My Background

Karen is our new Premier Aussie Specialist! This prestigious designation has only been assigned to a handful of agents in Canada and indicates being recognized by the Australian industry as a superior performer in selling travel to Australia and an ambassador of the destination. The Premier recognition makes her positioned well to sell Australia, clearly highlighting her in-depth knowledge and experience.

Since growing up on a farm in Central Australia, Karen has travelled to over 50 countries, including extensive adventures in Central and South America and her homeland in the South Pacific. She cruised the Galapagos Islands, canoed through the Amazon rainforest, hiked the Inca Trail, took a flight over the Nazca lines, summited Huayna Potosi at over 6000m, scuba dived the Atlantic ocean and salsa’ed the nights away during her year in Latin America. While Latin America stole her heart, Australia the ‘sunburnt country’ and New Zealand are where her roots remain!

Living and working in England, Scotland and Ireland gave her a great base for her travels across Central and Eastern Europe. On a trip to the Middle East, she learned to play backgammon with the locals in Syria, and explored the ancient cities and ruins of the area. After visiting six of the seven continents (all except Antartica), she has developed a profound appreciation for new cultures, exotic foods, and all that is travel. She has worked with an outdoor adventure company, and as a travel advisor, partnering with thousands of clients to create trips that exceed what they even thought was possible. Now a resident of Canada, she recalls Latin culture as the hardest to leave behind, and has a special passion for South America and the South Pacific region.

Karen made my bucket list trip a beautiful reality

I'm so glad that I entrusted the planning for our Galapagos trip to Karen Schulz. Although my lifelong obsession with the Galapagos Islands was the main reason we chose Ecuador, the places and activities that Karen suggested for our tour of the mainland after the cruise turned out to be equally awe-inspiring, not to mention just plain fun. Karen attended to every detail of the trip, which meant we were able to fully immerse ourselves in the experience and enjoy it to the fullest.
