Hello from Jenene Mealey, Founder of Travel With Awestruck

I founded my travel agency to bring high-touch service back to travel. Because when you’re investing your precious time and dollars in a vacation, you deserve an expert team who will make your experience as remarkable, seamless, and awe-inspiring as it can be.

Our acclaimed personalized travel service is the key that unlocks travel’s best kept secrets, just for you.

more about me:

As a nationally-recognized, award-winning travel advisor, I know exactly what it takes to deliver exceptional vacations. I’ve been called the “Olivia Pope” of Travel (any other Scandal fans out there?). I’ve worked tirelessly to forge industry relationships with the top properties, managers, and travel “movers and shakers” around the world. These contacts allow me to open doors for my clients that would otherwise remain closed—meaning nothing is off limits. From miraculously locating luggage lost en route to the Galapagos Islands to opening up inventory at “sold out” five-star resorts, my clients know that we make the impossible happen for them. 

It’s not just about the connections—it’s about tenaciously advocating for your needs. As so many aspects of our lives move online, become automated, and leave us more isolated, our service remains decidedly old-school. You not only get our “support” when you travel—you get my personal cell number. I’ve been blessed to build a business on referrals and repeat bookings because my clients know I will move mountains for them—and I would be honored to do the same for you. 

My promise to you? No one will work harder for you than my team at Travel With Awestruck. So let us make the “impossible” happen for your next vacation.

my current obsession:

Becoming a better leader in the travel industry. I’m so passionate about supporting this industry and am proud to have co-founded the Travel Allies Society, an organization that fosters support and connection for travel leaders. 

my favorite destination

Puglia, the Southern heel of the Italian boot. Some say it’s the next Amalfi Coast. I hope not. I selfishly want to keep this hidden gem a secret for a little longer. 

my best piece of travel advice

Build a relationship with a travel professional who will get to know your personal travel style, needs, and desires—every trip you plan together will be even better than the last. 

my favorite travel memory

My daughter has special needs, and she has been too sick to fly for many years. I would do anything to be able to take her on vacation. Seeing the look on her face when she saw the water color in Turks and Caicos during a vacation to Grace Bay was one of my favorite awestruck moments.

connect with jenene

Jenene is one of a kind! Undoubtedly, the best travel partner our family and company have experienced. Personally, I’ve been working with Jenene for over a decade. Her commitment to providing exceptional customer service is unrivaled. What’s so unique is that it’s just part of her, she’s as authentic as they come. I’m not surprised her business has grown the way it has, she’s passionate, smart, savvy and knows her industry and loves her customers. When Jenene is involved in planning our corporate reward trips and/or our family vacations I have great peace of mind...and that is rare these days. I cannot thank her enough for the countless times she’s confirmed every fine detail, come to our rescue, fulfilled our crazy requests, and gone WAY above and beyond!! The added value you will receive by working with Jenene is truly priceless!

We will never plan another vacation on our own. Jenene planned a flawless and seamless once in a lifetime trip to Italy for our honeymoon. The best hotels in the best locations, private drivers, first class trains, the best tour guides and we didn’t waste a minute standing in a line. Finally, she basically rented out an entire lemon farm for us and the family taught us how to cook some of their family recipes. It was worth every penny. Rome, Florence, Positano in that order! We can’t wait for Jenene to plan our next trip. Thank you for your attention to every detail and your thoughtful design. You’re a rockstar Jenene!

As Vice President of a successful organization and a lover of travel, I and my company have been on several trips over many years for both business and personal reasons. Jenene and Travel With Awestruck have proven to be the reason our trips are so enjoyable from start to finish. Every detail is taken into consideration. Jenene and her staff really care about those they are working with, whether taking care of a larger group of 200+ people or smaller intimate groups of 4-6 people. The personal touch is why we keep coming back to Travel With Awestruck year after year. Jenene’s knowledge and insight of the places we are traveling to have been invaluable to us. I have and will continue to recommend Travel With Awestruck to any individual or organization who is looking to make travel arrangements. Thank you, Jenene and Staff, for always taking care of me and my colleagues at Ohio State Waterproofing.

Jenene was incredible to work with and made planning our honeymoon stress-free. Her knowledge and experience were impressive as she helped us build an itinerary of world-class accommodations and over the top activities at the best prices possible. Even when we had to cancel our trip at the last minute due to a family situation, she made that process simple for us and began right away to rebuild our trip with new dates. Every one of her recommendations was a home-run, and we had the trip of a lifetime. Using Jenene is a no-brainer.

Five stars is not enough credit for how easy and amazing my experience was working with Travel With Awestruck and Jenene. I was referred to Jenene by multiple people for planning my trip to Europe. I spoke with Jenene on the phone and told her my plans for my trip. She made everything so easy and saved me thousands of dollars. She booked everything we wanted and then some extras also. We had private pickups to and from airports and hotels. Even while overseas she kept in contact with us to make sure we had the best trip. I will never use anyone else and would recommend her to anyone planning a trip. She is the best hands down. Book with her!
