About Terri Weeks

After a successful career as a mechanical engineer, I made the choice to prioritize my family and left the workforce to raise my three children. During this time, my passion for travel blossomed and I began sharing my experiences through speaking engagements and writing.

Together with a friend, I authored the popular guidebook Adventures Around Cincinnati and have since spoken to countless groups and been featured in numerous media outlets. I have also contributed to various publications including USA TODAY’s 10Best.com and LongWeekends magazine, and wrote a travel blog.

My husband Curtis and I journeyed with our children to all 50 states and over a dozen countries while they were growing up. It was during these travels that I became deeply committed to the idea that travel is an essential part of a child’s education and a powerful tool for strengthening family relationships.

Now, as a travel advisor, I am able to utilize my wealth of experience to help others plan personalized and enriching travel experiences. I am dedicated to helping individuals, couples, and families create lasting memories and valuable connections through travel.

About Big Rock Travel

The name Big Rock Travel was inspired by the classic time management parable about fitting rocks, gravel, and sand into a jar. When you try to put the sand and gravel in first, very few big rocks will fit. The lesson learned is that you have to put the big rocks in first, and then the gravel and sand will fill in around the big rocks.

Big Rock Travel clients recognize travel as a significant aspect of their lives—one of their big rocks. They have ambitious travel dreams and limited time. That’s where I come in. I strive to take the stress of planning off your shoulders, allowing you to focus on the other big rocks in your life.

While I am located in Greater Cincinnati, my clients live all over the United States. I use technology like Zoom and Loom to communicate with my clients so that we can plan a trip together without meeting in person.

Why work with me?

Rather than specializing in a destination or specific type of travel, I specialize in my clients and want to build long-term relationships with them. I invest time in understanding your unique interests, needs, preferences, and travel style.

I plan many different types of trips to many different destinations, domestic and foreign. Whether it’s a family vacation, couple’s getaway, multi-generational gathering, or friend group getaway, I can help. I especially enjoy working on trips with a little adventure and local culture.

Once I have a thorough understanding of your travel preferences, I leverage my expertise, professional resources, and insider connections to identify the best suppliers for each component of your trip. While I may not be a destination expert for every location, I have an extensive network of suppliers who are, and I’ll use this network to ensure you have access to the best local experiences, accommodations, transportation, and more. I take care of all the details, from start to finish. Additionally, I provide insurance options to protect your investment and give you peace of mind.

One of the key benefits of working with me is that I work proactively with my trusted supplier partners to ensure that your trip goes as smoothly as possible. But in the rare event that something does go wrong, you can count on me to be there for you, providing assistance and advocacy to help you navigate any unexpected challenges.

Overall, I want to be your trusted Travel Advisor, not just an agent. As we continue to work together over time, I can recommend experiences that are perfectly suited for you that you might not have considered.

With my personalized approach, expertise, and commitment to your satisfaction, I’m confident that I can help you achieve your travel goals and enrich your life.
