I flew in a helicopter and landed in the Grand Canyon!

I went skiing outside of the USA for the first time and loved the slopes at Lake Louise Resort and Banff Sunshine Village in Canada. I even crossed the continental divide! I went to Montreal for the first time, hula-hooped on the Rocky Mountaineer and went to my first drive-in in Toronto!

I wrote articles for AARP, Robb Report, Ski Utah, Scuba Diver Life, Wharton Magazine and the Jewish Journal.

I was nominated for three more Press Club Awards for stories for Smithsonian, Saturday Evening Post and Popsugar!
