Kerwin McKenzie –


I currently “live” in Houston, TX. I’m originally from Jamaica. I worked in the airline industry from 1994 to 2011 and love every second of it. I’ve visited 125 countries/territories and flown on 180 airlines. Today, I help airline employees, their families and friends manage their airline flight benefits. In addition, I help travelers like yourself with understanding and managing travel loyalty programs.
