COURSE: “So, You Want to be a TRAVEL WRITER AKA: How do I get a FREE Trip?”


Thank you for all of your support and interest in my travels. Many of you have asked me how to get started so I decided to build my first interactive course, “So, You Want to be a Travel Writer, AKA- How do I get a FREE Trip?

We will work together in six modules on skills from writing, video, social media, press trips, networking, travel conferences to interviews with travel professionals including magazine editors, travel writers and PR teams from luxury hotels, tour companies and destinations.

I have been a traveler all of my life and am fascinated by new places. I worked for seven years onboard cruise ships and backpacked for three years in Asia. I am honored that many hotels, destinations, PR firms and tour companies have invited me to share their stories. 

I have a Masters in Education and have been teaching for decades; I even worked at Nickelodeon. I am a highly requested speaker and recently spoke at the Scuba Show, the Southern Travelers Explore Conference, Metro Women’s Leadership Summit and Women in Travel Conference.

I hope you will join me for this brand new adventure! There will be tips, tricks and many chances to ask me questions as well as community discussions, support and maybe even an ongoing Facebook group and the chance to travel with me or publish on my website.

It will be a small group of students so I can perfect the material. Click here if you’re interested in joining this small group.
