Introducing Our New Team Members – Nick & Mikhala!
I’ve managed the day to day affairs of Thriftytraveler.com going on three years. Thankfully, the site has grown to a point where I can pass the baton on to a new team, which can produce far more content than I could ever do on my own. I will still be posting periodically to the main site, but I’ll be focusing more on Thrifty Traveler Premium, our flight deal subscription service. Expect the new team to bring you more content and flight deals than ever before. Let me introduce you to Nick & Mikhala!
Nick Serati – Editor-in-Chief
Nick began writing for Thrifty Traveler in 2016 in a part time role. In January 2018, he joined the Thrifty Traveler team full time to become the Editor-in-Chief. Based out of Minneapolis, MN, Nick previously traveled extensively for work honing his Thrifty Traveler skills. He has been an avid collector of points and miles in 2009, and has amassed over 5 million points. These miles have afforded him and his wife Abbey many trips all over the world.
Nick developed a love for travel at a young age. His dad was a franchisee for a national restaurant chain that had conventions & meetings all over the United States in which Nick often got to tag along.
When Nick is not working, he is likely planning his next vacation, using points & miles of course.
Mikhala Stutzman – Editor
Mikhala began writing for Thrifty Traveler in February 2018. After studying abroad in 4 different countries in college, this Iowa born-and-raised girl moved to Chongqing, China for a year and fell in love with Chinese landscape, language, and most importantly, food! Her favorite city to travel to is Chiang Mai, Thailand.
Her top thrifty tip is to screenshot maps, addresses, and restaurant names in the native language while still on WiFi to confidently maneuver while you’re out and about. Don’t let your dreams be dreams: go book that flight deal and see the world!
