Connect with Jill

Jill believes there is no greater passion nor fruits of hard work and labor than traveling. Her passport was first stamped as a young child, just 18 months, and she has not stopped collecting new stamps ever since.

When not immersing herself in a country’s culture, you will find her on a beach sipping on the yummy local cocktail. She and her husband have a ritual of drawing the next destination on the plane ride home from their current trip. For her, it is the perfect way to look forward to the next adventure!

Brittany Lister

Connect with Brittany

Brittany loves traveling as it fulfills her curiosity about the world. She has enjoyed seeing surroundings outside of the norm of everyday life. As we all have different desires when traveling, you’re likely to find her on a beach somewhere. Give her a beach, a book, and a cold beverage, and she’s a happy lady.

Brittany was born and raised in Atlanta. She married her college sweetheart and now lives two and a half hours south of Atlanta in Warner Robins, Georgia. She has two little girls, five years old and ten months, and two very disobedient, spoiled dogs.

Allison Hall-Smith

Specialties:  Disney, Hawaii, Cruises, Family & Group Travel

Connect with Allison

Allison’s love for travel started as a toddler. She grew up in Indiana with educator parents, where school breaks were an excuse to hit the road and explore. Spring break saw annual trips to Walt Disney World. Summer was for camping adventures that have taken her across the US, Canada, and countless National Parks. She continued traveling throughout college and spent six months living at Walt Disney World while participating in their college program. Joining her often was her high school sweetheart, who married on the beach in Maui, HI. Now they have two boys, ages 12 and 7. As a family, they love visiting Walt Disney World, Hawaii, exploring new resorts, but most of all spending time together. Allison hopes to take a Disney cruise to Alaska so she can visit her 50th state.

Allison believes family travel allows us to connect and recharge. She left her career as a fashion designer searching for a new adventure and is excited to be helping others create unforgettable experiences and memories through family travel.

He’s an expert in solo traveling Europe, and helping others achieve their travel dreams (especially if it’s to Iceland) is one of his favorite things.
