Company Overview

Carpe Diem Traveler is a Chicago based company founded by Susie Chau in 2016 that helps high-achieving professionals be intentional with their time off work to avoid burnout and renew their zest for life.

After taking a year long sabbatical from her management consulting career and visiting all seven continents with her husband, she was inspired to help others live out their travel dreams.

Carpe Diem Traveler creates customized trips from weekend getaways to sabbaticals that save clients time, reduce stress, and maximize the "life" in their work-life balance.
