As Seen In

Over the years, I have loved sharing my writing through guest blogs and print articles, and to be featured on podcasts! I also work full-time in community engagement and public relations, and am proud to serve as a subject matter expert and spokesperson in media interviews. Feel free to browse the following articles and publications for a glimpse at some of my work outside of Wellness & Wanderlust, along with other selected press.

For future blogging and podcast interview opportunities, please email me at valerie@wellnessandwanderlust.net or visit my Contact page and I will be happy to speak with you further!
