HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — A local family suffered a big loss, their dog passed away last November.
But, a California business owner is helping them get a fresh start. They recently met at Harrisburg International Airport.
“We have been waiting so long for this dream to come true for us,” Keishla Rodriguez said.

For much of 2020, Shelly-Ann Cawley has lived out of the proverbial suitcase. She is CEO of Los Angeles-based Travelers Care which transports at-risk flight passengers across North America and her native Jamaica.
Based on favourable response in Jamaica, Cawley is looking to expand her venture to the Eastern Caribbean and Guyana. Like Jamaica, the region is a hub for seniors and minors traveling to and from North America. Many of them need supervision which is where Travelers Care comes in.
Have you ever thought of having a personalized travel companion?

THE complications of COVID-19 have changed the course of travel between Jamaica and key destinations like the United States. Some Jamaicans who live overseas have been stranded due to flight restrictions, mainly in the US and Canada.
Jamaican Shelly-Ann Cawley is head of Travelers Care, a Los Angeles-based company that accompanies seniors and minors on flights to and from the US and Canada.
On July 3, Shelly-Ann Cawley packed her bags and travel documents in order to accompany her 11 year-old relative Amyah Cawley from Ontario, California to Dallas, Texas.
It was the first assignment for Travelers Care --- the company she started in January, 2019 --- since relaunching in early June.
Like many fledgling businesses, Travelers Care has been hit even harder due to COVID-19. Because it specialises in assisting seniors, minors and the health-challenged by plane, the airline industry is its lifeblood.
LOS ANGELES – Heading into 2020, Shelly Ann Cawley had more reason to ring in the new year. Her company, Travelers Care, celebrated its first anniversary and the Jamaican entrepreneur was looking to expand her fledgling enterprise.
Despite multiple safety measures by airlines to appease passengers, traveling by plane is still stressful for many people. Last year, a Jamaican in Los Angeles launched a company to provide personal assistance to the reluctant flyer.
LOS ANGELES, USA – What started as a humanitarian gesture has evolved into a promising business venture for Shelly-Ann Cawley, a Jamaican who lives in Los Angeles. A 20-year veteran of the airline and leisure industries, she operates Travelers Care which provides comprehensive assistance to the flight-challenged.
Every day, we have to jump over numerous hurdles as well as overcome various challenges. In addition, if you are a black woman living in a ‘white’ country, you know that history hasn’t been on your side. However, for every story of opposition and struggles, there are many instances of determination, sticktoitiveness and courage. We have seen many strong black women who have fought against all odds and took it upon themselves to recreate the image. An example of such a woman is Shelly-Ann Cawley. We won’t be surprised if you’ve already heard the story of this purpose-driven lady.
