Sarah - Founder

Hi! I’m Sarah, but everyone calls me Smack. I’m a Financial Analyst by trade but my true passion (beyond finance) lies in travel. O The Place’s We’ll Go is a project I’ve started to share my love of travel. When I’m not trying to cram trips into my 2 week annual vacation time I enjoy boating, spending time with my amazing friends, and planning future adventures!


Emily - Marketing Strategist & contributor

Emily here! Chicago based and always on the hunt for my next adventure.  I caught the travel bug while studying in Dublin, Ireland.  Since then I've been following the wind, and I can't wait to see where it blows me next.

Hi! My name is Kelsey and I'm a full-time writer in Manhattan. For me, nothing beats adding a new stamp to your passport or finally seeing that monument from your Pinterest board up close and personal. Though I currently reside in New York, I'm a complete Anglophile and know the Tube Underground map like the back of my hand.

Luc - Contributor

Hello, my name is Luc. I attended Kendall College of Art and Design (More realistically KCAD) for collaborative and industrial design. Having parents from different countries has helped to instill a passion of travel and exploration in me, and has gleaned me dual citizenship. Working and learning abroad have been wonderful opportunities and I look forward to sharing those experiences with you.

Ashley - Contributor

Hello! My name is Ashley, and I'm a soon-to-be graduate from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I realized my love for travel when I was fifteen, living with a host family in Japan. When I'm not getting lost in translation, you can find me whipping up a new recipe, practicing photography, or expanding my vinyl collection.
