Kristen had been a client of a Brownell Luxury Travel Advisor for 10 years before making travel her full-time career. During those years, she learned firsthand that working with a travel advisor can be a game-changer when you travel. A well-connected advisor can secure exclusive amenities at luxury hotels that you just can't get when booking travel on your own - complimentary breakfasts, $100 hotel credits, coveted room upgrades, insider access to local experiences, and VIP status. It's the smartest way to travel.

Prior to joining the travel industry, Kristen was a physical therapist and Director of Rehabilitation with a career that followed her from New York, Idaho, California, and finally Montana. Kristen lives in beautiful Whitefish, Montana with her husband, George and their 13-year old son, Johnny. She enjoys skiing, mountain biking, golfing, yoga and meditation, maintaining a gluten free diet, photography, and has a passion for luxury travel. She finds luxury beach vacations to be the perfect complement to her active mountain lifestyle.
