Karen Smith

Travel Consultant

As my children grew, I made sure to take them traveling to see and experience the world - which further cultivated my desire to be in the travel industry. My travel career started as a flight attendant with American Airlines where for 10 years I had the exciting opportunity to visit many amazing destinations. I then decided to move into a different realm of the travel industry and began working at Carol’s Travel Service in a support role. I left for a while and honed my experience and skills in group travel sales, itinerary design, and operations. I worked extensively with river cruises, small ocean cruises, and guided tours during that time. I returned to Carol’s Travel Service as a Travel Advisor to share my expertise with our clients and help design treasured journeys they will remember for a lifetime. As a Signature Travel Expert with Carols Travel Service, I work with our travelers who are looking to travel independently, on guided tours, packages, cruises or in common interest groups. I've earned the Certified Travel Advisor accreditation from the Institute of Certified Travel Advisors which designates me as a well-trained travel professional.

To help you discover ways to explore the world, we're pleased to share our digital magazines, The Travel Magazine and the Ultimate Experiences online.
