Dearmon crafts trips that promote meaningful cultural exchange, whether those itineraries involve dining in a local’s home or taking traditional dance lessons. Another growing area of interest for her clients? Trips closer to home that cut down on both travel time and environmental footprint. “My clients want to know how they can offset their carbon footprints, whether hotels are using single-use plastics, and if the people they interact with are paid a fair wage,” she says. One of the most rewarding trips she planned recently was a wellness weekend to Sedona, Arizona for a working mother based in Phoenix; the trip was such a success that her client booked the same trip the following year. “There are numerous options for luxurious and experiential travel in the United States,” she says. But Dearmon can also handle far-flung itineraries that involve complex logistics — like a multi-generational getaway to Ghana or a culture-packed trip to Senegal.
