Cultural and volunteer travel to Honduras, Brazil, Peru, Morocco, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Switzerland, France, Norway and Japan has enriched my life and cultivated a passion to make a positive difference. My graduate training in International Relations with an emphasis on International Business (University of Texas) with a B.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies and Marketing Communications (University of Wisconsin) has helped me to regard global topics and opportunities from a well-rounded perspective. Sharing these experiences via travel writing is a continued inspiration and honor. When not off on a philanthropic and cultural adventure, I work in Digital Insights and Global Insights.
