking both time & $$$), you should have much more than a “cookie cutter” experience to write home about.

That’s where I come in. I’m here to obsess over the details and formulate a tailored-to-you plan for enjoying your journey to its fullest.


Are you seeking … the Eiffel Tower in Paris, or elephants in the Serengeti? Do you want to … splash into an island adventure, or slurp pasta in Positano? Come discover our wide variety of travel planning specialties—always tailored to how you want to explore:
