Travel has been a passion of mine for most of my life. I caught the travel bug early when I moved with my parents from a small town in Vermont to Hawaii. That’s when I realized the enrichment of travel. After spending many years in landlocked Scottsdale, Arizona, I traded the desert for the sunny beaches of Florida for a few years. As a Wanna Get Away Travel expert, I have hopped across the Caribbean uncovering the most pristine beaches, exhilarating hiking, and ultimate resorts. I am a warm weather girl at heart, always up for an adventure, and have a knack for knowing which special details make for an unforgettable trip. The islands of the West Indies are diverse with culture, food, geography, and of course beautiful beaches. However, my expertise is not limited to the Sun and Fun of the Caribbean. I have traveled from Australia, to parts of Europe, and Central America. While based in Siesta Key Florida, in my spare time I enjoyed running beaches, surfing and scuba diving in southern Florida, as I research the next ultimate trekking trip. I have recently moved back to Scottsdale AZ. The more I learn and travel this wonderful planet and its vastness, the more I want to share this knowledge with clients. I strive to give you exactly the type of travel experience you want and deserve. From the planning stages until you return home, I am at your disposal.
I have been traveling since the age of 1 when my parents moved from India to Dubai and we traveled every summer to different places around the world including Europe, Egypt and Greece. I moved to the USA to go to college in New York and my travel bug took me all around the east coast during every break I got. Over the last 20 years my personal and corporate travel has taken me around the World to Asia, Australia, Middle East, Europe, Hawaii, Caribbean, Mexico, Alaska and 48 states in the USA. My passion for travel has only increased over time and every special occasion in life was celebrated with a trip to a new destination! I decided to become a Travel Consultant so I can share the wealth of knowledge and experience I have gathered over time and help others make beautiful memories like I have. I work with my clients lifestyle, interests, preferences & budget to customize and plan their vacation from A-Z. I strive to give every client my utmost attention to detail, research and planning the vacation of their dreams and am there for them through their trip and beyond. I specialize in Family Vacations, Cruises, Group trips, Destination Weddings, All-inclusive Resorts, Romantic Getaways and Corporate Travel. On a personal note I am a mother of 2 young children who have caught the travel bug too and have now traveled to various US and International destinations already and I am sure we will be exploring many more beautiful places in this world and creating memories!

A millennial travel agent who has worked in the travel industry for 7 years and caught the travel bug in her late teens, I am KristenDeAngelo. I’ve visited 20 countries around the world and some several times. I have a huge love, passion and desire to travel and be immersed in other cultures. I also have a love for photography, animals, music, white sandy beaches with blue waters and the Caribbean. My second home and a piece of my heart lives in the Caribbean islands. I specialize and am very familiar with the Caribbean islands and Mexico’s Caribbean beach areas. I’ve had the opportunity to send several clients to visit these areas, however, I have planned client’s vacations around the globe that have included several different travel components. My focus and fulfillment has turned towards planning destination weddings and honeymoons. I hold my IATAN certification as well as many other certifications of destinations and resorts. I have won Travel Agent magazine’s “30 under 30” award in 2017 and was recognized with an article in the magazine. I’ve also written several articles for industry magazines.
