Office Manager

Karen Bavoso

Specialties & Interests: Beyond Office Manager duties, I work with clients on Group Travel, Family Travel, Independent Travel, and Wedding Groups

Recent Destinations & Favorites– Paris & London, River Cruising, & Africa has definitely been one of my trips of all time

I started my career on the Wholesale side of the travel business 30 years ago, rising to being a business-oriented manager.  During this time, I gained a thorough appreciation for the back end management side of our travel industry.  When I joined the Woodlake Travel team in 2007 I was initially a front line travel advisor, yet found myself missing what I’d been doing, such that when I was asked if I’d like to become the manger here I jumped at the opportunity and never looked back.  Today, I find myself as acting Office Manager, yet simultaneously continue to work with a limited number of clients putting together great trips and memories, as that will always be a part of the business for me..  I love this industry and don’t ever see myself doing anything else. It’s a big world out there, let’s go!
