Having a mother from the UK, I have been traveling back and forth to Europe my entire life.  My early travels lead me to want to work in the travel industry and craft itineraries not only to destinations that I love to return to, but to also discover new places that I had only dreamed of.


I’ve been so fortunate to travel on many luxury cruises, including river cruises throughout Europe.  Also to be hosted by tour companies and associations to visit their destinations and to bring back the information to share with my clients. 


I pride myself on my professional contacts around the world to make your journey a better one. I have been hosted to attend the pre eminent travel event, ILTM in Cannes France, 3 times.  This is a travel show to connect with worldwide hoteliers and travel companies that excel in luxury offerings. 


I’ve learned that the best trips include comfortable airline cabins, private transportation, hotels that connect you to the location, and personalized experiences, while enjoying local cuisine and drink in your long dreamt of destination.


I would love to work with you to create an extraordinary trip of a lifetime.  Whether your dream is to go on a safari in Africa, cruise the beautiful rivers of Europe, visit the inspiring destination of Machu Picchu or to travel to the serene country of Japan, I’ve been there, and can help make your journey a memory of a lifetime. 


When I’m not on a luxury vacation, you’ll find me enjoying the beautiful Pacific Northwest with the beautiful Puget Sound in my backyard.

We enjoy working with Kim. I always have 5,000 questions and she’s always prompt, patient, honest and understanding with us. We’ve worked with her on three trips, including our honeymoon in 2013.

Dream Trip Made A Reality
I was referred to Travel Leaders by a friend & found Kim Johnston. She made the whole process so easy & amazing. I told her where & what I had in mind & she booked it perfectly! Prior to the trip we met with her & she answered all of our questions & addresses any concern we had. The entire trip went so smooth & I felt that she had prepared us so well that there weren't any surprises or issues. I would highly recommend Kim & Travel Leaders for all of your travel needs.
