Periquito Adventures & Travel
[/lab_heading][vc_column_text]Building friendships, mending souls, and healing hearts…​ ​one epic adventure at a time!

To understand Periquito Adventures & Travel, you first need to know the story of Susie and Morgan Langley. Married for nearly 30 years, they traveled the world together, making life-long friendships, collecting memories, and photographing some of the most scenic and magical places they could find. Morgan loved adventure and adrenaline… he even raced motorcycles for many years in Baja California. His Mexican racing friends called him “Periquito” (Spanish for little parrot, because he could talk… A LOT!).

Sadly, a tragic traffic accident took Morgan’s life in September of 2017. In the months that followed, Susie founded Periquito Adventures & Travel in his honor, lifting up his memory as she shares their wanderlust with all who wish to experience it.

Periquito Adventures & Travel focuses exclusively on taking small groups to beautiful places to do amazing things! You will get to see and do things with P.A.T. that you will not get access to with independent or large-group travel. Susie does all the legwork for you to create a safe, organized, fun, and flexible way to see the world. Moreover, the shared experiences realized through small-group travel promotes true and lasting friendships and are designed to expand your world and feed your soul.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][lab_heading title=”Lori Kurszewski”]MA, LAT, NBC-HWC, CEAS

My education to become a certificated athletic trainer was primarily Western-based, with little exposure to alternative, complementary, or integrative practices. However, I became quite ill in 2011. When my personal health concerns showed little improvement with traditional medical care, I began exploring other means of healing. I personally utilized acupuncture, deep breathing exercises, herbs, dietary changes and Qi Gong to achieve results with asthma, hives, allergies and sinus infections. I also realized the impact emotions can have on anyone’s overall health. These successes lead me into the emerging field of health and wellness coaching, which allows me to partner with you, to explore and discover the best ways for you to realize your best health and healing. I look forward to holistically exploring your inherent, healing wisdom and your mind-body-spirit connections.

When not health & wellness coaching, I enjoy bicycling, nature walks, arts and crafts projects, gardening, and travel adventures.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”1444″ img_size=”358×500″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″ css=”.vc_custom_1574277187276{padding-top: 25px !important;}”][vc_single_image image=”1445″ img_size=”358×500″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][lab_heading title=”Kathy Steele”]DNP, MA, BSN, NBC-HWC, CDR/NC/USN/RET

I believe each of us are responsible for, and in charge of, our own healing journeys and wellbeing. How we utilize our innate power to stay in balance as we journey is up to us. I am a believer in the idea that we are what we think, eat, and do (an integrative approach). To me, coaching is a natural extension of seeking health, wellness, and well-being, a process with which I have much experience through my career in nursing. The health & wellness model and the cairn construct make personal sense to me. My own life journey has not always been done in balance and it has led me to seek and emulate the cairn model while helping others to do the same. One of the ways that I experience a real personal sense of wellbeing is being in nature and with animals, especially horses.

I have been blessed with many callings (military nursing, teaching clinical nursing, being a graduate student in Integrative Nursing and Health & Wellness Coaching; and being a wife, mother, and friend). I come from a long lineage of cowboys and military members so perhaps that colors my positive mindset about life…the “can do” spirit. My purpose has been and continues to be about serving others and empowering others to experience an improved quality of life, health, and wellbeing.

Coaching individually (and in groups) allows me the privilege of sharing in the growth experience and “ah-ha!” moments of others. I advocate the top-down approach when looking at what life brings and exploring everything with curiosity. These attitudes let us see life through a much broader lens and they can often lead to new and different options when selecting a path forward in life situations. Ultimately, these approaches can result in a sense of balance and wellbeing.

I love being with people and watching them grow and immerse themselves in curiosity about how they live their lives and then move towards what they would like to do differently. Let’s explore that process together![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][lab_heading title=”Chef Ivan & Chef Anne”]Culinary Enthusiasts and Private Chefs, and
