The summers of Kate’s youth were spent road tripping across the US with her family, visiting countless national parks and recreation areas to enjoy the outdoors. Post college, her love for travel deepened following her first international trip to Thailand where she taught English and traveled the country.

While her home base is currently Chicago, you will rarely find Kate and her husband at home. Instead, they are off enjoying city outings, hiking and camping throughout the midwest, jetting away for long weekends, or sharing weeks abroad exploring new cultures, tasting local dishes, and viewing natural wonders. Whether home or away, their next adventure is never far!

With a Masters degree in Special Education, Kate fully understands and appreciates that everyone learns and engages with the world differently making unique individualized itineraries her specialty and she looks forward to sharing that with all of her clients at Videre Travel!

Spontaneous cliff diving with locals while on a hike in St. Lucia is definitely a travel highlight! Also among my favorites are boating with friends on Lake Como as well as morning greetings from monkeys climbing on our treehouse in Costa Rica!
