Meet Carrie, the Founder behind the Cerulean Travel Experience

Carrie Wallace

Founder and President | Chicago, USA

As Founder and President of Cerulean World Travel, Carrie Wallace brings more than 10 years of deep industry experience to her latest travel venture. Previously president of a boutique luxury travel consultancy, which she built into a nationally recognized authority on honeymoons and special occasion travel, she has also worked extensively with upscale adventure travelers, foodies, culture seekers, safari aficionados, young families, multigenerational groups, and corporate retreats, among others.

Between her work in travel and her prior role as a Management Consultant, Carrie has lived in both Singapore and France, which has fueled her passion for the discovery of new and far-flung experiences. Having explored more than 70 countries and territories, she brings this passion and her worldwide network of luxury and experiential travel contacts to Cerulean and its clients.

Carrie is a frequent expert contributor to a variety of travel magazines and newspapers, and sits on Cigar Aficionado’s panel of Travel Industry Experts. She has been named one of Travel Agent Magazine’s Top 25 Agents, and has been nominated as one of the Virtuoso Travel Network’s “Most Innovative Advisors”. Her favorite regions in which to travel are Africa, South America and Southeast Asia. When not scouting the globe for amazing destinations and experiences for Cerulean’s clients, Carrie enjoys running, hiking, wine, vegetarian cooking and studying foreign language. She’s fluent in Spanish and French, and is currently pondering what to take up next!

Kristin Bronkar

Luxury Travel Associate | Pittsburgh, USA

Passionate about customer service and experiencing the unknown, Kristin was attracted to the travel industry after having a highly-successful management career in a fast-paced retail environment. With a degree in marketing, she believes in the importance of personal relationships, and there is nothing she will not do in support of Cerulean’s clients. Bitten by the travel bug on her honeymoon to Hawaii, Kristin learned to scuba dive and enjoyed biking down Mount Haleakalā in Maui. Adventurous and curious by nature, she and her family love taking their dogs to explore National Parks, remote lakes and any place they can swim for sticks. One of her bucket list items is to indulge her love of yoga and experience 10 different yoga retreats throughout the world. Grateful for the opportunity to help others find growth and happiness through travel, Kristin assures that Cerulean’s clients can discover the world in ways they might never imagine and will certainly never forget. She’s just back from South Africa and is keen to help our clients explore this amazing country!

Next on her travel list? Santorini, Australia, New Zealand, Tanzania and Telluride, Colorado.

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.

Next on her travel list? Prague, Iceland, South Africa, Costa Rica and Hawaii.
