Travel Writing

As a fitness/recreation manager since 2006 it is vital to have well researched articles. Currently, I own a fitness service and writing business and I follow, work and consult with some of the top names in the fitness industry. I have a positive standing relationship with the American Council of Exercise (ACE), and I use valid and reputable resources to provide factual and up-to-date information and trends. This includes research journals found from SportsDiscus, Research Gate and Google Scholar.

In addition, as a fitness professional I have had the opportunity to integrate the outdoors and travel within my writing and professional career of coordinating and leading wellness retreats.

My extensive travel background and photography interests have gained hundreds of various travel article topics and thousands of well captured photographers.

I can create the language and tone of the materials to fit your needs, and will complete all assignments to your 100% satisfaction.
