Moved from Western Montana in 1991 and currently live in Hayden Idaho. Shortly after moving, I met my wonderful husband Tom. We now share our lives with our three beautiful children, and are enjoying the great life we have here in the inland northwest.
I have operated as a Brand Ambassador, Freelance Writer, Online Marketing Specialist, and Bicycle/Beer Event Organizer since January of 2008. I specialize in promotion and advocacy in travel and tourism for Bicycling, Breweries, Wineries, Distilleries, Restaurants and Lodging in Idaho.
Some of my clients include: Laughing Dog Brewing, Selkirk Abbey Brewing, Best Western Plus Coeur d’Alene Inn, Best Western Plus University Inn, Idaho Bed and Breakfast Association, Food Services of America Spokane and FSA’s Dining Out in the Northwest Program to name a few.
Along with spending time with my family and running my business; I am also a Board Member for the Hayden Chamber of Commerce and BikeCDA. One of my latest project is fashioning bicycle friendly tours in Coeur d’Alene that can be self directed or guided to places to eat, drink, and see the sights. Watch for those in the spring of 2016.
You might say I spend my days eating and drinking while exploring on my bicycle!
