Meet Your Travel Advisor
Hi, I'm Kim Maurer. I am the founder of Mosaic Shores Travel Co. I strongly believe that vacations and time away with those that matter to you is one of the most important things in life. One that we all put on the back-burner far too often.
Everyone that knows me knows that I am a lover of all things oceans and islands. Which is probably not a surprise to you by now. I am also a chaser of their colorful and peaceful sunrises and sunsets. I was introduced to them when I was 18 and living near the North Shore on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. I would wake up early each morning to watch the stunning sun rise over the endless ocean. An image that is still so vividly with me today and is probably why I am drawn to witness as many sunrises and sunsets as I possibly can.
My love for travel began on those sandy shores of Hawaii. Traveling brings excitement to my life. It makes me happy … the discoveries, the dazzling shades of blue, the perfect starry skies, the local foods to devour, the breathtaking drives to the hidden beaches, the history and stories behind each place I visit, the new connections made along the way, and most importantly, the people with whom I travel with ~ there is absolutely nothing better!
It is my personal goal to help my clients experience all of these things – and MORE!
I would love the opportunity to help you discover your next sunrise or sunset.

I help my clients break away to enhance and revitalize their most important relationships.
I want my clients to experience their favorite vacation … every time they travel.

I'm here to help others experience new places and new adventures, to create unforgettable memories, and to check off as many squares on their bucket lists as possible.
