In between our own globetrotting, our team is hard at work year-round prepping for our events. It’s our mission to be as accessible as we can to this incredible community, and we hope that you feel comfortable coming to us with any questions or suggestions, or even just stopping by to say hi (although we’re generally quite busy during our events, so we apologize in advance if we don’t have as much time to chat as we’d like!).
If you’re interested in joining our larger group of volunteers for one of our upcoming events, keep an eye out on social media and in our newsletter for volunteer applications and opportunities.
Ana Dominguez is a travel blogger and Blogging Coach at The City Sidewalks based in New York City. With her expertise in online marketing, she’s able to help other bloggers, creatives, and entrepreneurs grow their businesses so that they can achieve financial freedom to travel the world on their own terms. Find her on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, or on her website.
Program & Creative Director
Ariel has been on the WITS team since before WITS even had a name. She’s a queer, mixed-race writer, activist, survivor, traveler, consultant, and sometimes-poet based in Brooklyn, New York. She is the Program & Creative Director for the Women in Travel Summit and the Deputy Digital Director for Lambda Legal, the largest LGBTQ and HIV civil rights legal organization in the world. She has worked, edited, and traveled across the globe. You can find her around the web tweeting and writing on survival, queerness, body positivity, and travel – but she most often dreams of running away to Amsterdam (and is frequently a mouse-click away from booking a one-way ticket). Find her on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or on her website.
Beth is Founder and CEO of Wanderful and creator of the Women in Travel Summit. The idea for a robust community of women travelers came to her while cruising her blue motorcycle through the streets of São Tomé and Príncipe, a small country in Africa’s Gulf of Guinea. Now, she is a thought leader on women's travel, an avid community builder, and a voice for women creators and entrepreneurs. She is the product of an art history major at Wellesley followed by a Kellogg MBA, and lives in Boston with a house full of pets, an adorable toddler, and a husband, also known as the founder of MITS (which does not in fact exist yet). Find her on LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitter, or on her website.
Marissa’s love for travel was sparked when she studied abroad, an experience that inspired her to launch her travel blog, Little Things Travel. Most recently she worked in marketing and served as an advisor in international education. Marissa is based in Chicago, Illinois where you can usually find her trying to get out of the city for some skiing, hiking, or biking when she’s not traveling. Find her on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or on her website.
Megan is a social media fiend, community building badass and travel lover. She has spent the last 6 years as a digital nomad living in Thailand, London and Mexico all while honing her social media and community building skills for startups, agencies, and brands alike! She’s one half of the blog, WhyWaitToSeeTheWorld.com, the reincarnation of Twenty-SomethingTravel.com, with Stephanie Yoder. She’s passionate about tacos, oh, and helping millennials to stop waiting to see the world! Find her on Instagram, Facebook, or on her website.
Operations & Logistics Chair
Sara is a travel enthusiast, coordinator at heart and lover of all things travel related. Based in Boston, she is lucky enough to travel within the States for work, but jumps at the chance to hop across the pond whenever possible. She went on her first 2 week solo trip to Germany and Ireland in 2014 after becoming inspired by a Wanderful-hosted event on the subject the previous year! Sara is inspired by the idea of traveling within your own city, continually seeking to find all the hidden gems that Boston has to offer.
