I am a Marketing Coordinator at Travelink, American Express Travel, specializing in graphic design and social media. My love of travel began at an early age and truly flourished when I studied abroad with Belmont University in Twickenham, an outer borough of London proper. I have been to 19 countries and counting. My travel goals are to visit every National Park, step foot on every continent, and live abroad at some point in my life. I am a total foodie, aspiring travel photographer, and an eager adventurer, looking for that niche, one-of-a-kind local experience when traveling.
