“I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list.”
My first experience traveling was on a trip to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. I was only 17, but it sparked a passion for exploration that continues to thrive today. I specialize in all-inclusive tours, luxury cruises, destination weddings, honeymoons, plus corporate and incentive groups. I work with my clients to find out exactly what they’re expecting from their travels, and I then create a plan that caters perfectly to their tastes and hopes. This includes finding the best cruises for families or creating itineraries for those wishing to see unique events such as Oktoberfest in Munich or the nightlife in Amsterdam. “I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list.” This is one of my favorite quotes, and it reflects my attitude towards travel perfectly. I have become entranced by the various cultures of the world, and I make it my goal to always have a trip planned before I return from my current one.
I owe a thank you to my mom who noticed my love for traveling, and suggested that I find a way to turn it into my livelihood. I enrolled in the travel program at Grant MacEwan University and graduated in 2010. After this, I took some time off to travel before working at Newwest Travel in 2011. I now have years of experience in the industry plus multiple certifications from Disney Cruise Lines, Princess Commodore, Travel Guard, and many more from specific countries and resorts. There are so many great and thriving cultures to experience in this world, and there is also an abundance of amazing history to discover. I will use my expertise to ensure that your trip is planned perfectly, and with my guidance, you will make every moment special while abroad. I am always available to help with changes or anything else that may arise during travels as well. Start exploring the world, and with my help, you will have your dream vacation expertly booked for you!
What my clients say
"Kari-Lynn helped us decide on a honeymoon location as well as booked the trip for us. She was very knowledgeable about Cuba and made us feel extremely prepared for our first trip!!"
"Thank you so much for getting my travel arrangements scheduled for me. Having you at Newwest Travel really allowed me to focus on my work portion of this trip and not the airfare and hotel, you took care of that for me."
