My Background

As an affiliate of Brownell Travel, a Virtuoso agency, I have preferred partnerships with some of the finest properties in the world including Ritz Carlton, Four Seasons, Rosewood, Belmond and Abercrombie and Kent to name a few . When booking hotels and resorts for my clients I deliver first class service, competitive rates and value-added amenities such as upgrades upon availability, breakfast and resort credits. I always VIP my clients prior to their arrival and this translates into a warm welcome, instant recognition and privileged access.

Highly recommended

Kelly is an exceptional travel advisor!  She is perceptive, intuitive, organized, efficient, and cheerful. She knows all of our likes and dislikes and makes recommendations based on our preferences.  She is always right and I trust her completely!  We NEVER travel anywhere without her assistance!  Here are  just a few of our most divine vacations, destinations that we would have never gone to without Kelly's recommendation: Le Toiny, St. Barth's,  Blackberry Farm, Tennessee.  I can't wait for her input on our African Safari that we will be planning soon!

Kelly made going to paradise so easy. It was as if I went to heaven without having to die. I told Kelly what, when and how and she made it happen.

A Perfect Trip

By: EmAndP


Reviewed on: 18 Oct 2014

Kelly planned an extraordinary honeymoon trip to Italy for us. She expertly guided us through the planning process, listening to where we thought we wanted to go, exploring why, and then working with us to put together an itinerary that met and exceeded all of our goals. The trip we ended up with was not at all what we thought we wanted originally -- it was so, so much better. Kelly found two extraordinary hotels in the Italian countryside. One was more spectacular than the next, just our style, somehow within our budget, and nothing we ever would have been able to find on our own. The "Virtuoso" upgrades were fantastic additions everywhere we went. We've never worked with a travel agent before, and now can't imagine why not. We highly recommend Kelly.

We have really enjoyed working with Kelly. She booked fantastic stays for us in San Francisco and Vancouver, with great attention to detail for our family of four. We especially appreciate her enthusiasm to get involved in the trip planning and make sure everyone in the family has great things to do. We'll definitely be booking through Kelly again! Amy

Kelly saved our trip

By: Marc


Reviewed on: 24 Feb 2015

When a pending snow/wind storm caused our flight to be cancelled and our trip to be postponed by a day, Kelly jumped into action (on a Saturday afternoon) to get the hotel to push back our arrival date (without penalty) and get us placed on a priority wait list to extend the trip by the day we lost. She "assured" us that we would get off the wait list and get a room. Not only did we get a room, but due to Kelly, we got a great upgrade to an awesome suite and fabulous service from the hotel. Additionally, despite us having award miles flights, Kelly was offering alternative flight solutions to help us secure earlier and better flights. She stayed in contact with us thru our arrival to make sure that everything was going smoothly. Without her help, we might have just cancelled this short, 3 day, trip. Kelly not only helped save the trip, she helped make it a special getaway. Her efforts and results, exceeded our expectations!

Kelly was amazing! She took care of things before they became "things." We were booked for a 1 Bedroom/1 Bath unit at a great price - we ended up with a 2 Bedroom/2 Bath unit at the same price. This additional bedroom/bath enabled our grandson to skip sleeping on the convertible sofa, which really made the vacation so much more enjoyable.

I cannot thank Kelly enough for helping us organize our 5 days at the Ritz in San Juan! Our long-overdue vacation was immediately turned into the best vacation we could have dreamed of as soon as we walked through the doors. The perks she was able to secure (free breakfast! that lovely bottle of wine! late checkout!) made the entire stay even better than it would have been had we booked on our own. All in all it was such a fabulous week and Kelly's help was invaluable. We will certainly reach out again when we plan our next one.

Kelly was efficient and thorough in helping me plan my vacation with my children to unchartered territory, for me. She got me in touch w/ another family who'd travelled to my desired destination and I was able to ask even more questions. Kelly was thorough and always responded quickly and with an easy way about her that made me feel comfortable and confident in her ability to set me up right!

Villa in Tuscany for 30th Anniversary

By: Doug


Reviewed on: 19 Jun 2015

We had a fabulous trip and it was mostly due to the planning and execution by Kelly. She was very hands on and directed us wisely without being overbearing. The best part was the villa which she had found and was a real bargain. It was better in person than the pictures indicated, though the pictures were fine. The bathrooms were large and modern, something you do not always see in Italy. The property owner came by every day to ensure all was well and helped w some dinner bookings. We would go back to this villa in a heartbeat. Kelly also arranged our wine tour which was fantastic and the guide chose a great lunch spot. She also recommended a lunch destination for our first full day and we had a great meal/wine/service. She also arranged a walking tour in Pienza which included a cheesemaking adventure which we all loved. Overall thethe trip was first class including her hand holding with me as a nervous driver, especially the rental car drop off in Rome. Kelly was a 12 out of 10.

Fantastic advice and great choices

We found Kelly by accident through an online search and we are so glad we did. She helped us choose a resort for our adults only getaway for my husband and me. We had a wonderful stay at the resort and saved money by booking with Kelly. We definitely will use Kelly again, that is a no brainier. She is a wealth of knowledge and very friendly and patient. Thank you Kelly!!!

We needed a last minute family getaway and although I knew what we wanted I needed Kelly to help find the right combination of rooms and resort, not an easy feat considering our far flung family member's endlessly changing travel plans. Kelly was patient and unflappable despite our day to day changing plans and in the end we found the perfect solution. Thanks Kelly

The most AMAZING Honeymoon EVER!

By: C&B


Reviewed on: 15 Sep 2015

Kelly and I have always talked about planning vacations but have never pulled the trigger. Well, we got serious when it came time to plan my Honeymoon and that is when we realized that this was not going to be an ordinary trip. From day one, Kelly helped us plan our trip to Italy, putting up with us going back and forth on what we wanted to do and what we did not want to do. At the end of the day, we took her advice and we could not have been more thrilled that we did. We visited Positano for 6 nights, stayed at Punta Regina, enjoyed the beach, a private trip to Capri and more. Perfect start! We then traveled to Grosetto, where we stayed at L'Andana (the most amazing place EVER). We enjoyed the relaxing setting, the Tuscan breakfasts and vineyard visits. We then finished in Rome, staying at Hotel Eden (the service - WOW), and did a private tour of the Vatican. Can you see the trend of each place becoming more luxurious? We HIGHLY recommend Kelly, it was a DREAM come true!

This is the first time we have used Kelly or Virtuoso. I was impressed with the time that Kelly took to get to know our preferences so that she could help us plan our vacation to Anguilla and for future vacations. Dining is such a part of our experience on vacation. Her recommendations for restaurants and her help in securing reservations were greatly appreciated. She had first hand knowledge of the hotel and the island and was able to help us choose worthwhile things to do while helping us avoid less than stellar activities. We are already using her as the travel agent for our next vacation.

We just got back from a wonderful trip to Arizona. We loved the hotels and activities that Kelly planned for us. We stayed at the Enchantment in Sedona which was awesome! My husband and I loved it and our 3 young kids loved it! At Kelly's suggestion we did the Pink Jeep Broken Arrow Tour in Sedona. The views were spectacular. The kids loved off roading and going down some really big rocks in the jeep. Went to Grand Canyon and then finished up at the Scottsdale Princess. As Kelly predicted, our kids loved the pool at the Princess! Great waterslide and the property was really pretty. We loved our suite there. Great family vacation! Many thanks to Kelly for helping us to plan this great trip.

We travelled to Paris then Dresden. Kelly made hotel recommendations that were accurate and just what we wanted. She alerted the hotel management that we were arriving and they were quite welcoming.

Kelly, planned the perfect trip for my parents, my husband and I. She took into account every detail, and admittedly, I'm pretty demanding. We wanted luxurious accommodations, good food, calm beach's, safe environment...and the list goes on. She took it all into account, and truly came up with the ideal vacation spot. Not to mention the flawless instructions of navigating a tiny-charter plane into a tiny island, numerous dinner reservations, etc., etc. Truly could not recommend her more. We will be booking all vacations with Kelly from now on. Thank you so much! Cannot say enough for your patience, detailed work, quick follow-up...and really, most importantly, planning a wonderful vacation with some special perks. Thank you Kelly. Talk to you again (hopefully soon!)

We stayed at the Grand Hotel de la Minerve in Rome, arranged through Kelly. We were upgraded to a really outstanding huge room. Our breakfast which was included in the package she arranged was on the roof with gorgeous views. She also arranged for one three course dinner which was also on the rooftop and was a delicious gourmet meal. I have booked four trips this year through Kelly and every one of them has been unique and outstanding and gone flawlessly. I have now recommended her to several friends who are planning trips.

How do we begin to thank you for the truly amazing experience you planned for us? With three weeks in Peru and only the barest outline of where we wanted to go and what we like to do, you filled in the blanks and gave us the trip of a lifetime! Each day was a new adventure full of wonderful sights, people and experiences. The places we stayed were wonderful and the food in Peru was fabulous, but it was your people who put the trip over the top. The execution of the plan was flawless – everyone was prompt, knowledgeable, friendly and fun to be with. They took great care of us and eliminated all the usual stress of travel. You planned for us the perfect balance of “guided” time and independence; the hiking and biking days were perfectly suited to our age, ability and the altitude. We’re telling everyone we know!
