RACHEL DORSEY, Supporting Cast Travel

Through Valparaiso University, Rachel Dorsey spent a semester abroad in Cambridge, England, which stoked her passion for travel and adventure. In the last 15 years, Rachel has visited over twenty countries, including completing a four-month backpacking trip through the Asia Pacific-Rim region and living for a year in Japan. Rachel has worked in the study abroad industry for six years and has also started her own travel company, Supporting Cast Travel, which seeks to get women out and exploring the world together.



Chelle Roberts is the founding editor of BrownGirlsFly – a travel site offering practical travel tips, destination profiles, and inspiring traveler stories.  Her goal is to inspire as many women as possible — especially women of color — to travel more frequently and to places further outside their comfort zones.  Chelle’s obsession with culture, foreign languages, art & design, nature, sea animals, and good food means she is game for adventure. From the beach to the mountains, an urban vibe to a sleepy little village, her motto is “have passport, will travel!”



ANNA LABAT, Greenheart Travel

Anna Labat began her international adventures as a 16 year old in Benalmadena, Spain. Since then, she has traveled extensively around Europe and South America (mostly as a sole woman traveler) and is now the Director of the Chicago-based cultural exchange organization, Greenheart Travel. She not-so-surprisingly married a French guy and together they travel – with their now 7 month old – back to France and around the country regularly.
