Founder and CEO
Through living abroad in six countries from a young age, my most powerful memories are from the family vacations we took. Together, my family experienced many diverse cultures and made new friends, opening our hearts and minds to those we met, and with each other. These travel experiences forged a deep bond among my family members and instilled values that may have been hard to learn otherwise. More about Jennifer Spatz here.
Manager, Africa & Seattle Sustainable Community Tours
Having traveled throughout the world, I have become transformed. I believe that travel is a means to build bridges of awareness while inspiring people to grow through exposure and engagement, appreciate from connecting, and reciprocate through compassion. This is what we do at Global Family Travels through our focus on Learn, Serve, and Immerse.
Peta Karabus Mehlman
Family Adventure Planner
Travel has been an integral part of my life, both personally and professionally. I was born and raised in South Africa, and have lived in Israel, Canada, England, and the United States. And for more than 30 years, I have helped people experience the wonders of travel with their families.
I design unique trips for families to explore the world and learn about new cultures. I have always viewed travel as education that takes place outside of the classroom, which is why I am excited to join forces with Global Family Travels, a company that shares my vision.
