"During WITS '15 in Boston, I had the opportunity to connect with both Finger Lakes Tourism and Quebec Tourism. Both led to individualized press trips for my family that I turned into dozens of articles which have had tens of thousands of pageviews, combined. Many of my readers have contacted me, saying that they booked travel to these two destinations as a result of my articles."

Points of Interest

"WITS gave me the courage and self-confidence to create a video and pursue my first travel opportunity. I applied for and secured a job through Dreamjobbing to be a travel journalist for a week in Puerto Vallarta. I also made a connection with Strayboots, and I am working with them creating hunts in the Dallas/Fort Worth area of Texas."
