Whether I’m teaching in a classroom, speaking at a conference or leading a webinar, I draw from my experience as both a professional travel journalist and corporate marketing executive to deliver meaningful content.
I’ve participated as a speaker and panel moderator at travel industry conferences including the New York Times Travel Show, Society of American Travel Writers, Educational Travel Conference, Shop America Alliance ONE Travel Conference, Public Relations Society of America, Travel Media Showcase Family Travel Conference and multiple state tourism conferences.
I’ve taught travel writing courses and publishing strategy at Loyola University of Chicago’s School of Continuing Education, University of Chicago Writer’s Studio and Columbia College, Chicago.
An active volunteer in the Society of American Travel Writers (SATW), I’ve served as the professional development co-chair for the 2015 SATW Annual Conference and spearheaded educational programs for SATW Editors Council meetings. I was the SATW Marketing Chair (2008-2012) and have chaired the Society’s Geography Education Committee since 2004.
