    Extraordinary Utahns | Tippe Morlan


    We are introducing a new feature that shines a light on the work and awesomeness being done by some extraordinary Utahns. Our first extraordinary Utahn is Tippe Morlan, city planner, and travel extraordinaire [which really fits with the title of this column, Extraordinary Utahns]. Tippe has visited 67 countries, 40 states, and all 7 continents – and she is a speaker at tomorrow's
    TEDx Salt Lake City event.

    You can snag tickets to listen to Tippe and the other speakers at TEDx Salt Lake City here.

    Born and raised in Hawaii, Tippe Morlan moved to Utah in 2010 after finishing a BS in Urban Planning at the University of Southern California. She became passionate about tourism planning and cultural preservation while volunteering at the Thai Community Development Center in Los Angeles. She discovered travel hacking in graduate school which quickly became her biggest hobby. She began traveling the world on mistake fares, credit card points, and airline miles and loves sharing her passion for cheap travel.

    Tippe has visited 67 countries, 40 states, and all 7 continents since graduate school, all while maintaining a full-time desk job. She currently works as a Senior Planner for the City of Saratoga Springs and serves as Vice-Chair for the International Division and Assistant Professional Development Officer for the Utah Chapter of the American Planning Association. Tippe is also producing a podcast called Just One More Trip with the goal of making travel more accessible to all.
