Simone is a creative strategist, traveler, meditator, writer, potluck host and bookclub member, in no particularly order. She has dedicated her entire adult life to traveling (most often alone), and her entire career to journalism. As a writer, she is a regular contributor to various publications, including Man Repeller, Sonima and Dirt, telling stories relating to travel, women's health, wellness, social impact and food.
Simone is a meditation facilitator for NYC's Medi Club, where she also runs a Give Back Initiative to mobilize community members around volunteerism and promote wellness in underprivileged communities. In 2015, she co-led the global expansion of Polished Man, an innovative fundraising campaign to end violence against children, helping to raise over $300,000.
She feels most passionate about encouraging young people to get out and see the world.
