Writer, Public Speaker, and Consultant in Florida
Angie is a rare breed of communicator, navigating both sides of the media fence as a freelance publicist, journalist, digital strategist, travel & lifestyle blogger and influencer. After a decade at PR agencies, representing chicken farms, peanuts, acne medicine and DMOs, airlines, theme parks and cruise lines, she left it all behind to explore the world and to write about it on her blog -- AngieAway.com.
Eight years later, she’s combined her PR foundations with a passion for digital storytelling, and is now firmly entrenched in the space between the two worlds. She writes about the tensions between writers and the publicists who seek to reach them; creates influencer campaigns and blogger ambassador programs for clients around the world; covers travel, lifestyle and DIY for print, online and TV outlets; and partners with brands to tell their stories to her rapt audience.
Public relations and social media consulting clients have included Universal Orlando Resort, The Islands Of The Bahamas, The Canadian Tourism Commission, Beverly Hills CVB, The City of Atlanta, InterContinental Hotels Group - Hotel Indigo & Crowne Plaza, Hope Town Lodge, Visit Jordan, Visit Berlin, EMBRACE Resort and many more.
Angie is a sought-after speaker, speaking recently at Generation W on social media behavior and at PRSA Travel on Planning the Perfect Digital Press Trip. Keynote topics include "Adventures in World Travel as a Small Town Girl" and "How to Ruin Your Life Online in 5 Easy Steps."
