Blake Blanchard

A few things about me:

PR & Marketing Associate at VirtualTourist.com, a TripAdvisor Media Group company. I work on PR and Marketing initiatives, manage site-wide Community events, as well as handle the company's social media accounts.

My writing has been featured in Elle magazine, the New York Times, Chicago Tribune, MSNBC.com, Yahoo!, Reuters.com, Los Angeles Times, Boston.com, and Vancouver Sun.

I’m that girl who is a chair of a committee for her high school reunion. No, seriously, I’m the chair of the Planning Committee for the Phillips Exeter Academy Class of 2002 10 year reunion.

In my spare time, I’m a member of a monthly book club with fellow Duke grads, I love Happy Hour Spinning at Equinox, and my ideal vacation is either a beach destination with lots of water sports or strolling the streets of a European city I’ve never visited before!

I reside in Santa Monica, California, with my 12 lb rescue pup, Rudy, but I’m East Coast Born-and-Bred. I will cheer for the Lakers, but the only sports team that ever causes me real emotional turmoil are my Boston Red Sox.
