Cathy Lewis

Luxury Travel Advisor | Santa Fe, USA

Whether the goal is culinary or outdoor adventure, cultural activity, or pure leisure, Cathy’s thoughtful planning and preparation will ensure the best possible experience for her clients.

Cathy’s first foray abroad occurred at the age of eight, on a family trip to Israel and the UK. In the decades since, she has explored 18 countries on four continents, including extended residence in France and Italy. Her love of Western European culture led to an undergraduate degree in French, Italian, and art history, follwed by work as a translator of both languages, a graduate degree in European studies, and international work in the private and non-profit sectors. Long before the Internet, Cathy provided an astounding range of specialized concierge and emergency services to clients globally. Through years of work and volunteering at small and large performing arts organizations, she appreciates the importance of personalized stewardship. As a luxury travel advisor, her varied interests and skills have come full circle, blurring the lines between work and life.

Cathy has lived in Maine, Washington, DC, Aspen, and twenty-plus years in San Francisco, enjoying all the gifts of those diverse locales. She and her husband now call Santa Fe home.

Debbie Dominguez

Chief Administrative Officer | Chicago, USA

Debbie is responsible for all things “back-office” at Cerulean – she makes sure we have the systems and processes in place to support our clients and partners in a proactive fashion. A travel aficionado from way back, Debbie’s true passion is for the ocean, and above all snorkeling! Her love of the water has taken her to the coast of Roatan Island in Honduras, to marine-rich Holbox Island in Mexico to swim with whale sharks, and the pristine bays of Fiji, which have some of the best reefs in the world. She’s also explored Old-World Europe, including Rome and Paris. In addition to her adventurous spirit, Debbie is the quintessential “people person”, and someone who always makes us smile.

Jordan Brady

Luxury Travel Advisor and Cerulean Affiliate at Journey Bound Travel Co. | Boston, USA

While Jordan cannot pinpoint exactly when the world of travel stole his heart, he does know that ever since graduating college in 2009, friends, family and the like tend to question why he has a permanent address.  He was also lucky enough to marry a woman who is just as passionate about exploring everything the world has to offer by his side.

Adventurous outdoors activities of all seasons get his adreneline pumping, which is why he is happy to bundle up apnd shovel out of those cold New England winters.  Skiing, hiking, kayaking, climbing, swimming, biking, beaching, SUP-ing…you name it!

Nothing is better than breathing in some fresh air and breaking a sweat, knowing that you’ve earned your evening indulgence.  An itimate 9-course tasting menu executed by a local chef?  Après ski cocktails with an unforgettable view?  Sign him up!  When he’s not traveling or planning a trip you’ll probably find him on the back deck grilling up a storm (local craft beer in hand) or at the hockey rink, keeping his competitive spirit alive.

As an engineer by the books, he loves digging into the details.  Hand crafting the perfectly balanced itienrary for his clients so that they can spend more time enjoying their experiences tailored to their passions for travel and less time worrying about the details…that’s what really gets his gears cranking!
