Karen began criss-crossing the country at the age of 5, when she and her brother traveled between parent's homes in Alabama and Michigan; unfortunately long before frequent flyer miles.  She became expert on how to negotiate airports before the age of 10.

After college, Karen designed interiors for homes, offices, hotels, yachts, and commercial spaces creating beautiful spaces to enrich her client's lives. 

As a military spouse, with a full-time retail management career following graduate school, Karen planned European vacations to gather her friends together from all corners of the country.

Her groups began with a few friends, grew to a dozen, then doubled again. The original trip-planning soon evolved from an avocation to a passionate business. Karen joined Andrea, owner of Unique Travel Events, before moving to Florida 8 years ago. 

Since residing in Florida, Karen founded TravelBling LLC.  Now she continues to enrich her client's travel experiences, creating custom land journeys as well as astonishing cruise voyages with pre and post extensions.

Travel should be a joyful, worry-free experience.  And Karen aims to exceed your expectations.

With the ongoing corona virus engulfing the world, Karen continues to engage daily in online learning, business update webinars, and fine-tuning her business to be ready for the pent-up demand when it's over.

Specializing in world-wide cruises and European itineraries.
