Where I've been
the U.S. and the world
I have made Tampa, Florida my home since 2001. Moving to Florida also marks the start of my writing career. Over the years my byline has appeared in regional and national outlets, including AAA Going Places, AARP, AFAR, Allrecipes, Condé Nast Traveler, Garden & Gun, Global Traveler, Marriott Bonvoy, Travel + Leisure, and USA Today, among many others. I’m also an active member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors, and the Society of American Travel Writers. You can see more on my personal website, travlingirl.com.
I also co-founded FloridaBeyond.com, a blog that aims to take a deep dive into all Florida has to offer, from insiders’ perspectives. From cool hotels and resorts to hidden beaches to well-known spots and only-in-Florida moments, through FloridaBeyond.com we share my Florida expertise with you.
