Karen McAlpin doesn’t just plan trips; she designs them. She works closely with each client to get a feel for their unique needs and expectations for the trip and then matches those with a destination. As the process continues, she tweaks and adjusts the details so that the final itinerary and experience is completely tailored to the client. Karen enjoys forming a relationship with each client during the planning process. She encourages clients to share their likes and dislikes about past trips and uses this information to help them discover what they would like to achieve on their next trip.

Karen McAlpin quoteWith her keen eye for detail and knack for creativity, it comes as no surprise that Karen was an interior designer before joining the Brownell Mentoring Program in 2012. A mother of two, Karen has a passion for all things Disney, and she loves to arm clients with knowledge so they arrive on the property an expert. She also likes planning multi-generational travel, especially to beach destinations. Whether it’s a renovated property in Florida or a brand new beachfront resort halfway across the world, Karen keeps her finger on the pulse of all things oceanfront.
