Specializing in Fun Family Travel For All

I became a Travel Advisor because of one very simple fact: I LOVE TO TRAVEL WITH MY FAMILY. I have always enjoyed researching a new destination, planning the schedule details and finding the perfect match for whatever type of experience we are looking for.

As a wife and mom to 3 tween girls, I understand all too well the challenges facing families on a daily basis. It is so difficult to unplug and just appreciate the world and the people around us, to step away from the daily grind of homework, sports, activities and work and just be present in the moment. What better way to escape the business of busy-ness and truly bond with your loved ones than by experiencing the world together?

I am also aware that families come in all forms, which is why I want to help single parents navigate the complexities of travel, LBGTQ families find welcoming places to visit and help parents of children with physical and neurological challenges find an adventure that is not only manageable, but exciting! My background in educational Occupational Therapy and my Certified Autism Travel Professional status are particularly useful when it comes to understanding the needs of this particular group of families.

There are no words to explain the unparalled joy I feel when I witness the smiles on my girls' faces when they visit a puppy adoption center in Turks and Caicos, their bravery while parasailing over the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean Sea, the genuine giggles on an exciting theme park ride, their teamwork while river rafting, or the curiosity and interest while engaging with people from backgrounds so very different from theirs.

It is my honor to help other families build these types of experiences with their families. I want to help build these types of memories for YOUR family!

Best vacation of our lives

Reviewed By Tim and Dee - Bristol Rhode Island | Traveled to Grand Canyon ~ Arizona ~ USA
She was unbelievable planning out the absolute best vacation of our lives. Going over and above even giving us a backpack full of extras to make sure we would love our trip. She kept us updated and well informed of any changes weather it was the airlines or the itinerary making us as comfortable as possible right up the day of our departure. Upon our return she once again was on top of her game by checking in with us to make sure everything went smoothly and that we enjoyed ourselves. Never had that happen before, usually once on vacation we would never here from the travel agent again. This showed me that she really cares for the people she is working for.

Family Vacation

Reviewed By Jordan Roderick - New Bedford , Massachusetts | Traveled to Orlando ~ Florida ~ USA
We had been wanting to go to Universal for a few years now and without Kelly booking everything would have been very stressful. She made everything so much easier for my family of 6 . She is very professional and if she didnt know the answer to a question (which we had a ton of ) she got it and gave us more info then we could have asked for. I was very happy with how every part of our trip she was involved with went as smoothly as possible.

The Perfect Vacation

Reviewed By Bella - Massachusetts | Traveled to Bermuda ~ Caribbean
Kelly went above and beyond in booking our first cruise on Norwegian from Boston to Bermuda. This trip was a gift for my mother so I really wanted it to be special. At first, I tried looking online for different options but I was not sure of the best way to travel. I consulted with Kelly. She helped me explore exactly what I wanted and provided me with a few different options and pricing. We decided on the cruise from Boston. It was going to be our first cruise. Kelly helped us understand the ship, room categories, different packages, pricing, gratuities, etc. She provided us with reviews of the most popular excursions and booked them for us. Throughout this process I had many questions and concerns. Kelly was extremely patient and knowledgeable. She was always made me feel like I was her priority by taking the time to address every question and concern. Our Cruise was AMAZING! We had such a memorable time. Everything was PERFECT thanks to Kelly. I highly recommend her.

AMAZING tropical vacation for the family!

Reviewed By Marny Kindness - Warren, RI | Traveled to Bahamas ~ Caribbean
When my family and I started planning a vacation, we knew we wanted to go somewhere fun and tropical with something for the whole family, but didn’t know where to start. I was referred to Kelly by a friend. Kelly is amazing! Friendly, helpful and extremely responsive. There were so many conversations narrowing down our trip details, and she is patient and helpful. I also loved the level of detail she gave to our trip, specifically customizing it to fit the needs of each of our family members. You can tell there was research and thought put into each part of the trip planning. Kelly sent us cheerful emails leading up to our trip to build the excitement. She was also helpful and quickly responsive to handle some last minute questions even on the day we were leaving. Leave the worry behind and let Anchors Away do all the heavy lifting so you can think about the fun stuff. Kelly is thorough, helpful, thoughtful, friendly and I will absolutely recommend her and Anchors Away to anyone!
