About Me


My background

I've been putting pen to paper to tell a  travel story that an audience will love since  2014. Now based out of British Columbia, in the past my wanderlust has relocated me to Japan and Mexico (great foodie countries, you’ll note). I am a regular contributor to publications like  CanadianTraveller, Lonely Planet, Fodors, Trivago, Travelocity, Soar in-flight mag, Dreamscapes, Explore, vacay.ca,  Inspired , Shape, Family Fun Canada, Active Life and more. Travel writer based in the Kootenay Mountains of British Columbia, Canada.


My writing interests

I have a passion for active travel, and my writing interests include adventure travel, food & drink, spas, health & wellness, fitness getaways, responsible tourism, and off the beaten path adventures—the more epic, the better.

Every editor who works with freelance journalists has a handful of ‘go-to’ writers – those they know they can count on to accept assignments, write clean, interesting copy and meet deadlines. For me, Kate is one of those writers. In the four years we’ve worked together, she has never disappointed. Her writing is thoughtful and descriptive, and her assignments are usually submitted ahead of schedule. Kate conducts herself professionally and pursues her craft with passion. I would recommend her writing services without hesitation.

 Kate is a pleasure to work and travel with. Her articles are insightful and personal connecting her readers to our destination. She’s a delight to work with.
