Meet Our Explorers

Chief Exploration Officer/President


Taegan is a sixth-generation Montanan and a member of the Sons and Daughters of the Montana Pioneers. She grew up in the mountains of Montana and spent her early years living on-site at her grandfather’s “Frontier Town,” a once famed western pioneer fort city and tourism destination west of Helena. This is where Taegan’s passion for Montana tourism, travel, and hospitality was born. During the winter months when Frontier Town was closed, she was fortunate to get to travel abroad with her family, igniting a love and deep appreciation for other countries, cultures, and people.

A member of The Luxury Leaders Alliance, an invitation-only community of the top-selling luxury advisors within Travel Leaders Network, Taegan caught the travel bug as a young girl on family vacations and has traveled extensively throughout the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Fiji, the South Pacific, Ireland, and parts of Europe. While she spent time living in Alaska, Nebraska, and Wyoming, her Montana roots eventually pulled her home ten years ago. She is very happily married to her husband of 18 years and together they have three young boys who keep them on their toes.

Enotourism Expert

Sye White

GET LOST Travel is so excited to welcome Sye White on board as our Enotourism Expert. Enotourism refers to tourism whose purpose is or includes the tasting, consumption, or purchase of wine, often at or near the source. Sye’s passion and enthusiasm for all things food, wine and hospitality is contagious as you listen to him talk about a recent trip to France exploring vineyards, restaurants, and hotels. He has dined at many different Michelin restaurants, several top 50 restaurants in the world, and has been a member of the Helena area’s fine dining scene for over a decade.
He will be leading small groups to different wine regions in the world, showing you what is behind a winery’s closed doors, allowing access to learn what they do and how and why they do it. He will be educating our guests about the history of the winery and the grapes that are being used in the making of wine, as well as be giving tours of the cellars, leading vineyard walks, and seeking opportunities to take part in an active part of the harvest. And of course, tasting a wide range of wine, sometimes with the very makers themselves. (picture taken at Jean-Luc Colombo’s vineyard in the Northern Rhone Valley / Cornas)

Bernice Hernandez

Born in Mexico City, Bernice Hernandez knew at a young age that she had big dreams to pursue in the world and at the tender age of 16, she moved to Chicago to start making them come true. With grit and tenacity, she learned English and within three years was a customer service and gate agent with American Airlines. This led to over 20 years of experience in the travel industry between working for Rail Europe as a travel consultant to a travel advisor and assistant team leader with GOGO Worldwide Vacations. When it comes to customer service, Bernice is one of the best. She is a problem solver and is dedicated, dependable and always happy to help with a smile. When she’s not globetrotting, she can be found in the kitchen cooking up amazing feasts for her family and exploring different cultures through her culinary creations. Bernice has been happily married to her sweet husband of 19 years. They share a 17-year-old daughter who is the light of their lives, alongside their fluffy canine baby, and she still lives in The Windy City.

Carolyn Whitmer

Carolyn Whitmer joins the GET LOST Travel team from Wolf Point, Montana. Adventure and a love of the great outdoors was instilled in her growing up hiking, biking, waterskiing, boating, and camping in the great state of Montana as well as many of our National Parks. She is also an avid skier who has skied at over 40 resorts in the U.S. and Canada.
She’s a history lover, gardening enthusiast, gastronome aficionado, baking wizard, wine connoisseur, your shop-till-you-drop gal pal, and most importantly – an amazing mother to her young daughter Olivia.
Being naturally detail oriented with lots of travel experience, Carolyn had a knack for planning travel itineraries for her friends and family. Becoming a travel advisor has been a long time in the making, with many of her friends and family telling her “You should do this for a living”. Although she has a degree in Landscape Horticulture from Ohio State University, where she is an active alumni, she decided to take some time to invest in educating herself about the travel industry and has decided to take the leap and make it official! We are so excited to welcome her to the GET LOST Travel family.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
