Kate O’Brien graduated in May of 2012 from Marist College in New York where she studied information technology and accounting. Kate caught the travel bug early in life while enjoying countless vacations with her family, including trips to Hawaii, Canada and the Caribbean. She also spent the spring semester of her junior year studying abroad in Florence, which she regarded as the most rewarding semester of her college career. Some of Kate's other memorable trips from her time in Europe include Italy’s Amalfi Coast, Corfu, the French Riviera and Munich. In October of 2015, Kate travelled to Cape Town, South Africa with The Points Guy while filming TPGtv and (not surprisingly) found her new favorite travel destination.
