Hi there, fellow explorers! My love for travel was kindled over 20 years ago during my first cruise, and I've been on a thrilling journey of discovery ever since. With my husband and family by my side, we've embraced tropical getaways and explored the beauty of America.


It was during the planning of a family trip to Disney World that I realized I could turn my passion for travel into something extraordinary for others. That's when my adventure in the travel industry began.


Today, my focus is on making your travel dreams come true. Whether you're yearning for a personalized European adventure, an unforgettable multi-generational trip, or an exclusive experience with a special interest group, I'm here to create your dream escape. Be it sports teams, wine enthusiasts, food lovers, student groups, or hobbyists, I've got you covered!


As a Hawaii and Alaska Destination Specialist, I'm passionate about beach destinations exploring the landscapes of America. I'm well-versed in ocean and river cruising with certifications from Royal Caribbean, Norwegian Cruise Lines, and AmaWaterways. My curiosity also extends to Europe having crafted custom itineraries spanning Barcelona, to Paris, to Venice, and even a ride on the Glacier Express.


I listen intently to your wishes and desires, shaping your ideal vacation as if it were my very own. So, whether you're planning a romantic getaway, a family adventure, or an exciting group excursion, I'm dedicated to making your journey truly personal and unforgettable. Let's embark on this adventure together!

Relaxing and Fun Family Vacation w/ Small Children
Kelli was knowledgable, organized, punctual and professional. Kelli helped us determine the best value and location for our family vacation. In the end, we thoroughly enjoyed our vacation and Kelli made it a breeze to decide on and book a location. There are so many reviews and options for travel these days that I often fall into a pit of over-analyzing and decision paralysis. Kelli saved me from that and we finally went on our relaxing vacation with our three young children. We made the best family memories!
