Mary Cecchini

FOUNDER & CHIEF TRAVEL DESIGNER

The first thing you should know about Mary is that she gets stuff done. She started the company in 2013 after leaving full-time life in corporate America and an epic 5-month solo trek through Europe. Part of her success in the corporate world was seeing the big picture and creating a path to get from one place to another.

This has translated into Living Big Travel, where she considers the whole person, not just a trip, when designing adventures for clients. An avid traveler herself, she values finding community wherever you are and saying “why not” more often than “why.”

Outside of travel, you can find Mary enjoying her hometown of Portland, Oregon, exploring Mt.Hood on snowshoes or a paddle board, hosting dinner parties with her husband, loving on her adorable nieces and nephew, and spending time with family and friends.

Bailey Smith

OPERATIONS GURU & TRAVEL DESIGNER

Bailey discovered her love for travel in her teens and has jumped at every opportunity to experience other cultures ever since. She believes that with each new experience we have, we move closer to our most authentic selves.

Her passion for making memories translates into her work. She brings her ninja communication and organization skills to every trip planned because she knows that details are what makes things happen.

After living in Germany for two years, Bailey and her husband are now settled in Salem, Oregon. When she’s not browsing for the best flight deals or photographing quintessential European towns, she loves swimming, eating sushi, and spending time with friends and family.
