President / Executive Travel Consultant
Catherine "Cathy" Sanchez is the President and Executive Travel Consultant at Easy Escapes Travel. Leading an amazing team of travel experts throughout the US, Cathy is very proud to be the Founder of this award-winning, full service travel agency.
Easy Escapes Travel provides expert travel agents dedicated to helping clients create life-long vacation memories since 1999. The agency is licensed, bonded, insured and an A+ member of the BBB. Named "The Platinum Apple Vacations Agency" for 2014 and 2015, they thrive on loyal repeats and referral business. Their market niche is tropical and all-inclusive getaways including luxury vacations, destination weddings, romance vacations, boutique hotels, all inclusive vacations, and family vacations.
Cathy has a management degree from Pace University in NYC. After graduation she realized that operating a travel agency would be ideal. She would get to see the world and help others fulfill their vacation dreams. She remembers doodling the name of her company “Easy Escapes” while sitting in her cubicle when she worked for a financial firm situated on the 77th floor of the World Trade Center. In June 2001, she took a leap of faith and decided to launch full time as a travel agency.
Her clients range from the busy corporate executives who have little time to plan a romantic getaway to the multi-generation family looking to reunite on the perfect tropical island. For some, it's their very first time out of the country and for others; they are simply crossing trips off their bucket list.
Cathy loves the travel industry. It seems every day there's a new hotel being built or an up and coming destination to discover. Taking personal vacations is not just about having a great time but it also serves as a learning experience for her to pass onto her team and clients when designing their dream vacation.
