Bio

As a recognized practitioner in the environmental sciences for 30 years as well as an ABCEP Certified Environmental Professional, I now specialize in creative linkages between ecology, journalism, and media.

In private consulting practice since 2001, I have produced deliverables and articles on the topics of science, travel, sustainable tourism, and nature as well as prepared seminars, resource assessments, expert testimony, and media interviews.

Concurrently, I have expanded into destination travel focusing on history, culture, family, sustainable/green tourism, nature-appreciation and my own photography as well as an on-call travel consumer columnist.

A life sciences education and profession requiring outdoor work, report preparation, and project management combined with my need to stay connected with family internationally evolved into my current practice of focused niche destinations and topics.

Examples of published work include Elliott.org, Food Wine and Travel Magazine and blog, Destinations Travel Magazine, Building Magazine, Hospitality21, Maryland Magazine, Family Travel Files, Family Travel Forum, Travel World International, Just Say Go, and Gallagher’s Travels.

In addition to the International Food, Wine & Travel Writers Association (IFWTWA), I am also a member of the Society of Environmental Journalists (SEJ), North American Travel Journalists Association (NATJA), Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ, International Travel Writers Alliance (ITWA), International Coalition of Tourism Partners (ICTP), National Association of Environmental Professionals (NAEP), World Tourism Network (WTN), and Society for Advancing Business Editing and Writing (SABEW).
