Publisher, Solo Traveler
A love of travel, personal loss and an empty nest all conspired for Janice to begin Solo Traveler in 2009. Resonating with thousands of readers, the site quickly went from personal to public and the Solo Traveler Project began.
This site, interviews in the media, speaking gigs including The Smithsonian Institute, the amazing Solo Travel Society on Facebook, and The Solo Traveler's Handbook all connect those who love and those who long to go solo.
She has spoken on travel and travel blogging in Canada, the United States and many countries in Europe. Janice weaves tales from her trips with practical tips to ignite her presentations.
