I focus on boutique or historic hotels and inns, soft adventure (hiking, zip line, biking), culinary travel and experiences (local food and flavors, wine, beer, cider, food tours), luxury and budget travel, historic destinations (such as museums, historic spots like lighthouses, castles, homes, forts), and dog-friendly travel.

I meet deadlines, enjoy the editorial process, and am available for FAM tours and working with travel and tourism organizations.

Who I’ve Worked With



Find My Work

I have been freelancing for over five years and write for travel and lifestyle magazines as well as Small Town Washington & Beyond where I share my passion for small town travel. I have over 100 published articles and my work can be found at Bainbridge Island Magazine, Experience Anacortes,  The Crossing Guide,  Whidbey Life Magazine,  RealFoodTraveler.com, Meeting News Northwest, Northwest Travel & Life Magazine, Travel Life Magazine, and WaggonerGuide.comWanderWithWonder.com. I have also provided content for Family Vacation Critic and worked for Moon Travel Guides.

I am the Founder and Editor of Small Town Washington.com & Beyond, a travel site dedicated to lodging, dining, and activities in small towns. This unique niche focuses on the entire small town experience (lodging, dining, adventure, history, local life) to inspire visitors to explore small towns in their travels. Its viewership is looking for slower-paced travel experiences, the ability to connect with locals, unique and budget lodging, and the history and food culture of a location.
