Hi, I’m Katie.
I help people plan vacations to San Diego. Through my network, I also give people access to discounted theme park tickets (including exclusive promo codes) and value-added perks at luxury hotels worldwide.
We live in La Jolla, a seaside community in San Diego. I started La Jolla Mom as a place to write about lifestyle and motherhood topics (hence the name). It ballooned into a travel business after I started to include tips from our lives as ex-pats in Hong Kong and London — we often flew with a baby and lived in a luxury hotel.
Next, readers started to ask for San Diego travel advice, and we became a top San Diego family travel resource. We have four of the world’s best theme parks and are close to others in California.
My family still travels a lot and stays in nice hotels that I review. I love hotels and have a keen eye for what a stay should be like.
So that’s why you’ll mostly find four main topics woven throughout the site: San Diego vacations, theme parks, luxury hotel reviews, and recaps of our personal travels worldwide — with a handful of lifestyle tips sprinkled in.
