Team Ourisman

We are a privately-owned, award-winning luxury travel agency affiliated with Brownell Travel, the first travel agency in the US. Ourisman Travel specializes in luxury hotels and villas, cruises, safaris, and highly personalized itinerary design. Through our exclusive partnership with Virtuoso, luxury hotels, and specialty travel partners around the world, we’re able to offer our clients exceptional value-added amenities and VIP experiences during their trip.

We prefer the title “travel advisor” instead of “travel agent” because we strive to provide personalized, curated experiences for our clients. Our goal is to give you the best access and experiences possible by becoming experts in your travel style and leveraging our partnerships with experts in the top luxury travel products and destinations around the world.

Meg Langrehr, Sales Coordinator & Social Media Specialist

Courtney Sanak, Sales Coordinator
Travel Personality = The Adventurer

Although new to Ourisman Travel, Courtney has been in the industry since 2017 and specializes in crafting itineraries that fit each client’s unique needs and preferences. She has a sharp eye for detail – anticipating things clients may not have realized they need. She dots all the I’s and crosses all the T’s of a trip. “No” is not a word in Courtney’s vocabulary, especially when it comes to traveling to new places. As an avid hiker, animal lover, and amateur photographer, she loves adventure travel and exploring off-the-beaten-path destinations. Courtney’s favorite destinations include Chile, Iceland, Peru & South Africa. She hopes to one day visit Australia, Ecuador, New Zealand & East Africa.

David Ourisman, CEO & FounderDavid Ourisman
Travel Personality = The Connector

Establishing Ourisman Travel was David Ourisman’s birthday present to himself in 2006. David loves the travel experience of being in a different culture, learning new languages and accents, and opening up to new cuisines. While he’s still very much a part of the team behind the scenes, David entered semi-retirement in 2016 to allow himself more time to travel, cultivate relationships with our global partners, write about his passion for luxury travel and share his insights and expertise on FlyerTalk. Outside of travel, he loves nature, photography, and hiking in the woods. David has been to Paris more than a dozen times and he “could go back a dozen more.” Morocco, Greece, and the mountains in southern China are on his bucket list!
