Jane Braun’s passion for travel took root at a young age, when her parents owned an inn in Vermont, hosting travelers from around the world. She was as captivated by stories of their homeland and travels as they were about hers. Later, this passion deepened when she moved to a village outside of London with her husband and two young daughters. Some of her favorite experiences while living abroad were cycling through the English countryside, cruising up the Nile and gazing at the Dolomites through the window of a train. From these experiences, she came to see that travel isn’t just about a place, it’s also about people and finding ways to connect with them. To Jane and her family, this combination is their ‘secret sauce’ to an exceptional travel experience.
Jane combined her 20+ years of business experience with her passion for travel, love of learning and entrepreneurial spirit. She turned that dream into reality when she launched Saddle Hill Travel and joined forces with Brownell Travel, a Virtuoso Agency, as an Independent Travel Advisor, to create, design and deliver exceptional travel experiences.
Jane believes that exceptional travel experiences don’t just happen: they’re carefully planned and orchestrated. Whether it’s a weekend getaway with friends, a family adventure, a milestone anniversary or a multi-generational trip – each and every experience should be special. By understanding her clients’ travel goals and vision, Jane is focused on delivering value and exceeding expectations. Travel is a big investment and she keeps this front and center at all times. This peace of mind continues until the client arrives home, shares stories and pictures and pauses only briefly until the conversation turns to… “where to next?”
