My Background

Kiki is an adventurer at heart! Growing up living abroad and traveling the world has fueled a passion in her to create these experiences for her family, friends and clients. She believes that the best experiences can create truly life long memories that can help define families. Kiki approaches each trip with a highly collaborative and customized planning process to meet the unique needs of each client. Kiki has personally experienced a multitude of different trip types…from family spring breaks to romantic getaways, couples weekends, and even multi-generational bucket list trips.

Kiki believes that her love of travel comes alive when she is planning trips…it’s the customization that turns a good trip into a lifelong memory. Travel today can be challenging, but though her vast network and global connections Kiki is able to match her clients with the finest hotels, resorts, cruise lines and tour companies to meet their needs all while finding the best value. Kiki approaches travel planning well beyond simply booking a hotel. Her desire is to work closely with her clients to design the perfect trip, implement their vision and share valuable information that will get them excited. Her clients are delighted while traveling by room upgrades, complimentary breakfast and extra value-added amenities. Beyond this, the ultimate benefit Kiki provides is in helping clients imagine what is possible and explore destinations they may have not knows about otherwise.

Kiki currently lives in Frisco, Texas and is originally from Chicago, Illinois. She grew up in a global household traveling the world while living in Frankfurt, Germany and Tokyo, Japan where she graduated from High School at the American School. From there, she attended college at Chapman University in Orange County, California. Kiki is married with two children. In her free time, she loves to travel, play tennis, golf and spend time with her family outdoors. Both of her children are very active with her daughter as a competitive dancer and her son as a tennis player and golfer.

Kiki’s professional life has always focused on one thing…delighting her clients. She began her career in Telecommunications sales and has also worked as a Real Estate agent and philanthropist. She and her family have moved within the U.S. multiple times while supporting her husband’s career. With Kiki now focusing on her true passion of travel, she looks forward to continuing what she does best…delighting her clients.

Had the best time in Grand Cayman. We were upgraded upon arrival and loved it. The hotel staff was very accommodating and helpful. Thanks Kiki for a great vacation. Can't wait to plan our next Spring Break.

Kiki recently planned our family vacation to Dorado Beach. To say she took care of every detail is an understatement. We were treated like royalty when we checked in thanks to Kiki. She had so many special touches waiting for us including a framed picture of my family in the room when we checked in. I've never used a travel specialist to plan my trips in the past but I will NEVER plan a trip without Kiki ever again!!

Thanks Kiki!

We just returned from the Ritz Reserve in Dorado Beach and it was an amazing trip. The property is stunning and thanks to Kiki we enjoyed an upgrade to a magnificent one bedroom suite merely steps from the ocean...and with it's own full sized pool! We were treated like VIPs the entire time because of her advance work with the hotel prior to our arrival. The entire week was unforgettable and I appreciate everything Kiki did to make sure we were comfortable the entire time! Thank you again! West

What an amazing night trip we had! Kiki helped so much planning offering well detailed options to help us make decisions. She helped us plan what to do in the area. We were so unsure what to do, and she stepped in and filled that gap so well. Can't thank her enough for everything!

Attentive and Professional

Thorough, attentive, professional. Best adjectives to describe the service and support we received from Kiki. She was always attentive to our plans and looked to shape/customize our trip based on those desires. The lodging, ground transportation and tour service was exemplary. Could not have been better!! Her attention to detail along with the expert services made our experience one of the best ever in Italy.

Hong Kong

Kiki was very efficient and easy to work with. My husband and I were travelling to Hong Kong and wanted to stay at the Four Seasons. An offer had just expired at the hotel so Kiki got in touch with her contact there to see if they could extend the offer to us even though it had expired. They did! It was a great trip. Thank you Kiki!!

First Class Weekend!

My family and I went to the Ritz Carlton in Cancun. Kiki suggested we pay a bit more and stay on the Club Level because they have 5 servings per day and cocktails. WOW!!! It was worth it. She also suggested great local restaurants. Thanks Kiki for a great long weekend vacation.

She was great. She handled all of our plans and coordination between 2 families beautifully. Unfortunately, due to family health issues and unknown schedules, we had to cancel our trip. She also handled that for us very efficiently.

We have worked with Kiki on multiple trips over the past few years. In addition to making our reservations, she requests little extras at the hotel that make our stay special! We always end up with some delicious dessert, or champagne. Kiki makes us feel like valued clients.
