Becky Kirby

Becky Kirby is the founder of The Greater Go and The Greater Go Foundation and started both entities in 2014 because of a combined love of travel and passion for people with special health or mobility needs.   Becky, whose sister has a physical disability, has over 20 years of experience in the nonprofit disability field.  Becky is a veteran business owner, has traveled both domestically and internationally and has completed several destination and supplier trainings that have increased her knowledge since starting the business.  Under Becky’s leadership, The Greater Go continues to expand by adding home- based travel agents who have specialty areas and who support the mission of The Greater Go Foundation by being a part of The Greater Go and by booking travel for their friends, family and other acquaintances.  Becky lives in Indianapolis with her dog, Wrigley, and can be found enjoying her active neighborhood, working part time at a local winery (just for fun!)  and traveling to learn more about all the destinations The Greater Go can send people to.

 

Kristi Skinner

Kristi Skinner

Kristi Skinner has been with The Greater Go since November 2016 and has more than 15 years of experience in the travel industry.  Her love for travel started back in 7th grade and hasn’t stopped since then. In fact, her Bachelor degree is in Restaurant, Hotel, & Travel Mgmt!

Kristi has been married to her husband, Matt since 2001 and they have one son Brayden. In addition to being one of TGG’s Travel Advisors she also works part-time as a Parent Liaison at About Special Kids, which is a non-profit that helps parents of children with special needs like her son find the medical, educational, and community resources they need to help their children live their best lives. Kristi loves spending time with her family & friends, traveling as much as possible, visiting new wineries, going to the movies, and reading.

Kristi loves helping my clients with all aspects of planning their trips – whether it be individuals, couples, families or groups. She especially loves when someone has a specific experience they are looking for, but didn’t think it was possible or know where to go to make it a reality. Kristi says “the greatest reward for me is to see the photos and hear the feedback my clients share on social media or with me directly.”  Kristi has traveled extensively around the world, and a few of her  specialties are Hawaii and the South Pacific, cruising various cruise lines, along with all-inclusive resorts in Mexico/Caribbean.

Loni Wilson

Loni Wilson

Loni Wilson joined The Greater Go Team in 2018 because she wanted to share her love of seeing the world. This passion began in her childhood during a trip to Washington D.C. where she learned about our country’s history and saw the iconic memorials that before, she had only been able to read about in books or see on TV. It was during her high school spring break trip to Cancun that she was first able to fly on a plane. The excitement of flying above the clouds and being taken to an exotic destination stoked her passion to see the world.

After she met her husband Todd, the adventures continued as they found a love for the outdoors. They are both goal oriented (and a little competitive!) so they set a goal – together they would visit every state in the U.S.!  Each year Loni and Todd also ring in the New Year somewhere new. Past destinations have included all-inclusive resorts in Cabo and Cozumel.  Their next goal is to visit Europe.

Whether it is a luxury vacation, hiking in the mountains, sitting on a beach, experiencing our rich history or hitting up the newest foodie spot, Loni is always ready to try something new. It is no wonder her favorite vacation spot is “a place she has never been to”.  She can’t wait to share her experience to help you find your destination and turn your dreams into reality.

 

Rachael Dick

Ever since Rachael was a little girl she dreamt of visiting far off places. Twelve years ago she made that dream come true and became a flight attendant. It is easily her biggest blessing and to this day every vacation and every adventure is nothing short of a pipe dream. She’s an intrepid traveler with a strong sense of adventure. Her favorite vacations are those that take her off the beaten (sometimes risky) path, giving her the opportunity to experience the area in its most raw and indigenous form. She’s vacationed 11 countries, 4 continents and several states. Right now, everywhere is on her list and if you have somewhere on your list she wants to help make your dreams come true too!

    Rachael resides in Kokomo where she was born and raised. She’s actively involved in her parish at Saint Patrick. Rachael enjoys being with nature so bird watching, hiking, camping and running are just a few of her favorite activities. She loves taking photographs and almost always has her camera in tow. Archery has recently become her new favorite thing to do. Most important is laughing and making memories with her family.
