I'm a TN/CA-based author, travel writer, journal coach, editor, and mom of three. Obsessed with trip planning. I believe that travel is the ultimate form of self-care and personal expression.

TYS is home, but a quick drive ATL or BNA gives more options!

My travel style

I'm always on the hunt for an excellent view, a fabulous meal and the perfect cocktail.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Ghost-touring and cocktail-ing in New Orleans. 

  • Exploring the beaches and white hill towns of Andalusía, Spain. 

  • Taking in snowy views as a passenger on the Fläm Railway in Norway. 

  • Road-tripping and eating my way through Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales.

Dreaming of:

  • Exploring as much of Morocco as possible. 

  • Beach hopping through Croatia. 

  • Catching the Northern Lights in Finland. 

  • Enjoying the hot springs and falls of Chiang Dao, Thailand.

One thing I can't travel without...

A hat.

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I camped next to Sean Penn and Robin Wright in Andrew Molera State Park, Big Sur, CA. 

  2. My flight's navigation went out over the Atlantic, and we turned around for an emergency landing in Reykjavik. 

  3. My young sons were racing, and almost knocked Vince Vaughn over in front of a coffee shop in Amsterdam.
