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 free breakfasts, $100 hotel credits, coveted room upgrades, insider access to local experiences, and VIP status. It's the smartest way to travel.

Kristen lives in beautiful Whitefish, Montana with her husband, George and their 12-year old son, Johnny. Prior to joining Brownell, Kristen was a physical therapist and Director of Rehabilitation at the Montana Veterans' Home. She enjoys skiing, mountain biking, golfing, yoga and meditation, maintaining a 100% gluten free diet, photography, and has a passion for luxury travel. Her favorite place to visit is Hawaii and finds Maui to be the perfect complement to her active mountain lifestyle.
