About Me:

As an RN turned travel advisor and with over 40 years of traveling as a military dependent, I have developed a passion not only for travel but to help others plan their own expeditions to new and exciting destinations. I have lived in Canada, multiple states within the USA, Germany, Cambridge England, Ville Franche, France, and South Korea, and have traveled far beyond each of these destinations while living abroad. While living in South Korea, I coordinated China trips for groups while running an export business from Beijing. While living in Germany,England, and Korea my travels were extensive. Once back in the USA I continued to help arrange private customized tours to Beijing China, as well as assisting families with Disney vacations, ‘Land and Sea’. As a part of the Covington Travel family I have been honored to orchestrate travel for clients to exciting destinations like Hawaii, the Caribbean, Alaskan cruisetours, everything Disney, Costa Rica, Scotland, Poland, France, England and beyond. I am honored to have joined the team at Covington Travel and assist clients with their upcoming travel plans near and far.

About Me:

I love developing customized itineraries for my clients to the far reaches of the world.  I believe travel is  a catalyst for growth.  The interaction and connection with different cultures, cuisines, places and people opens our minds and our hearts to our human similarities.  My life is enhanced through my travel experiences and the travel experiences of my clients.

Sustainable travel is a specialty of mine.  Before I started my travel business, I worked as a civil engineer specializing in water projects for 20 years.  I actively study sustainability and seek out sustainable and environmentally conscious travel experiences.  My intention is to deliver a high end travel experience with a low ecological footprint.

I use a collaborative travel planning process.  The travel planning process begins with me listening to my clients and understanding their travel objectives. As I learn and understand their travel style, preferences and passions, we will collaborate on their trip. Based on our collaboration, I will design their trip itinerary and handle all of the logistics. I have a vast network of travel industry relationships that I utilize while designing travel. I am available to my clients before, during and after their travels. After my clients have traveled, I will be in touch to hear how they enjoyed your trip and apply what I learn from your feedback to future trips.

 

Client Testimonials

Keely is amazing! Our trip to San Francisco for my family could not have been more special. There is no doubt in my mind that Keely is the reason for this. From start to finish she was knowledgeable, accessible, and professional. I cannot wait to take another vacation and have Keely plan it for me.
– Wayne Westerfield
We never want to travel without Keely’s help again!! We loved every detail and all of Keely’s recommendations!

About Me:
I combine my passion for discovering off-the-beaten-path adventure with the vast network of Virtuoso suppliers to create unique and memorable itineraries for my clients. My goal for every trip I plan is to ensure that the client gets the best value for their time and money. My favorite type of vacation is exploring urban cities and local villages on foot or by bicycle to get a feel for local culture. I firmly believe that travel is essential for personal growth and that “the world is a book; those who don’t travel read only a page.”

My most recent trips include Iceland, Seattle, and Toronto.

 

Client Testimonials

Ellie at Covington Travel is amazing!! She created a phenomenal European adventure for my family, on a budget and with short notice. This organization is a pleasure to work with! They also beat any pricing I found on the many online services I researched. We had the peace of mind that we would have everything we needed in both our accommodations and travel. -Karen J., reviewed on Facebook, May 31, 2017

About Me:

Born and raised behind the Redwood Curtain of Northern California, I spent my childhood playing in the natural beauty that is synonymous with Northern California. As the middle of 5 kids, my family was not able to travel a lot. As I got older, I was able to venture out to places like Hawaii, New Zealand, Germany and Mexico.

I started working in the travel industry in 1999 at a local travel agency in my hometown of Eureka, California. I moved to Colorado in 2007 and in 2010 as the economy improved, found myself in retail travel again. At the end of 2016, I made the decision to join The Travel Society to allow more quality time with my young daughter.

I currently live in Englewood, Colorado with my spouse and our combined family of four. When we aren’t working on renovating our house, we enjoy road trips, exploring new places and geocaching.

While I love to travel, I truly enjoy helping my clients cross of another item on their bucket list.

About Me:

My bucket-list is always full. Every time I travel to a new destination there is always someplace, somewhere, something new and that I can’t wait to see and experience next.

I have 5 years’ experience selling travel and have been a traveler myself since I was young. My experience has ranged between small mom & pop agencies to big named travel corporations, all the while ensuring that my customers and clients travel needs and wishes are met. I have finally come to the conclusion that to truly give my clients the bespoke travel plans that they need, I must strike out on my own to truly meet my client’s needs. I love to make a connection with my clients, hear their travel stories, and make new memories with them. I have an insatiable yearning to see the world that fuels my own wanderlust. Let me help you with your next travel adventure

About Me:

“Choose a job you love and you will never work a day in your life.” To be the best in this business one must have passion. When you partner passion with door-opening relationships and strong “value-adding” partnerships the capabilities become endless. The result is empowering. My passion is simple: Travel. The most rewarding aspect of my job is to successfully define each clients’ adventure and its coinciding luxury and then securing it at the best possible price with the most added value. My specialty is you. I look forward to making your trip the adventure you dream it to be!

Client Testimonials:

“So Meg, we are your customers for life!  In one word – phenomenal.  Curious what exactly you told them about us…for us to get such  royal treatment! ” – Juliet

” Thank you so much for being part of my birthday celebration. The dessert was decadent, chocolate mousse, ridge of dark chocolate fudge, and Oreo crumbles. Delicious!  Meg, over the years you have helped to provide Dan and I with the most amazing adventures. I want to send you a huge…THANK YOU for enriching our lives.”  – Penny

” This trip was one of the single best things that any of us have ever done, and we largely have you to thank for it.  I really appreciate everything you did to help us make this happen.   Thanks so much for putting up with my questions and worries and credit card swaps.  I really appreciate your patience with my total lack of experience.  When we got there, we realized pretty quickly just how streamlined the whole experience is, and we really had nothing to worry about from the moment we walked off the airplane.  Thanks for hooking us up with such a wonderful experience.  I’ll be referring all of my friends your way!  Thanks again.  We’ll definitely call you when it’s time to go back!”   -Jeremiah
