André Koester

André has loved to travel for as long as she can remember and was truly bitten by the travel bug when she lived in both Italy and France during her junior year in college and then in Japan for two years after graduation.  Every weekend was a new adventure.

André received a BA from Davidson College in Economics and an MBA from the Tuck School at Dartmouth.  She worked in brand management at Colgate-Palmolive before deciding to turn her passion into a career.

André lives in Bronxville, NY with her husband and 4 sons.  She is a member of the Children’s Health Leadership Council at Mount Sinai and a Board Member of Graham Windham in New York.

Passionate about planning trips for families, André loves watching how travel opens children’s eyes and gives them a sense of perspective that is hard to gain otherwise.  In addition to planning the perfect family trip, André also realizes how important it is for busy parents to have a chance to reconnect with each other alone, so one of her specialties is planning romantic adult getaways.
