Work With Me:Yes You Can Hire me!

Hello future partner, I am honoured you’re interested in working together.

Let me first tell you a little about myself.

I’m a  cubicle escapee, ex web and database marketing analyst turned entrepreneurial travel mentor /  digital strategist / Freelance writer and Blogger.

I’m also a serial expat and world traveller currently on an extended family sabbatical in the south of France with my husband and three kids. This is where all the magic happens. This is where I do all my work remotely and help people like you.


Whether you need help planning a meaningful extended trip abroad, a kick butt content strategy for your company website or blog  I’m here to help.

My diverse corporate experience coupled with my Internet and travel experience gives me a unique and wide range of skills that I can put to use to help you succeed in both life and business.

I can even help you create banners and interesting videos for your business that don’t put people to sleep.

If you want to get to know my work more closely than you will have to go see my OFFICIAL street cred at Linkedin.


Ready to get to work? Below are more detailed examples of how I can help you.
