Meet our Team!
Maria is the Office Magician and Juggler at Smiles and Miles Travel.
Plucked from a treadmill at Ellen’s gym several years ago when business started booming, Maria has been the invaluable ‘go-to woman’ of the Agency ever since. She not only knows the location of every client file — she knows where each client is going, where else they’ve been, the names of their kids and dogs, and their favorite tee (or tea) times.
Maria is the travel-savvy organizer who maintains Smiles and Miles Travel’s lightening-fast pace, keeping clients informed and their travel plans safe, even when Ellen is off inspecting new resorts on the Riviera Maya.Email Maria
With a background in the financial industry, Kim Paderson brings her skill with numbers to bear as Chief Database Manager and Marketing Maven at Smiles and Miles Travel. Kim especially enjoys working with Destination Wedding and Bar/Bat Mitzvah groups, and loves accompanying Mom Ellen on inspection tours at luxury resorts!Email Kim
