President & Founder
Catherine "Cathy" Sanchez is the President and Founder of 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's team of dedicated destination experts include Travel Consultants, Escape Artists, and Luxury Travel Advisors experienced with designing dream vacations for over 20 years. The agency is licensed, bonded, insured and A+ rated with the BBB. Proudly named a "Platinum Apple Vacations Agency" since 2014 and a "Presidents Club" Agency with Vacation Express, Easy Escapes thrives on loyal repeats and referral business. Although they have travel experts who design vacations in every destination across the globe, their niche is tropical all-inclusive escapes including luxury boutique vacations, destination weddings, honeymoons, and family vacations.
Cathy holds a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Pace University in NYC. After graduation and with an entrepreneurial drive, she envisioned starting a business that would allow her to see the world and help others fulfill their vacations dreams and "Escape". She remembers first doodling the name of her soon to be company, “Easy Escapes” while sitting in her cubicle when she worked for a financial firm on the 77th floor of the World Trade Center. In June 2001, she took a leap of faith and decided to launch Easy Escapes full time.
Her personal clients range from busy corporate executives who have little time to plan the perfect romantic getaway to the multi-generation family looking to make some lifelong memories by reuniting on a tropical island but don't have the international connections or even know how to start piecing it all together. For some, it's their very first time out of the country, and for others; they are simply crossing experiences off their long bucket list.
Cathy has a passion for the ever-changing travel industry and says “It seems every day there's a new resort being built or an up and coming destination to discover. Taking personal vacations is no longer just about me having a great time but it also serves as a learning experience to pass onto my team and to my clients when crafting their dream vacation”.
