EVENTS  & MEDIA MENTIONS:

BBC Mundo

After the incredible attention of the movie “Nomadland”, Beatriz Díez from BBC Mundo, reached out to me to discuss a different angle of RV life, which is why some of us choose this lifestyle as a full-time nomad. Turns out Beatriz had seen my videos on my YouTube channel and was very curious. She interviewed me along with Bob Wells from Cheap RV Living, who was featured in the Nomadland, to show the balance of the two different types of nomads in this community.

Health Magazine

I was so excited back in the early fall of 2020 when Health Magazine approached me for their January/February 2021 issue dubbed “The Change Issue”. The article they featured me in is all about making a meaningful change in your life and creating an incredible transformation. I feel so honored to have been chosen amongst 2 other women – one went from human resources to making wine, and the other a mental health activist who created People of Color & Mental Illness Photo Project. 

Curbed

Andrew Zaleski from Curbed reached out to me a couple of months after COVID hit hard in the United States to discuss the topic of how life has changed traveling in a van and being a good neighbor. As a full-time traveling nomad, life has certainly changed and we had to adapt during this time to social distancing.

Curbed

Recently I got the chance to share my story with Megan from Curbed about living in a camper van with the COVID-19 outbreak. There are several other vanlifers as well who share their story on how we're coping and what we're doing with closures, travel, and living on the road.
