Meet The Amore Team

Meet Cathy Rowland

I am the owner and lead travel designer at Amore Travel Designs. Travel is my passion and that is why I became a luxury travel designer.  Travel creates such exceptional memories and experiences, while connecting us to different cultures.  I am a mother of 3 grown children, I have 4 beautiful grandchildren and my love of my life is my best friend, my husband. 

I’ve always loved to travel. Travel inspires discovery—to incredible destinations, warm and friendly people, to delicious cuisines and breathtaking landscapes. 

But above all, I think travel is about connecting to the ones you travel with, whether it’s your family, your cherished friends, or your spouse. 

Meet Amber Phipps

Born and raised in Colorado with the wonderful mountain scenery in my own backyard, I learned to appreciate the beauty in our world at an early age.  I fell in love with travel when I was a young child and have never looked back. 

Since then, I have lived in three different countries and traveled to six continents and over forty-one unique locations across the globe. 

Immersing myself in many varied cultures, has formed the person I am today. I never come home from a trip without bringing some of that culture with me. It’s more than a souvenir to sit on my shelf, but rather a personal change—a growth in my understanding of myself and others. 

As a travel advisor, my focus is on luxury and high-end wellness travel—adventures that feed not only your body, but your soul. Why not come back from your next vacation feeling recharged and ready to face whatever comes before you? Let me help you find your best adventure yet. I guarantee you’ll come home with more than just a fabulous photo to hang on your wall. You’ll come home with memories of people and places that will last a lifetime. Let’s do this.

Meet Jessica Swanson

I am new to the travel industry and I’m so excited to get busy! I’ve been a hairstylist for 27 years and I love working with people and figuring out how to make them happy. I’ve been passionate about travel my whole life and have made a hobby of finding great vacations for friends. I’ve traveled through Western Europe, I lived in Ireland, and have family in the UK. I also love a great beach vacation when I want to relax. I’ve been on several cruises and found that it’s a great way to see many different areas and I’m  focusing on finding the best cruises around the world!

Meet Charlie Layne

Hello, I am Charlie (they/them). I am transitioning to the luxury travel industry from a career in customer service! 

Around 5 years ago I spent a summer in Yellowstone National Park. There I found my True North and I have been exploring ever since!

Discovering new places around the world,  learning from different cultures and creating vibrant relationships are the true wealth we may gain in this life. It is time to break free of your comfort zone; widen your worldview and do so safely with pride! Travel, following the curiosity to explore the planet and oneself, should be for everyone.

 With me as your travel designer, you will immediately feel the passion I have for creating inclusive, safe and sustainable travel experiences for the Queer community.  Adventure is worthwhile and the sky is the limit! With so much world and so little time, let’s travel far, eat well and keep our heads in the clouds.

Meet Dena Osborne

For some travelers, they always want to visit a museum. For others, it’s sparkly souvenir shopping. For me, it’s a food tour!

After visiting more than 30 different countries around the world, I’ve taken an immersive food tour in just about each one. Because one of the best things about going on vacation is indulging in authentic eats.

But it’s not just about the (delicious!) dining.

It’s about seeing how other people live, where their customs come from—and how their cultures stay alive today.

Meet Audrey Pillion

Hey hey! I’m Audrey Pillion and I am originally from Texas but moved to Colorado after graduating and getting married. I have my Bachelor in Fine Arts with a major in photography- and what better way to grow in photography than traveling! Although I am new to the travel industry, I am so excited to work alongside Cathy and learn the best ways to navigate this industry. 

Outside of work, I am always pursuing new passion projects such as furniture flipping, oil painting restoration, and any other creative outlet to put my energy into! I participate in art markets locally and can be found paddle boarding every day in the summer time. 

I am passionate about connecting with people and making them feel welcome, and I can’t wait to mix that with the adventure of travel.
