Talk: High-impact Travel

Travel has informed her work with pioneering nonprofits worldwide, including American Documentary Inc., Ethiopian Midwives Association, Fair Trade USA, Frontline/WORLD, National Education Association, and National Public Radio. When not consulting at Google Brand Studio, she writes stories on travel, art and food for the BBC, NBC, Lonely Planet, Telegraph, Guardian, New York Times, Cooking Light and sundry other global outlets.
