Katie’s immediate love affair with the African safari experience allows her to help create a memorable experience for you, whether it be a family multi-generational safari, or a romantic wedding and honeymoon experience, or to create an experience for the single traveler looking for their first safari adventure experience. Katie loves to plan safari experiences that help to recapture the romance and ambience of a bygone era.

Katie’s career in the travel industry began in 1987 when she worked as a corporate agent. After a ten year hiatus to focus on raising her family, Katie returned to her travel career in the leisure department, which suits her perfectly. Driven by her love for creating ‘wow!’ moments among families and friends while traveling, Katie recognizes the unique bonding power of travel experiences.

Katie’s adventures have taken her around the world from Australia to Italy, Las Vegas to London, California to the Caribbean and so many places in between. Katie’s most memorable trips include Norway, Morocco and South Africa. Katie describes Morocco as a beautiful blend of timeworn traditions combined with modern lifestyles. There she explored 9th century medinas and visited with artisans crafting mosaic tiles and textiles in the same manner of their ancestors. She further recounts its peaceful and welcoming ambiance and incredible food. In contrast, Norway stands out in her memory for its stunning natural landscape, creating a feeling of stepping into a fairytale. Similarly, Katie loved her time in South Africa for its transformative environment where the beauty and intricacies of nature surprise and captivate you at every turn.

Katie counts Morocco and South Africa among her specialties, which also include Costa Rica and the Galapagos Islands. The most precious souvenirs are always memories, but Katie loves to sample and bring home chocolate from everywhere she visits. When she is not working hard crafting dream trips for her clients, Katie can be found volunteering and cheering on her three children at swim meets.
