My Background

My passion for travel was planted at a very young age. I fondly remember taking summer road trips, driving East to West and North to South across the U.S., visiting family and friends, and seeing the sights along the way. I hope to plant those same seeds for my cgildren. Growing up in the hotel business, I spent time “helping out" in various capacities and eventually served as the hotel’s Director of Marketing, before moving to Washington, DC to pursue a Master of Business Administration. I lived and worked in DC for over a decade – traveling extensively, both for business and pleasure. My travels took me across the U.S., Europe, the Caribbean, Mexico and Canada. Now, living in Atlanta, I continue to travel with my family, as a Luxury Travel Designer.

One of my favorite things about travel is seeking out opportunities that allow total immersion into a city and its culture. As a self-proclaimed lover of amazing food and wine, I always find a way to eat and drink my way though any city, while walking it…of course! When asked to define luxury travel, I would have to say it is the best of the best: five-star accommodations, amazing food, memorable tours, fabulous shows, and the finest shopping…all customized to the client’s desire.

Travel is like a giant blank canvas, and the painting on the canvas is only limited by one’s imagination. - Ross Morley

last minute winter getaway

By: patrav1

Reviewed on: 10 Mar 2017

Keri was great - My wife and I were looking for a last minute winter break and asked Keri for help on a Friday - within a few hours of contacting her she was back to us with suggestions for a number of places in the Caribbean - she worked with us over the weekend and we had confirmed reservations in place by midday Sunday at the Kimpton Seafire in the Cayman Islands - she then followed up to be sure hotel had our arrival and departure information and reminded us to ask for the hotel's loyalty club benefits - we also were given a room upgrade when we arrived which I strongly suspect was Keri's doing - we have already had her book a Florida trip for us for next December - and have recommended her to friends and family -

Cuba - Living on the edge

By: Kevin

Reviewed on: 22 Nov 2017

Traveling to Cuba is not for the faint of heart. We needed expert advice and someone that could find the answers to hundreds of questions from a demanding group of 8 travelers. Keri was PERFECT. If she did not know the answer - she did the research and figured it out. She also went to great strides before during and after the trip to make sure everything went perfectly smooth. She even contacted the airlines to make sure everything was set for a smooth departure. If you are looking for a high touch agent - Keri will exceed your expectations.

Great Follow-Up Even After Trip

By: Colkwlink

Reviewed on: 10 Jan 2018

Keri managed all aspects of the trip, before, during, and after. As the expert on luxury travel, she provided great advice, coordinated with the hotel and made sure all aspects of the trip were well taken care of. The hotel has some billing issues, no fault of Keri's, and she immediately took action to get them resolved. Keri provide professional and thorough follow-up even after the trip.

Exceptional service from start to finish

By: NK

Reviewed on: 12 Sep 2018

I was referred to Keri by a longtime friend when I was having difficulty organizing a trip for myself and my folks using the internet as my main resource. Keri sprung into action and was able not only to organize and execute our tour reservations but got great flights at a very competitive price and within 30 days of our departure! I could not have done any of this without her help. When we had some mid-trip hotel hiccups, she was in communication with the hotel and tour provider in minutes and made sure we were happy from then on. The internet is NO SUBSTITUTE for a professional, knowledgeable and thoughtful travel agent like Keri. Her response time to emails and texts was extraordinary. I will definitely utilize Keri’s services for my next big trip.

We love working with Keri. I used to be the type A have to read every hotel review beforw picking a place, plan every trip from A to Z by myself. Now if Keri recommends it we do it. 5 trips in the past two years and she has never steered us wrong!

Perfect Honeymoon

By: Mat

Reviewed on: 03 Oct 2018

Working with Keri was extremely easy and she helped plan the perfect honeymoon for us. All we knew is that we wanted to go to Spain and we liked food. She helped us with amazing hotels (with deals and special surprises from each hotel), getting around Spain, and her top recommendations of things to do. She was always available for us when we had questions and even continued to look out for better hotels (which we greatly appreciated) that came up on her radar. She made planning our honeymoon easy and stress free. It was truly perfect and we couldn't have done it without her. We can't wait to work with her again!

Attentive to Our Needs

By: Happy Traveler

Reviewed on: 01 Oct 2018

We are glad we found Keri. She listened to our needs and wants and then worked to make that happen. She always was quick to respond to any questions we had, even a last minute request she responded to. She found us great rates on airfare and an awesome hotel as we requested at the airport. I can't say enough good stuff about Keri, so I have recommended her to our friends. She really cared about making our dream trip so much fun. Thank you Keri for all you did. We had an awesome trip to Italy and will be in touch when we plan the next adventure.

Keri was wonderful to work with, She booked 2 different set of airline tickets for me and a trip to Barcelona. She was able to change some of the plans based on my budget and made suggestions for things we could do on our own. The guide we used there was amazing and all drivers were on time, courteous and pleasant to deal with, would definitely use her again and highly recommend to anyone

Dream Peru Trip

Working with Keri was great! No drama and super responsive. She clearly understood the special needs of my family that made this different from a standard trip. Keri proposed ideas and made adjustments to our plans as I requested. I don’t think of myself as a “luxury traveler” but after this wonderful trip, I don’t know if I can ever go back to non-luxury travel!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Keri. She has planned multiple trips for my husband and me and we are blown away every time by her attention to detail. We have high standards for hotels & the rooms we stay in and she always nails it every time!
