Hi! I am Yuliya, a founder of Personal Travel Planners and your Personal Travel Planner.

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

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 Story

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 were born.

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

With love,

Yuliya Kovelman
