Our Team


Owner/Travel Planner

I am a professional travel planner holding a CTA (Certified Travel Associate) degree in travel, and major in time management and planning,

I sincerely believe that having a travel planner allows you save TIME and be able to concentrate on your life, so when this is time to travel, you can truly enjoy the experience.

My travel roots go back to my early life in Eastern Europe. Living in Ukraine for the the first 25 years of my life, I got to travel extensively and was always fascinated by new places and people around me. Traveling was always a hobby. But planning was my real specialty back then. Not the travel planning thought. I got to plan events, conferences and be a logistics specialist for a living. So I can fairly say that planning is my true passion and something I have always loved to do.

Ironically enough, in 2004 I moved to New York City where I got to marry my kindergarten sweetheart and where I happily live ever since. Life got in a way of pursuing travel as much as I would want to. I landed a good paying corporate job, had to two beautiful kids and lived a typical 9 to 5 lifestyle. Until one day I made a decision…

 I took a leap of face and started pursuing my real passion, which combined two things I loved the most, travel and planning. This is how PERSONAL TRAVEL PLANNERS was born.

I can assure you that using professional help in planning your trips can make a huge difference in the way you experience travel.


Travel/Event Planner

Since I was a little girl, I knew adventure and travel was in my blood. Books about that sort of thing always fascinated me. Fast forward to college years and out of all the options available, I choose to study Hospitality and Tourism management and International Business. I had no clue what I was going to do with all of that education (aside from wanting to eventually retire owning a small boutique hotel oceanfront somewhere tropical ) but I surely hoped it would help me travel the world. I am forever grateful for things event planning taught me about planning and running events internationally.

Helping other people experience the magic of travel is my passion. I promise to help you create a spectacular one of a kind event, your clients won’t be able to stop raving about. I want to take care of all the planning, logistics and details, to let you concentrate on your creative genius… the coaching!
