Kevin Doheny

Luxury Travel Advisor & Protégé Program Director | Chicago, USA

Kevin has been an avid traveler since he was a child, gaining early exposure after being whisked away on his first plane ride at four months old.  This set the foundation for a continuous desire to explore the world.  Subsequent travel experiences throughout his life, including a study-abroad program in Rome, convinced him that the travel industry was where he should make his home.  He completed his Bachelor’s degree at Loyola University Chicago, and worked in diverse areas of the industry including tour operation and airline customer service.

Kevin joins Cerulean after over a decade of experience with a high-end boutique agency in Chicago, focusing on luxury honeymoons (and other special occasion travel) all over the world.  During this time he was also named one of Travel Agent Magazine’s Top 30 under 30 Agents.  He is now excited to be part of the Cerulean team of first-class travel advisors as well as leading Cerulean’s Protégé Program expansion.

Some of his favorite travel experiences have been safaris in South Africa with family and friends, exploring Luxury Lodges of New Zealand and Australia, and private island hopping in the Seychelles.  Aside from traveling the globe, Kevin enjoys discovering new restaurants (he is our resident Foodie!), wine bars, concerts, keeping up his French language skills, and spending time with his Pomeranian, Noah.

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, followed 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.

Cathy Major

Luxury Travel Advisor | Cincinnati, USA

Growing up in a family of avid travelers, Cathy has always made sure her calendar is booked with plans for her next adventure. These trips inevitably consist of great experiences as well. Whether learning how to make paella in Barcelona, driving mini motorboats in St. Maarten, or cuddling a koala in Sydney, Cathy always strives to find fun excursions that can be tied into a trip to make it the most memorable for everyone.

Cathy has spent the last fourteen years as a recruiter for an online virtual tour platform. Throughout this time, she has developed and refined her online search and network development skills, which have become a transferable and valuable skillset for travel exploration, access and planning.

She has lived in Cincinnati for most of her life and is a foodie who loves to cook, especially for her husband Brian, son Alex and daughter Madeline. If Cathy were to design her ideal vacation, it would include a beautiful beach, a special dinner spot, a spectacular view, with family & friends together to enjoy it all. With her passion for travel, she is energized to help others find their special place, and create memorable experiences.

Jordan Brady

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!

Keisha Walters

Strategic Travel Assistant | Barbados, West Indies

Traveling is Keisha’s greatest pastime and through business and pleasure she has traveled extensively throughout Europe, USA, the Caribbean and parts of Africa and Asia.

Visiting the pyramids in Egypt, a camel ride across the desert in Morocco, parascending in the Bahamas, swimming with the dolphins in Jamaica and climbing Dunn’s River Falls are just some of the highlights of Keisha’s past travels.

However, it was the small island of Barbados that captured her heart, even before she had traveled there.  So she left London, where she was born and raised, to live her Caribbean dream and now resides on the sunny island of Barbados.  Keisha has also lived in Madrid during her studies and lived and worked in Paris during and post studies.

Travel logistics management is Keisha’s forte and she has spent more than 15 years managing these for C-Suite executives and is therefore uniquely positioned to help Cerulean’s luxury clients.

In her spare time, Keisha enjoys Pilates, eating out, days at the beach and a nice glass of red wine!

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.
