Professional/Personal Overview
  An experienced freelancer, I've written for national publications from Reader's Digest to the New York Times, from travel inflights to parenting special issues .
My specialty is family travel with kids of all ages, including teens and 20s. For clips, visit www.familytravelink.com.

As a former magazine editor and book author (with Random House and National Geographic), I know what editors need. I have teaching experience at the College level, and a working knowledge of French with some Spanish. For my writing, I have won many awards including a 2013 Travel Blog post award from the Canadian Tourism Commission.
