Lori’s story:

Carmel has become a friend and colleague in the travel and tourism arena and is respected and admired by many of my CVB colleagues in travel and tourism across the nation.

I have worked with Carmel as a travel writer for many years. I have hosted Carmel on press trips and FAM tours and have found her to be a pleasure to work with as a travel journalist.

She is a woman of ethics in both the business world and in her personal life and a true media professional who delivers what she promises.

I love how she coaches others who love to travel, how to break in to travel writing, and how to comp travel with professionalism. She is a well-respected source of information and has a passion for teaching others how to do what she loves to do, traveling for free while sharing her love and enthusiasm for writing, story-telling, travel and tourism.
