Bio

Ibn Battuta once said “Traveling-it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.” After spending 34-years as a registered nurse and legal nurse consultant, Noreen hung up her stethoscope for good in 2018 and transformed her lifelong love of travel into the world of freelance travel writing and photography. In the 6 years since she launched her travel writing career, she’s had over 600 published stories for a multitude of print and digital publications and has been a guest speaker at the Ultimate Travel Writer’s Workshop four times on topics of travel writing success, queries, marketing for travel writers, and press trips. Noreen also pioneered a member’s only private travel-writer’s program known as the Travel Writer’s Café for Great Escape Publishing and co-launched a Travel Writer’s Branding and Mastermind program in 2020. Above all else, Noreen loves to write about her adventures with her husband, family and friends. Like most people, she believes that destinations are multi-faceted. Therefore, her articles often cover the gamut of travel pieces, history, outdoor adventure, sustainable living, wine and other libations, and coffee.
