Hi, I'm Susan


(Hi! Here I am in Nicaragua getting some travel biz work done on a work/life vacation.)

When I first became a travel writer and digital marketer over 10-years-ago, I thought I had "made it". I quickly landed on dozens of press trips, got published on blogs and websites and landed work in eight travel guidebooks, Global Traveler Magazine, The LA Times, The Boston Globe, The Australian, Off Metro, Mothering, Amazing Wellness, NY Metro Parents, Family Vacation Survival Guide and others. My years as a social media consultant included projects for major Broadway tours, Dreamworks, big travel brands and more.

But something was missing.

I had spent years quietly helping other writers and tourism pros get their careers off the ground on the side as extra freelance work or favors and found myself missing it. I loved tweaking WordPress sites, strategizing query letters and website copy, working on PR and influencer outreach emails, responding to audience emails and press trip invitations, strategizing social media engagement, and diving in as a creative Jill of All Trades. Then it suddenly hit me. There are almost no virtual assistants and creative managers out there for travel bloggers and tourism business owners who actually get the unique nuances of the industry. I decided to align more of my career around helping this talented and tireless group of people thrive.

Growing and running a travel blog or tourism business is hard, but you don't have to do it all on your own. Hire someone that gets it, can help turn your ideas into reality, and connect the dots for you. When I'm working on all of those time-consuming tasks that take away from your real labor of loves, you get to focus on your zone of genius and what makes you feel fulfilled.
