Hi! I'm Katie- lover of summer, sunshine, plants and absolutely terrified of flying.  


I live in a suburb of Madison, Wisconsin with my husband, Drew, our dog, Tucker, and three young boys. When I'm not working you can find me relaxing with a good book or taking a yoga class.   


Maybe the harsh cold winters are what draws me to the tropical paradise this planet offers…or maybe it just runs in my blood. Ever since I can remember, I have been drawn to the crystal-clear turquoise waters and white sand beaches of the world. To my delight when I was in high school, my parents planned a family trip to Hawai’i. I remember staring at the beautiful blue waters of Waikiki beach for hours not believing how something could look JUST like the picture. I mean, I had never seen any water that shade of blue before. A short time later, my future husband and I made it to the Caribbean where we eventually got engaged (Punta Cana), married (Bahamas) and honeymooned (Mexico). Whenever our time (and wallet) allow, we are planning trips to the Caribbean.


​I started Heart of the Caribbean out of a passion for planning beach vacations. I became a certified travel agent the summer of 2017 and have NEVER looked back (well, besides when COVID struck, of course).​My favorite aspect of working with clients is when they realize their DREAMS of traveling somewhere is becoming a REALITY. ​I look forward to working with you and helping you check one more place off your bucket list.
