Todd Poth

Todd Poth

Position: Owner
Email: todd@planmygetaway.com

Todd is very proud to be from Ohio. But he also likes to point out that sometimes the “from” is the important part. After first exploring the world as an exchange student to Germany, Todd attended and then graduated from THE Ohio State university in 1995 with a double major in chemistry and German. He immediately took some time to travel the world, determined to set his degrees aside for a bit. He spent nearly seven years of living outside the United States and working an eclectic group of jobs with titles including dive guide, lumberjack, hostel manager, kiwi fruit picker, and bartender. In 2002, after years of traveling that world, Todd came to Tahoe and has never left (with the exception of a fun vacation, or two). He loves the outdoors and making sure other visitors enjoy the area as much as he does. From tour guide to concierge to publisher of the largest IN-ROOM magazine in the Reno/Tahoe area, his choice of careers demonstrates his passion for the Sierra. Now with three young kids, he’s busier than ever, but still dedicated to the tourist lifestyle.

Meghan Burk

Meghan Burk

Position: Getaway Navigator

From the start, Meghan’s passion has always been sharing new experiences from one coast to the next. As a west coast transplant from Vermont, she makes a good argument as to why she can say she’s from Tahoe. As the vice president of operations and, more importantly, a Getaway navigator she combines her passion for content creation with her desire for adventure. When you can’t find Meghan clicking away on her computer at her favorite coffee shop or wine bar, you might spot her on a mountain peak, hanging from a rock wall, or floating on water. Through her work, she aims to inspire others to try new things, take chances and not take life so seriously. She smiles a lot and hopes you will too.

Everything happens for a reason.

Position: Getaway Navigator
Email: bethelcommunicationandevents@gmail.com

As a young girl, Heidi Bethel would compose newsletters and stories about the goings on in Elko, the small northeastern Nevada town she grew up in. After graduating high school, she moved to the big city to pursue her degree in journalism from the University of Nevada, Reno.

Today, she enjoys exploring the Sierra and many adventures with her husband, their two young sons, and sweet puppy. A foodie at heart, Bethel loves all the delicious eats in the area, but perhaps her most favorite aspect are the magnificent sunsets and sights to see in Reno/Tahoe and beyond. As Getaway’s senior copy editor, she encourages visitors to get out there and truly experience all this region has to offer.

A few quotes to live by:

Fill you life with adventures, not things. Have stories to tell, not stuff to show.

Blessed are the curious, as they shall have adventures.
