Jody Vandergriff's Travel Secret: "I check it all. I can't stand to tote children and carry-ons through the airport."

She learned to travel well the hard way.

“I was on my honeymoon. We were heading to a remote island. They dropped us off in the water so we could wade to shore. Everyone else had backpacks. There we were with our roller bags, trying to keep them above the waves…”

Casey Tip: Rent the right bag for every occasion. 

As a travel entrepreneur she travels a lot.

“I’m going somewhere every month—tons of long weekends since we have two young kids and are constrained by school schedules. A few years ago I spent eight weeks in Europe—14 different cities. I feel like I always have a half-packed bag in my bedroom that is coming or going.”

Why start Seeker?

“I was an entrepreneur in enterprise software for 15 years. After I sold my business, I knew I had to start another company, and I wanted something that comes from a position of passion. I love to travel, and I could see myself devoting the next decade to it!”
