Who we are...

Kathleen O'Connell

Travel Advisor

I have been a leisure travel agent for just under 9 years and have loved it every day since the day I started. I have been named an "A-List Agent" by Travel & Leisure Magazine, "Top 30 Under 30" Agent by Travel Agent Magazine, and I am a Signature Travel Network "Signature Expert" as well.

No matter how long the journey, there is nothing like stepping off a plane in a new country. I've traveled extensively - some of the places I have been include Canada, Hawaii, Mexico, St Maarten, Puerto Rico, St Thomas, Turks and Caicos, Italy, Spain, Vienna, Germany, Russia, Dubai, India, Japan, Australia, and South Africa. I've made many amazing memories, but one favorite was taking a yacht out on a perfect day and snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef. Afterward, a helicopter picked us up on the yacht and flew us to our own island for a private champagne lunch.

I would encourage new clients to contact me because I know the best geographical travel routing so that travelers make the most of their time in each location, maximizing their vacation. With my experience and connections, I have access to perks, special rates, and experiences most people would not otherwise know about. Primarily, I am my clients' first phone call for every question (no matter how small), every change they may want to make, or any issues that may come up prior to or during travel. I make myself available 24/7 for the duration of the trip. No two people are alike and I take that into strong consideration when we first speak or meet to plan a trip. The art to planning leisure travel is that I can customize it entirely to your taste. The more I learn about your tastes, passions, hobbies, and reasons for visiting a destination, the more perfectly I can plan a trip that create memories to last a lifetime.
