Meet The Founder

I'm Kara Cederquist, CEO and Founder of Escape to Pensacola and Beyond.

After graduating from UCF with a double major in Event and Hospitality Management I traveled the world, in search of cultural immersion, vibrant colors, smiles, and responsible tour companies. I realize my expertise on the industry is a powerful gift that deserves to be shared for others to benefit from. So in 2017 with my hometown waves lapping against my feet, I dove right in to my dreams. I'm passionate about sunshine, making a difference through sustainable tourism, guacamole, and showing love to the world and its' people.
