My Background

Traveling with my family every summer put the travel bug in me but it wasn't until a few years after college that I decided that this is what I really wanted to do with my life.  So with the support of my husband I went to travel school and began this wonderful journey.  I love "traveling" through my clients trips and am lucky enough to visit places I dream about every day.  When we travel we like to get off the beaten path and see the destination like a local - making sure we include plenty of excursions that not every traveler is lucky enough to do.

Great travel agent

By: Debbie

Reviewed on: 04 Oct 2013

Katie has always been very helpful to me when planning vacations. She always has great suggestions and lots of information about the places we will be going to. She is so easy to talk to and is available whenever I call. If she doesn't answer her phone immediately she calls back very soon afterwards. I wouldn't even consider another agent and would recommend Katie to everyone. Thanks for everything, Katie.

Great job!

Thank you to Katie for arranging several activities and stays for us! She arranged a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon, float trip down the Little Colorado River, a stay in Atlanta for BB&T Atlanta Open Tennis Tournament and a relaxing stay in a vacation rental home in Steinhatchee FL. Katie was patient, helpful and efficient. All our travel went smoothly.

Our most recent trip to Australia/New Zealand was the trip of a lifetime. Katie knew that we were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and she made sure that every detail was planned perfectly. She selected Hamilton Island as a destination close to Great Barrier Reef. The resort, Qualia, was outstanding.  She is always courteous and prompt in responding when we have questions. 

Perfect 2nd honeymoon

Katie helped us plan our 25th wedding anniversary trip to Mexico, Riviera Maya. She listened to every detail of what we wanted and recommended the perfect destination and all inclusive resort for what we wanted. She met with us 3 times to confirm we were choosing the right trip and that we were completely comfortable with traveling abroad and all that entailed. We cant say enough about Katie and her confident personality and her knowledge of this area. We will use Katie again and know that our trip will be perfect! Sam&Susan

Katie was awesome! I was planning a surprise birthday trip for my husband and she found exactly what I was looking for! We couldn't have picked a better option! The resort was everything we were looking for and a place that we would visit again. Her knowledge and expertise made planning this vacation a breeze!

Very easy. Katie was able to find a tour company and itinerary that worked for us. Everyone who helped us, from the start of our trip, until our departure, were excellent. It was a trip of a lifetime and I’m very happy with the help and advice that Katie provided.

River Cruise

We have worked with Katie for several years. She knows our likes and dislikes which makes planning for trips less stressful. She is not afraid to suggest side tours that she thinks we would enjoy. This has resulted in experiences we would have never thought of. She has been very reliable.

Great Travel Agent

Always a pleasure working with Katie. She has spent time getting to know us over the years. Consequently, our trips are always wonderful. With this particular trip, Katie booked us in an outstanding hotel for our pre-cruise days. We were provided with a number of perks. Katie worked with us to find the perfect itinerary for the cruise. We wanted to visit Switzerland, Germany and Austria. Not many European river cruises that travel to just these countries but we found one with Katie's assistance. Katie is very efficient and personable. She always provides the correct level of guidance and best of all she is more than willing to answer all of our (sometimes silly) questions. We would recommend Katie to all interested travelers looking for a great experience.

The best! This was a very multiple activity program. First a cruise on Uniworld on the Danube, then a visit to Krakow and the "grand finale" with our 45th Wedding anniversary in Paris. We traveled over a 3 week period. All segments went flawless. Katie's suggestions and planning made the trip perfect.
