Linda serves on the IFWTWA Board as Media Trips Chair.  In the past, she has served as the Vice President, Chair of the Annual Conference in 2019 and as the chair for the pre- and post-trip committee for the Annual Conference for 2022. She is an active member of the Wine Review Council, a group that reviews local, national, and international wines. She has recently become a member of the International Travel Writers Alliance, an international travel organization with headquarters in England.

She believes traveling exposes us to other cultures which grows understanding, tolerance and acceptance. She loves to share her stories and experiences via freelance travel writing to capture the reader and rouse an interest in discovering new horizons. Sometimes it’s the hidden gems that bring Linda the most joy.

Whether Linda travels to Jordan, South Africa, Switzerland; Punta Cana; Bordeaux; Italy; Birmingham, Alabama; or Door County, Wisconsin, she finds unique aspects of the area through conversations with the people with whom she comes into contact. She has found there is beauty in the commonplace as well as the exotic.

She also contributes to the FWT Magazine (Food Wine Travel, the IFWTWA magazine) as well as Big Blend Magazine with a base of 3 million + readers and listeners where her articles have appeared in an assortment of their magazines and where she has done radio broadcasts with the hosts. She has also written for Palm Springs Preferred Small Hotels with a focus on a group of small boutique hotels. One of the most unique articles for them was a dog-focused stay with her dog, Bella.

Whether the story is very local to her wine region or about international locations with unique tidbits about that area’s local points of interest, having fun and enjoying new experiences is what Linda is all about.
