You can say the travel industry and hospitality is in my blood. I come from a long line of family members who have worked in travel, which started with my Grandfather working with New York Central Railroad. After that came my parents, aunts, uncles and siblings working for airlines, resorts, cruise lines and travel agencies. It was only natural for me to follow in the family business.
I earned a degree in Hospitality Management with an emphasis in Travel & Tourism from San Jose State University. Since then I have worked in many areas of Hospitality over the last 25 years. Including an internship with the Disney College Program.
I am thrilled to now own my agency and pass on my knowledge, expertise and passion for travel to my clients. Thank you for your interest in my services. I look forward to working with you.

Absolutely incredible service. Kristi planned and managed every facet of my vacation so perfectly, that everything was buttery smooth for me and my family. I cannot recommend her and The Unique Traveler enough. Please hire them for your next vacation! You will not regret it.
There is no one better! Kristi has planned three major trips for our family. One was a trip to Ireland and England for all 13 of us... Grandma and Grandpa, our children, their spouses, and 7 grandchildren (the youngest being 2 years old.) Kristi managed people flying at different times, found perfect places for us to stay, arranged for a bus that stayed with us for 10 days in Ireland, and booked lots of activities. It was a complicated, epic trip of a lifetime and came off without a hitch - thanks to her perfect planning. The second was a trip to Italy, Croatia and Greece. We really gave her a challenge as we met up with family for part of the trip. Again her planning and attention to detail was flawless. The third trip was this past May when we spent 3 weeks in Switzerland. Some personal happenings caused us to have to ask Kristi to change things several times.... all done efficiently and patiently. The bottom line is that I would never consider using anyone else to plan our travels. She is the best!
We will NOT travel without Kristi! We always know we're getting the most value for our dollar when she puts together a vacation plan for us. And if something goes sideways with a vendor or a flight, Kristi knows the solution. She's professional, helpful and knowledgeable. I cannot recommend her enough!
Kristi was wonderful to work with when planning our trip to Italy. She was very familiar with Italy as she has been on more than one occastion. She shared her personal experiences which were very helpful (train system(s), flights, excursions, tours, culture, food). I loved the app she developed for us, so that when we were there, our daily itinerary was available with confirmation numbers, phone numbers, and other useful information. Kristi was also very responsive when I had questions that popped up during the planning process. We even had an issue while in Italy with a train cancellation, and when I sent her a message she reposnded back promptly, guiding us through a somewhat stressful situation. The amount Kristi charges which is VERY reasonable, is worth every penny as it provides peace of mind when traveling to a place you have never been. Thank you Kristi, you will be my forever travel consultant.
