Kelsey has been passionate about writing since she was in sixth grade, and she caught the travel bug while studying abroad in Ireland as a sophomore in college. Since then, her mission has been to find ways to combine those passions (and, preferably, get paid for it)! She has a BA and an MFA in Creative Writing and has been working in the travel industry since 2011, first as a sales manager and tour coordinator, then as a content manager, and now as a copywriter at Road Scholar. In her current position, which she has held for two years, she crafts image-rich descriptions of education-based travel experiences to entice learners to take a journey with Road Scholar. She also writes blogs, enews, and magazine articles; performs editing and catalog production tasks; and manages Road Scholar's Facebook page. In 2015 she started her travel blog, Hipstorical.

Her expertise is in blogging, travel writing, content creation and management, business writing, social media, advertising, and promotional writing.
