Kathy Kocharhook, founder and CEO of Sail-N-Travel, is one-of-a-kind, certified and highly credentialed travel expert. She is passionate, talented, caring, and skillful. Assisted by her husband, Dave, Kathy designs dream vacations to any part of the world.
Kathy’s background as a professionally trained wedding and event planner adds extra dimension to her already masterfully planned vacation trips.
The Kocharhook family has created priceless memories during trips to many parts of the world. They have made a tradition of traveling at Christmas every year as their gift to each other, where they bonded while experiencing the world together. “Seeing how other cultures live, work and play has deepened our appreciation for the world and our place in it,” said Kathy.
Kathy has a knack for organizing trips and events. She loves designing trips almost as much as traveling, and loves to share her passion and skills with those who don’t know how or where to begin the planning process.
“I really care about people and am deeply committed to assisting as many as possible to explore, experience and connect to the world around them. I want to help kids learn to care about others and not just ‘Me’. I want to help people experience the transformative power of travel, by venturing beyond their comfort zone. The world needs the healing and bonding that travel experiences offer, now more than ever. We are more alike than different. Traveling makes people realize that.”
