A Bit About The Company and its Founder

Learn About Cari Me Away Travels

Cari Me Away Travels started in 2007 with a dream and persistence. I have worked with numerous clients helping them plan vacations they never thought possible. Travel is a passion and helping people make lasting memories is the heart of the company's mission. 

I have expertise in helping the differently-abled and those that need to consider accessbility while traveling. There are many details that go into a vacation, but when you need to consider accessibility, the right questions need to be asked. Because my daughter, Jacquie, and I have traveled extensively together and she is a wheelchair user, I have seen it all. 

I am a Veritifed Travel Advisor through the American Society of Travel Advisors and have a number of certifications through the travel industry. For a complete list, visit the Professionalism page on this website.

Learn About Cari Kelley

Cari loves helping people travel. She lived in Europe from 1987 to 1989 and traveled throughout Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Italy. During those two years, she learned that she had a real love of traveling and exploring different cultures. When the opportunity came to her in 2007 to join the travel industry, she did not hesitate. She loves hearing the stories upon a client's return and appreciates what she learns, not only from within the travel industry, but from her clients.

She lives in Grand Isle with her partner, Greg. They have a blended family of five children. She loves to play guitar, knit, take walks with her 130-pound black lab, Tank, cook, and of course, travel. She currently sits on the Franklin County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, the Destination Imagination Board of Directors, the Sail Beyond Cancer Board, and was appointed by Governor Phil Scott to the State Rehabilitation Council. 

She and her daughter, Jacquie, started the Wheels for Jacquie Foundation in November of 2020. The Foundation focuses on raising funds for the differently-abled to afford accessible transportation. 15% of travel commissions paid are donated to the Foundation. She also works as the Workplace Donor Relations Manager for the United Way of Northwest Vermont.
