Advisor - Katie McAvoy


Destination daydreamer and family CEO (chauffeur, entertainment concierge and organizer) for three boys and a dog. I love Chicago, live music, books, pasta, nature and feelings of discovery.

Home airports

ORD primarily, MDW when Southwest is best.

My travel style

I love the feeling of discovery when traveling. I enjoy adventure travel, national parks, scuba/ snorkeling followed by a relaxing hot tub or cocktail.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Snorkeling and waterfall swimming in Maui.

  • Riding everything at every Disney World park.

  • Relaxing on the beach at a Mexico all-inclusive.

  • RVing through Yellowstone, Grand Teton and RMNP with my sister and our families.

Dreaming of:

  • Tanzania, then back to Chobe in Botswana.

  • Geeking out on evolution in the Galapagos Islands.

  • Surfing and ziplining in Costa Rica.

  • Seeing the Northern Lights in Iceland.

One thing I can't travel without...

A great playlist.

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I swam with sharks, and a bleeding dive buddy, in the Great Barrier Reef.

  2. I wrote a book about our honeymoon in Africa.

  3. I backpacked solo through Southeast Asia, when internet cafes were a necessary thing.
