My Background

You will find me exploring the world to check out wonderful, unique experiences and charming hotels and resorts.....fun for me to explore but also educational information to bring back to my clients. Being outdoors whether hiking, biking or just sitting by a river, mountain or the beach are my passions. However, I still can find great shopping bargains, study architecture, visit museums and enjoy theater and dance in any major city of the world!

The joy of travel started in my childhood. My parents took us to many foreign destinations so I carried this over to a wonderful career in travel for over 30 years!

I specialize in custom, one-of-a-kind trips worldwide with an emphasis on adventure, spa, and ski journeys.  My goal is to exceed my clients’ expectations by making their trip exciting and special based on their interests and budget.

I have been so fortunate to be selected by Travel + Leisure Magazine since 2003 as one of their top 125 A- List Travel Advisors. I will always strive to make your trips extra special.

Looking forward to creating magic for you!

Beyond Magical

By: Margaret

Reviewed on: 20 Sep 2013

Karen truly seems to have magical abilities to ensure a perfect trip. She does more than take care of every detail. Karen treats you like royalty and makes sure that everyone she books you with does the same. What's more, she is personally responsive to every email and call.

Not Recommended

Avoid her

By: Cabinman

Reviewed on: 11 Oct 2013

She is about the worst travel agent we have used. Anything that goes wrong is not her fault, she is impersonal, does not admit to what she does not know, does not provide the service and follow-up for which she amply charges. However, she is efficient and does follow through on the details she arranges. We will not use her again.
