Freelance Work

I currently have 7 years of writing experience under my belt and it all started at the University of Michigan. From there, I moved to New York City where I dabbled in sports writing, retail reporting and health and food writing. Now, I freelance write from wherever I am in the world. I like to explore different topics and share engaging travel experiences with readers.

Writing for these publications helps me develop my own voice, which I express on Marina’s Milestones. I love sharing my own bizarre travel and food experiences with you. Because I’m that girl who people say, “That would happen to you.” Can’t help it.
