As a PR professional, I’ve secured coverage in top publications such as Thrillist, Condé Nast Traveler, Travel Awaits, and Clutchpoints, as well as regional and local publications. Additionally, I’ve developed relationships with bloggers and content creators across the travel industry. 
During my career, I've spent time working in both in-house and agency settings. As such, I have ample experience collaborating with teams and building relationships with clients. I have conquered the remote work lifestyle, but still enjoy face-to-face meetings when needed.
