I also happily consider appropriate press-trips as well as gear and product testing, however, please be aware I will always provide honest, unbiased reviews and supporting content.

I am also a freelance writer and photographer so I’m available for hire in those arenas as well. Again, simply contact me and I will provide pricing specific to your project.

  1. Hello Val, I was guided to you by someone on a homeschool message board. I am not sure where you might be able to help best, but I will explain what we are doing and would love your thoughts. Our community has a community owned Land Trust filled with rich flora and fauna. We are looking for ways to help kids connect with this space through “nature explores” where they are guided through the space with a very knowledgeable person to really understand what they are seeing and how the ecosystem of the land trust works. This is a burgeoning idea and we are open to various forms in which such an endeavor could take. Please reply with any thoughts you might have and if you think there might be a place for your expertise in this project, or if you know of someone who might be more fitting. Thank you so much for your time and best regards to you. Tyralynn
