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.

I mix exploration and relaxation. I enjoy adventure travel, national parks and scuba / snorkeling, followed by relaxing in the hot tub or with a glass of wine. I usually take kids and / or friends along!

Katie's reviews

Katie was great to work with. Listened very attentively and put together hotel and wine tasting tour options that offered a variety to chose from. Whether your travel plans are big or small, we would definitely recommend Katie for anyone looking for a travel advocate with experience.

Katie is the best

Katie was wonderful! Very attentive to our travel needs and she did tons of research to find the best fit for our family. I would highly recommend working with Katie for any/all travel plans!

Katie was a life saver for us on this trip! Having to come up with a plan B only a week before Spring Break would not have been possible without her. What could have been a very stressful experience, ended up being one of the the better travel experiences I've had due to Katie's organization and execution. We had upgraded rooms, breakfasts included in our stay and discounted rates waiting for us upon check in. Katie nailed it!
