Our People

Jennifer Spatz

Founder and CEO

A cultural anthropologist at heart, I founded Global Family Travels with the mission to “Learn, Serve and Immerse,” using travel as a means to build cultural bridges and to foster global citizens.  Through living abroad in six countries from a young age, my most powerful memories come from the family vacations we took.  Together with my parents and two brothers, we experienced many diverse cultures and made new friends, opening our hearts and minds to those we met. These travel encounters forged a deep bond among my family members and instilled values that may have been hard to learn otherwise.  More about Jennifer Spatz here.

​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.

Customer Liaison 

Travel is one of the most profound ways to change yourself both physically and psychologically.I have found that better than any medication, it heals the soul and has a tremendous impact on well-being. Having lived and worked in many different countries, the experiences and connections I've gained have brought substantial depth to my life and to understanding my place in this world. Global Family Travels aligns with my mission to learn and heal ourselves through travel. Together, we strive to help others collect memories and connections which make us all better global citizens.
