With many years of travel writing under my bling-y belt, I understand the expectations of the leisure traveler and write to those expectations. From destinations to cruises to tours and resorts, my articles cover the world; across the U.S., Canada, the Caribbean, Central America and Europe.
I'm currently a blogger for Orbitz and UrbanMatter.com as well as a writer for Resident.com, a monthly online magazine and enewsletter for the upscale Manhattan area and South Florida as well as New York Lifestyles Magazine , Food Wine Travel, Boomer and MakeItBetter.net. My work has also appeared on the Abercrombie and Kent website and email blasts.
Previous to this, I wrote a monthly travel column for the What's Happening group of newspapers in the upscale suburbs of Chicago for 3 1/2 years. In addition, I also served as the Chicago Upscale Travel Examiner as well as write for other online travel sites such as Business Travel Destinations, offbeattravel.com and thevacationgals.com. You'll also find my stories in Chicago Tribune, L.A. Times, USA Today, Lakeland Boating, Inside Publications, Long Island Woman, Family Time Magazine, six-00-three-five and Highland Park Landmark. My expertise also extends to the travel trade with articles in Group Tour Magazine and Connect Magazine.
In the past, I worked as Managing Editor for Travel Today, an insert into the Chicago Sun-Times from 1998-2002 and also served as Travel Editor for five years of Suburban Woman North Shore and City Woman Chicago.
I hold a B.A. in Advertising from Michigan State University.
