It's a beautiful world & I'll help you discover it

    I started planning travel for friends when I lived in Italy. I loved studying the train schedules and finding new places for my friends to explore.  Fast forward a few years and I turned that innate passion into a career. I've been an IATAN registered travel advisor since 2002. I enjoy learning about new places and helping clients experience all this beautiful world has to offer.

    I have traveled extensively throughout Western Europe, including living in Italy.  I have also traveled to Antarctica; Australia; Beijing, China; Brazil; Bhutan; Britain; Cambodia; Canada; Cancun, Mexico; several Caribbean islands; Costa Rica, Cuba; Greenland; Iceland; Ireland; Israel; Japan; Kenya; New Zealand; Norway; Scotland; Thailand; Uganda; and various locations within the United States.  One of my greatest achievements is reaching my goal of visiting all 7 continents before I turned 40!

    I live in Edmond, Oklahoma and work on air reservations, bespoke experiences, cruise reservations, independent and guided tours, all inclusive resort vacations, group travel, and missionary travel requests. 

  My commitment is to provide you with exceptional customer service so your travel dreams become an experience you’ll never forget.

My Travel Stories

A Short Getaway in Costa Rica

Costa Rica was a fun and fast getaway.

The flights from OKC where pretty straightforward with United, which made the long weekend work better, giving us more time to spend on the ground.

We enjoyed time in Canaan (be sure to visit the Casa Alegría mariposario when you’re there), touring...Read more.

I never thought I needed a travel agent until...
Katie was super helpful and professional. In a time of crisis, she helped us find the best option for our safe return from Africa, helped us book ongoing flights, hotel rooms, etc. Her follow up was especially helpful in a time when we had so many things happening at once that we weren't always thinking clearly. She took a huge burden off of our shoulders.

Our Go-To Agent!
Katie has helped us with many trips over the year, both business and pleasure. She is courteous and prompt. She works hard to get exactly what we want from the trip, sometimes working late hours to do so. Katie is our go-to girl, and it's always a pleasure to work with her.

Excellent trip as always.
Katie Hartman has been helping us plan furlough trips from Brazil, around the USA and back to Brazil for many years. We just contact her on email with the dates and places we are thinking about, and she does the rest. She always gets us the best prices, offers options to choose from, provides all the details we need to know and makes planning and payment for the trip easy. As our trip progresses over a three month furlough, she alerts us to changes in schedules and verifies that all is going according to plan. She is kind, loving and generous with her time. Thank you Katie for going the extra mile for us. We appreciate you so much. Alan and Ree - missionaries in Brazil
