Meet Laura

My goal is to help travel destinations, businesses, and organizations find their authentic voice to develop a connected digital strategy to increase marketing results and ROI.

I am a travel blogger and author of two books “I’ve Gotta Pack” and “Travel Light.” Since 2015, I’ve been partnering with destinations to promote the outdoor and adventure travel niche. My feature blogs are full of juicy details and insight on destinations for the active traveler that include mountain biking, hiking, golfing, skiing and more.

I am passionate about life-work-play balance, and my mission is to inspire others to travel their way to happy.
