About Me:

For much of my adult life, I was an avid traveler who dreamed about a career in travel, but didn’t pursue it because I was busy with my corporate job and my family. That is, until I had to quit my job to take care of my elderly parents. During that time, I realized that life was too short to not follow my passion! I started my journey as a travel consultant in August of 2012 and haven’t looked back! Who Are My Clients? Families, Small Groups, Honeymooners and Retirees looking to fulfill their bucket list. What is My Specialty? I have the capability to plan just about any type of trip anywhere in the world but specialize in custom-designed trips to Europe. Why Is Travel Planning Your Passion? It is an honor to help people create unforgettable memories through travel while they recharge and reconnect with one another. When Do They Need My Help? I help when people are too busy to plan, are overwhelmed by choices or when the journey is too complicated to do on their own.

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:

My fascination with travel began while growing up in Venezuela and Thailand. As a member of the Bangkok Aquatic swim team, I traveled throughout Europe and the Far East with my family, falling in love with cities such as Athens, Rome, and Vienna. After a career in customer relations and logistics, I launched my career as a travel advisor, and have found true passion in helping my clients immerse themselves in local culture. My goal is to make sure my clients’ trips are the right fit for them. I enjoy booking travel to New Zealand and Spain, and travel often to Prague, where my daughter is a teacher. I’ve cruised Sydney Harbour in Australia, explored both islands of New Zealand, toured Italy with my three daughters during the Xmas holidays, attended Easter Mass in the Cordoba Mosque-Cathedral in Spain, and driven the northern coast of Ireland from Galway to Dublin. I’ve been lucky to experience several trips of a lifetime, and my goal is to create similar experiences for my clients!

About Me:

I was born in Turkey, and have offices in both Istanbul and Naperville/Chicago, Illinois. I’m a destination specialist for Turkey and India, where I lived for several months in 2007 and 2008. I created the Maharajas Secret Places program, and through my on-site connections in northern India, I’ve helped my clients visit palaces, dine with the Maharaja’s , go on camel safaris, and take exclusive, behind-the-scenes tours of the area’s museums, jewelry, and sari shops.

I also love traveling to Morocco, Greece, Egypt, and the U.S. Some special touches I’ve arranged for my clients in those areas have included surprise helicopter rides over the Sahara Desert and a private yacht tour through the Greek Isles.
