Media Kit

I am a Southern Girl Gone Global inviting readers to join a journey across 4 continents and the Caribbean for discoveries without and within.  I partner with travel brands and tourism boards to provide readers experiences of beauty, adventure, relationship, rejuvenation, and reinvention.

 My photography portfolio is here and samples of collaborations are linked below. Please see if we would make a good team…

Partnerships with travel/hospitality brands–hotels, restaurants, tours, and services–are below.

Readers, rest assuredliterally...I only recommend places and services I’ve experienced firsthand and am glad that I did. I’m committed to promoting quality getaways and staycations and enjoy connecting good people  I meet behind hospitality brands with you.
