Hire Elena

Live.Do.Grow. tells the story of finding everyday wellness in far-flung places and my own backyard. Stories focus on health and wellness retreats, luxury destinations, soft adventures, destination marathons and half marathons, great food and creating wellness at home through fitness, meditation and nutrition.

I am PR friendly…which means go for it…pitch me!

One note, I only share stories or anecdotes about destinations, products, or services that I have experienced FIRST hand. If you would like to advertise, please contact me for traffic statistics, available ad sizes, and rates.

My ideal partnerships are in line with living, doing, and growing: wellness retreats, luxury destinations, soft adventure travel, hiking, destination spas, foodie experiences, yoga, meditation and running.

Learn more about my professional work and hire me to write for your site, be an ambassador, spokesperson, to write sponsored posts, to develop social media and digital strategy, to organize a social media campaign, consult, or as a speaker for your next event.


“Elena is a joy to work with and she has a wealth of experience to draw from. She is detail oriented and checks her facts constantly. Elena has strong sense of integrity and when visiting a destination she already has the outlets committed for story placement and she sticks with that committment. Elena communicates very well and she kept us up to date when each of her Virginia Beach articles appeared. Elena is welcome to come back to Virginia Beach at anytime to write more stories.” Ron Kuhlman, V. P. Tourism Marketing & Sales at Virginia Beach Convention & Visitors Bureau

“It was such a pleasure to work with Elena! I had the pleasure to welcome her to our destination and she was delightful from beginning to end. I was most impressed when I received a complete report of the coverage she provided; this was unsollicited and was certainly a first – I work with travel writers on a regular basis and never had anyone provide such a report! I highly recommend Elena and thank her for her wonderful work.” Brigitte Belanger, Director of Sales & Marketing at Charlottesville-Albemarle Conventions & Visitors Bureau
