Work with Me

Work with Joy and Journey

Steph, the founder of Joy and Journey (and Quarter Life Epiphany), graduated from the Honors College of Central Michigan University with two degrees (Religion and Psychology). Her work background has focused on marketing, sales, and business development, mainly for international companies and including those in the tourism industry.

Since moving to work full time on Joy and Journey and travel writing, Steph works with clients providing freelance writing and social media management. The majority of clients are companies in travel and tourism-related fields, ranging in size from one-person tour operations to large international travel facilitators.

At this time, Steph is focusing more on Latin America and expat life in Mexico City, her current city. Prior to January 2016, Steph was in Rio de Janeiro (since October 2014), and before that in Bangkok (since January 2013).

While Steph can provide first hand accounts and photos of many regions (including Israel, Southeast Asia, the USA, and Brazil), she can also assist in general travel topics, including expat life, female travel, solo travel, and budgeting, as well as providing general copywriting, research-based writing, and blogging.
