My travel interests include culture, history, recreational activities, happy hours and locavore-inspired food. I meet deadlines, enjoy the editorial process, and am available for FAM tours and working with travel and tourism organizations.
My professional life is a balance of freelance writing for various travel magazines and Small Town Washington, where I share my passion for small town travel. I am a regular contributor to Bainbridge Island Magazine, Experience Anacortes, The Crossing Guide, WaggonerGuide.com, WanderWithWonder.com, Whidbey Life Magazine, and write for RealFoodTraveler.com and Northwest Travel & Life Magazine.
I am the founder and sole contributor to Small Town Washington.com & Beyond, a travel site dedicated to lodging, dining, and activities in small towns.
For the Wabash County Tourism & Visitors Bureau, I rewrote new copy from old press releases, which included fact-checking and historical research, for Wabash County Visitors Guide, Vol. 10.
Since 2011, I have been on the editorial team as a fact-checker, researcher, and proofreader for the annual boating guidebook the Waggoner Cruising Guide.
