My Background

My company, Air and Marine Travel Service, has been dedicated to delivering highly curated experiential vacation voyages to our clients in the air, on the land and sea for over eight decades.

Travel is more than logistics. It is, at its best, a very human experience where you connect with people, places and experiences that shape the prism through which you see the world.

I am a caregiver, a luxury travel advisor, a traveler, a mother, and a small business owner. I love the adventure of life. It has led me to the precipice of the Allagash Falls, to canoe the boundary waters with my family two weeks from civilization. It led me to train with a man who learned the way of the wilderness from an Apache Elder, Shaman and scout in the pine barrens when I was five months pregnant with my son. I got my scuba certificate in my sixth decade of life. It has led me to six continents and countless countries. I’ve trained with marksmen at world class facilities, studied for a pilot’s license, skied the alps with my husband and sent our clients to every corner of the globe. I sailed part way around the world on the Queen Elizabeth II when I was pregnant with my son. I’ve tasted raw wine on the Island of Vulcano and walked with penguins in Antarctica. I have been blessed to live life with vigor and that is why travel matters to me.

In 1932 my father-in-law Thad Hyatt started Tramp Trips Inc. focused exclusively on 12-passenger tramp freighter travel. In 1938 he started Air and Marine Travel Service and in 1947 he started Caribbean Holidays Inc. In the Spring of 1971, I purchased Air and Marine Travel Service with my husband Jim Hyatt to continue building on the legacy. Our eight-plus decades in business shows a dedication to the journey and not just the destination.

With the passing of my husband in 1997, I made the right decision to bring us into Tzell Travel Group. Becoming part of Tzell, has allowed us to leverage our collective volume and reputation and continue creating remarkable vacation voyages in the air, on the land and sea.

Working alongside my son Keith has been rewarding and it brings us great pleasure to arrange your travel. Whether you want to explore the world by private jet, sailing yacht, expedition ship, river cruise, luxury train or be chauffeured through the countryside, or a trip to grandma’s house, we can make it happen. Let us bring your passions to life with a curated experience to awaken your curiosity and nourish your soul.
