About me

I am the founder and editor of Viajera Filipina a travel blog that seeks to inspire and equip women to get out and see the world, and My Dream Trip Coach, a travel coaching business.
I write from the perspective of a first generation American who grew up in the Philippines and currently living in Atlanta, Georgia. I work full-time as a physical therapist and travel internationally in the shoulder seasons.

Viajera Filipina is an up and coming blog that has a fast-growing community of readers among Filipinos around the world - North America, Europe, Middle East and Asia - as well as women from all across the USA.

I am a TV and movie nerd and often combine my love for travel and pop culture in my articles that have been well-received among my fellow Gen-Xers as well as the millenials.

My work has been featured in yTravel Blog, the Philippine Daily Inquirer and Rappler. I have worked with companies such as Agoda, Flight 001 and other Filipino brands.

I am a member of the Professional Travel Bloggers Association.
