I have a true passion for travel, especially to Europe.  For over 30 years, I have been fortunate to make clients' travel dreams a reality.

I've since been to the UK (17 times!), France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Turkey, Tangier, Kenya, Tanzania, India, South Korea, Ecuador, Mexico, Grand Cayman, the Bahamas, Hawaii and more.  High on my travel bucket list - Iceland, South Africa, Croatia and St Petersburg.  

Education is important and I am constantly learning - by course work and familiarization trips.  I am a Results!

Honeymoon Bliss!
¡Hola! We've just returned from seven days in the champagne sands and azure waters at the all-inclusive resort of Excellence El Carmen in the Dominican Republic for our honeymoon! Working with Kim Tripp with Travel By Pathfinders was truly excellent throughout the pandemic, with the many rescheduling issues and cancellations we had to make over the last 2 years. We found a dedicated advisor who is always quick to respond and sort out any issues in order to make our honeymoon a truly memorable and special getaway. Kim worked efficiently and professionally to find us exactly what we wanted and more, even through the difficulties of the past year. I can’t wait to book our next trip with Kim at Travel By Pathfinders!
