Kat joined JCPT in 2011 and brought with her, vast experience in the travel & tourism industry. She spent 3 years working as a travel consultant for a San Diego-based travel store that specialized in independent European travel. She also has more than 10 years of experience with Marriott Hotels at four different properties and in nearly every department including front desk, concierge, reservations, transportation, room service, and housekeeping. She has traveled to Europe several times, most recently living/working in Italy for three months. She has been a participant on four JCPT trips so far – to Guatemala, Oaxaca (Mexico) and Peru with Jim and to the Philippines with Karl.
In addition to her work with us, she does occasional freelance photography work for a local newspaper covering sports, community events, and breaking news. Her new favorite camera is her iPhone 11 Pro Max. “Color” is her favorite subject. She is passionate about sharing photography with others and offers public and private lessons on how to “see” and create better photos no matter what the equipment one may have at their disposal.
Kat has a Bachelor of Art in Studio Arts from San Diego State University. Her work can be seen at www.seethingsdifferently.com.
