President, Senior Travel Advisor
Kari is a wealth of travel knowledge. Being in the industry for over 30 years and recently adding another business location, it’s easy to see why! Just sitting down with her and talking about travel dreams opens up so many possibilities. That’s why Kari feels it is so important to really get to know her clients. Her talent lies in listening and learning about client travel styles, tastes, and preferences. With that knowledge, Kari is able to craft amazing, one-of-a-kind experiences – tailored for each traveler.
Her words of advice: Never critique a destination until you have been there at least 24 hours. In that time, you will find some aspect of the culture, people, cuisine, or architecture that you will fall in love with. That is the secret to successful traveling!
Whether she is abroad with her family or escorting groups of 100+ travelers, Kari loves to see the friendships that blossom from travel. There is nothing quite like the camaraderie that develops when people come together as strangers, and leave as close traveling companions!
Although there wasn’t much opportunity for her to travel as a child, Kari is now certainly well-traveled! For her, anywhere can be a favorite destination, as long as there is personal growth. Whether it is exploring the animals on the Galapagos Islands, experiencing different cultures in Cuba, to taking in the pristine beauty of Italy – you will only benefit by taking the time to explore the world!
When she is not working tirelessly in the office, you can find Kari at her summer home in Green Lake; enjoying being on the lake with friends and family.
There is nothing like seeing the joy in a client’s face or hearing it in their voice after a memorable trip! Kari lives for that experience with each person she works with. Whether it’s traveling to familiar and cherished destinations or striking out to the unknown, Kari knows how to provide each traveler with an experience quite like no other.
