"Kathy is an absolute professional who is not only kind with her request but also a lovely wordsmith with her articles. After her stay with my client, Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa, Kathy was thankful and quickly turned around multiple pieces highlighting her experience. I truly enjoyed reading about her experience at the hotel and felt as though I was there myself, or at the very least, ready to plan a trip."
Eva Frank, Account Executive MAGRINO
"Kathy Condon is a gifted storyteller. She is able to visit a destination, explore it, and then share it with readers through her words and her photos. She is always prompt in meeting deadlines and ready to meet any requests I have for an assignment. Her writing style beautifully matches our Wander With Wonder's voice, plus she discovers stories in unsuspecting places."
Susan Lanier-Graham, Editor-in-Chief of Wander with Wonder

"Every time I work with Kathy Condon, I know I am in for a treat. She is never afraid to explore beyond the confines of the story and include an element of human connection. In most cases, she provides real-time feedback. Her follow-up is always appreciated by both the organizer and the participating partners. She is gracious and will often over-deliver."

I am a dedicated journalist and travel writer passionate about learning and sharing information through my adventures. As a natural storyteller and educator, I aim to explore and communicate my findings through writing.
My niche has evolved into luxury experiences and communities living in the shadows of larger cities. No matter where I travel, treasures are ready to be found when I dig deeper or go off the defined path.
My publication list continues to grow. I have published 110 plus travel articles, revealing everything from luxury resort experiences to a remote desert attraction near Joshua Tree National Park.
On Google Maps I have reached Level 8, with 23 million plus views of my reviews and photos.
