Kelly is a storyteller, with a natural curiosity about the world.

That is what landed her in TV News. But the more time she spent off camera, the view of her surroundings has changed. Kelly is anxious to see the world and believes the best way to learn is to experience it first hand.

Kelly’s sense of wonder has led to many great adventures. She loves planning the perfect trip that combines fast-paced adventure with leisure travel. She enjoys eating and drinking her way through each destination (always ordering the chef’s recommendations). Her passion for culture and cuisine allows her to pick out the perfect place to send clients. Her goal is to visit every continent in the next five years, but she’s eager to get you there first.

Kelly believes in connecting with clients on a personal level to help plan the perfect trip for them. She uses first-hand knowledge and trusted recommendations to ensure my travelers’ experiences are stress-free, fun and exceptional from start to finish.

What’s your strategy to overcoming jet lag?

Before boarding your flight, set your clock to the time at your destination. Once you arrive, settle in to your hotel then get out! Go for a walk or run to boost your mood, energy and get the lay of the land. Do your best to stay up until at least 9 p.m. local time and try to get a good night’s sleep before you start your first full day of adventures. Don’t forget to drink lots of water!

Favorite Travel Tip

Leave room for spontaneity. Those unplanned moments are often the most memorable.

Testimonials

We had never used a travel planner before, but it took about a day of trying to plan our honeymoon on our own before we decided to bring in a professional and we're so happy we did. Every detail was taken care of and we didn't have to worry about a thing. We visited three different cities and each hotel and activity that Kelly found for us seemed to be even more amazing than the last. We never would have had the same experience planning it ourselves. Now, we even use Kelly to book hotels when we travel within the US because she knows all the best spots. We can't wait for our next trip!-Emily + Dan Gordon

Kelly has been super responsive to our travel requests. We really value her hotel relationships and the extra perks she is able to provide. She has also been creative in securing room discounts and helping maximize our travel dollars.-Hunter Walor

Kelly helped us plan an unforgettable trip to Thailand. She used her knowledge, connections, and personal experience to build a fantastic itinerary for us. We had a wonderful vacation, thanks to Kelly!-Elizabeth Fey

Planning vacations with Kelly has always been such a wonderful experience. From trips within the States to Australia- Kelly is very knowledgable about hotel options, things to do and restaurants in the areas. Kelly always gives us the inside scoop on what the locals love, not just touristy things. We love working with Kelly and can't wait to plan our next adventure with her!-Katie + William Feuerbacher
