About Kelsey

Writing about her travels is newer to Kelsey Smith than the experience. Her parents instilled a love of travel in her at a young age and she’s been racing through airports ever since. With a bucket list of destinations already checked off, Kelsey may talk about swimming with dolphins in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and the beaches of the Hawaiian Islands, but her heart remains on the soft sands along the shores of Lake Michigan.

While earning her Bachelor of Science degree in journalism at Central Michigan University in Mount Pleasant, Group Tour Media’s associate editor served as editor-in-chief of Grand Central Magazine and contributed to a variety of publications, including Central Michigan Life.  She also developed a following for her weekly column, Wine Wednesday – a favorite being “Eight things to do with wine corks.” Follow her group-focused spirits trail blog on

Off the job, find Kelsey at a coffee shop or concert, perhaps cheering on the Chicago Blackhawks, but definitely traveling.
