Michele MacDonald lives in a tight-knit community in gorgeous Northwest Arkansas with her husband and three teenage daughters. Michele has always had a passion for travel, going back to family roots in the Philippines, where she would visit her mother’s relatives. Michele’s father had a job that required a lot of travel, and she would join him on adventures to Bermuda, Hawaii and other destinations in the Caribbean. Those experiences gave her a thirst for adventure from a very young age.
Michele spent many years planning trips for her friends and family on the side, just for fun. After an unforgettable experience on a trip to Cabo San Lucas in Mexico, where Michele and her girlfriends became stranded in a hurricane and were extracted from the country in a secret rescue mission, her reputation as a travel guru with connections and a talent for planning spread. Soon after, The Core Traveler was born.
Ever since then, Michele has worked with clients across North America to design itineraries that have brought them to far-off places all around the globe.
