As a travel writer/video producer/founder of Joy’s Travel Adventures, I have traveled through 27 countries and most of the United States while working for Alaska and Delta Airlines and independent travel. My love of travel was cultivated by my adventure loving parents from a young age traveling by plane, boat, train and bus all over South America and Africa.
I have covered four-star hotels, Food & Wine Festivals nation-wide in my page one Google blog: Pure, Unadulterated Joy, and my coverage on Big Sur and Hearst Castle inspired a TV travel episode. My articles have been published in C-Suite Quarterly, BLVDsLV Magazine, Healthcare Traveler, and on TechZulu, AOL’s Patch, The Blogger’s Bulletin, Yahoo Shine and more.
As an airline industry professional, I wrote the script and appeared in a "Beating the High Cost of Travel" infomercial featuring Travel Expert, Tom Parsons, and Radio Personality, Casey Kasem. My interesting experiences abroad earned a “Spirit of Adventure” honor from the Youth Hostels of America Organization.
I was building Joy’s Travel Adventures aka Joie de Vivre Travel into an online global travel community for female travelers until my mother passed away, but now that I'm moving to a whole new area looking to begin exploring options again very soon!
