My advice would your own boss! If you don’t have a job that will allow you to travel- create one. It is 2016, time to get creative.

What motivated you to sign up for The Remote Experience?

I have always wanted to travel to SE Asia but planning the logistics of such a big trip sounds like a full time job. I joined the Remote Experience to combine my love of travel, work and play.

Did you have a remote position prior to joining The Remote Experience?


If not, how were you able to convince your boss to let you join The Remote Experience?

What do you think will be the hardest part of this trip?

Leaving my dog at home for 4 months.

Fun fact(s) about you?

Fun facts....whenever I am asked this I feel extra boring LOL. I am addicted to traveling which is why I decided to choose a career that allowed me to do just that as much as I wanted. I started an online coaching business when I was 21 and dropped out of college to pursue my dreams. Fast forward 4 years later and it was the best decision I ever made! Have the courage to chase your dreams.

Are there any MUST haves for your trip?

An insulated water bottle, cold water is a luxury when you are on the road AND a GoPro.

Where can we follow you?

Website, Facebook, or Instagram.
