Katherine Fields, 25
It was a no-brainer for Katherine Fields to become a travel advisor in 2017. “I love people and I love travel. It just felt natural,” she says.
She was immediately lauded for her good work: She was invited to be a part of Sandals Select Star Awards in 2017 and 2018, to join a Virtuoso fam to Switzerland. She explored Bora Bora and French Polynesia with Pleasant Holidays in December of 2019. Along the way, she received the “Best of the Best” recognition for Travel Agents, a local community award.
“We are constantly amazed at how quickly Katherine has developed into a successful luxury travel advisor,” said Ramona and Michael Holbrook, owners of Columbus Travel in their endorsement. “She has excelled at building relationships with her clients as well as putting together complex, customized FITs, not only to Europe but to Japan, Brazil, Thailand and many other destinations. She is also a true advocate for her clients and seeks out the best values while watching out for their interests. It has been an absolute joy to watch her flourish as a full-fledged luxury travel advisor, establishing her own portfolio of luxury clients.”
Fields also helps out with the agency’s operations. She is part of the marketing team, assists with new staff training and is in charge of organizing Columbus Travel’s annual bridal show schedule; she also represents Columbus Travel at each event.
