Cathy Kroll’s Travel Experience
From CPA to travel advisor: Practicing accounting for years and also planning travel for others has been a dual passion for Cathy for years. Cathy is now planning travel for others 100% of the time. Not only has Cathy planned travel for groups, individuals, organizations, and couples for many years, she has also traveled extensively.
Cathy Kroll is passionate about working with clients to create extraordinary travel experiences. It all begins by listening to what clients desire from their travel experiences. Do they want to relax for a week on a beach in Tahiti? Travel on a personalized small group Safari? Spend time with extended family on a cruise? Spend a weekend in a Union Square hotel in San Francisco? Plan for a business meeting or seminar? The opportunities are endless.
Unique Personalized Travel Planning: Your Investment Matters
In helping clients plan for a great travel experience, Cathy follows Stephen Covey's Habit # 2: "Begin with the end in mind." Through Cathy's training with Virtuoso®, she has learned to collaborate with clients to make their travel experiences enjoyable and stress free.
Some of the questions Cathy asks clients: What do you want to say about your vacation when it's over? What would be a "wow" factor for you? For one client, it may be as simple as relaxing and watching at an outdoor café with an espresso and croissant, while another client may want to experience Macchu Pichu or a Lion's Roar on an African Safari.
Cathy and her travel clients work together to create magnificent itineraries - making changes in the planning stages to fine tune travel to clients' desires and needs.
