Born in South Dakota, a summer job as a nanny on the east coast was the spark for Kristen Hosek Walker to pursue a career in the travel industry. Someone once told her “find something you love to do and you’ll never work a day in your life” – from that, she began her pursuit to happiness.
After graduating from high school, she went to Vancouver, Wash., to attend the International Air Academy. Kristen went on to work for Continental Airlines and various travel agencies before settling in Vermillion S.D. and opening her own storefront location – Travel By Kristen. She then moved to Sioux Falls and joined Travel Partners.
In her 25-plus years of experience, she has traveled extensively in the United States, Caribbean & Mexico and more recently started her European travels. She is very well versed in destination weddings, honeymoons, groups, corporate & leisure, cruise travel and all things Disney. Kristen has a sign hanging in her office that says “There are 7 days in a week and someday isn’t one of them”. She would love to help you chase your dreams.
Everything from start to the end of our trip went has it was planned.
Easy and simple! Felt at ease that everything was planned out for us by Kristen.
Kristen was the BEST!!!
