Speaking + Suitcase Sojourn Podcast


I’m often asked to speak about travel, culture, and media. In the past, I’ve spoken at events, conferences, as an expert on syndicated news programs, as well as on panels discussing women in business & the aforementioned industries. I also love interviewing entrepreneurs, creatives and women leaders, some of whom have appeared on my podcast, or on panels I have moderated. To discuss me speaking at your conference or event, please email me directly


I host the Suitcase Sojourn Podcast, conducting bi-monthly interviews with worldly women about the influence of global travel on our culture, our work and ourselves. Through interviews with brilliant women artists, chefs, designers, media, entrepreneurs and business leaders, we discuss our love, lessons, tips and of impact of travel.
