A love of travel, personal loss and an empty nest all conspired for me to begin Solo Traveler in 2009. Resonating with thousands of readers, the blog quickly went from personal to public and the Solo Traveler Project began.
The Solo Traveler's Handbook, the Solo Traveler blog, speaking engagements about solo travel including The Smithsonian Institute, the amazing Solo Travel Society on Facebook and a manifesto on traveling alone called Glad You're Not Here all connect those who love and those who long to travel solo.
Prior to my career as a writer, I had a conference, trade show and publishing company with my husband which we started grew and then sold. Between businesses I traveled with my family for 10 months and returned to university to complete a Master's Degree in History focusing on how it is represented on feature film. Yes, I snuck two interests into one degree.
Now I travel. I travel solo and I carefully observe how I do it. Then I write and share my stories, tips and advice.
