At Ker & Downey, we believe that people matter. It’s the people who make up this incredible company who work to make your journey truly memorable. Over the course of the next year, we’ll be introducing you to the people that make up Ker & Downey. You can also read more about us here.

Bekah McNeel, a native Texan, started traveling the world while in college in Los Angeles. For graduate school she headed to the London School of Economics for an MSc in Media and Communication, and it was from that hub that her globetrotting really began. Research, philanthropic work, and a thirst for adventure have taken Bekah all over the world. In 2010 she met an architect whose wanderlust matched her own, and married him straight away. They live in San Antonio with their daughter where the international airport is small, but gets the job done. When their travel budget doesn’t allow for grand tours of the world’s architectural wonders, they pack up their tent and head for a National Park in the US or South America.
