Sustainable and Adventure Travel Specialist

I have been in the travel industry for 5 years, but I have been committed to sustainability since I was a child.

I believe travel is the most important activity a person can do--not only for themselves, but for the greater good!  But if we aren't committed to sustainability when we travel, all the benefits of travel are negated.

That's why when I plan and book trips, you know you're not only getting a quality, memorable trip, you're also traveling in the most eco- and socially friendly way they desire!

I am proud member of ASTA and have recently earned my Certified Travel Associate designation.  I am also a Recognized Viking Travel Agent and Costa Rica Specialist, as well as having completed several supplier trainings including Hurtigruten and G Adventures.

I can't wait to help you plan and book every aspect of your sustainable vacation!  What are you waiting for?  Get out there and go!

"We have just returned from a trip Kelsey arranged for us to the Dominican Republic. It was a Fathom Impact Travel cruise on the Adonia to the Dominican Republic. It was wonderful, we had a fabulous time! Kelsey did a great job putting this trip together for us. I usually do it all myself and now I'm wondering WHY?"  Jaci W.

"We have no complaints at all Kelsey. All transports and trip details were exactly the way you described them. Because of this, we were never stressed. Thank you so much!"  Shannon C.

"Thank you again so much for planning an awesome trip for me and my family. We will absolutely keep your info and pass it along to anyone we know of in the future as well as use you again for our future trips!" Devon C.

Excellent Peru Honeymoon

Reviewed By Mike - Lincoln, Nebraska | Traveled to Peru ~ South America
Kelsey was a great help, from start to finish. We needed help planning a honeymoon to Peru and didn't know where to start. Kelsey took the time to talk with us, figure out what we wanted, and condensed all the possibilities into a few good options that we could pick and choose from. She took into account all of the different things we were looking for and was able to keep us within our budget.

Throughout the entire process she was patient, helpful, and fun to talk to. She put together a great packet with all the information, tickets, and passes that we needed--without it, we absolutely would not have been able to do all that we needed to do. She also wrote with helpful tips about flight times during the trip, and she was available during the trip to answer questions or address a (minor) emergency.

This was my first experience using a travel agent, and it really helped the planning process. Kelsey was excellent and I would recommend her to anyone.

Travel with ease!

Reviewed By First time Euro - Lexington, Ky | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
We had never used a travel agent before, nor had we gone to Europe. This seemed like a good time to get a little help, and we were so glad we did! Kelsey made wonderful hotel and activity choices for us and really listened to what we were most interested in. The transportation she arranged was absolutely perfect, from trains between cities to water taxis and gondola in Venice and more! Something we had not thought about is that while we were in Italy, we could text Kelsey that we wanted tickets for something and they would magically appear in an email! We were nervous about being first timers abroad, but everything went smoothly and easily thanks to Kelsey's amazing help! We look forward to working with Kelsey to plan another adventure and are confident that it will be amazing and EASY!

Unforgettable!

Reviewed By Brittney - Louisville, KY | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
I wanted to give a shout out to Kelsey for all her hard work and making our trip to Italy unforgettable! We toured Italy via public transport for 3 weeks, from north to south. Her trip package had everything needed including train tickets, directions, excursions, everything. We even had an SOS luggage situation and she quickly helped us figure out a cheap fix. We share her passion for sustainability and am grateful for her unique service. Our trip would not have been the same without her. Thanks again for making it unforgettable <3
Wishing you fun and safe travels!

An amazing vacation

Reviewed By emapus - Boardman, Ohio | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
Kelsey is an amazing travel agent and friend! She helped us plan a trip that both my husband and I have wanted to do for most of our lives. She took note of everything we wanted to see and gave suggestions at our request of other activities we could do, too. Kelsey always responded in a timely manner. I recommend planning your next trip with her!

Great Honeymoon Trip

Reviewed By Melanie and Scott - Lexington, Kentucky | Traveled to Aruba ~ Caribbean
It was a pleasure working with Kelsey. She took the time to get to know our interests and planned a trip catered to what we were interested in. She was always available for any questions we had. She took the work out of planning a trip, leaving the fun part: traveling.
