Personal Statement

Keryn is a freelance writer, travel blogger and digital influencer living outside of Washington, DC. Her work has been seen in Travel Age West magazine,, ParentMap Magazine, Seattle Child magazine,,,, and many more websites looking for quality, well-researched content and photography. She is currently a travel segment contributor on Good Morning Washington (ABC), and has been called upon as a travel expert for national news segments.

Keryn has an undergraduate degree in photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design, along with a Masters of Science in Journalism from the Northwestern University Medill School of Journalism. The combination of these two degrees, along with several years of work experience in the photography, magazine and publishing industries led Keryn to start Walking On Travels in 2011. This award-winning family travel site gives hope to today’s active parent that doesn’t see kids as a roadblock to travel, but an excuse to get out the door and explore.

Keryn has laughed at the naysayers by bringing her two boys to far off lands like China, Hong Kong, Japan, Hawaii, back and forth across the USA, Mexico, Canada, and even across Europe. Keryn loves to encourage families to take that first step out the door, the hardest step of all. As the site has grown, more parents have joined the conversation, growing our staff and reach to more like-minded parents who aren’t putting life on hold until their kids go off to college.

In 2017, Keryn launched Twist Travel magazine along with co-publisher Andrea Fellman from Twist is a digital and print magazine that was created to help families design a travel inspired life. Through a mix of travel and lifestyle content, including recipes, fashion, home style, travel tips, destination features and more, Twist is giving parents the resources they need to live the life they dreamed about living with their kids. Our audience is looking for incredible imagery and a modern design esthetic, the latest trends, easy to digest bites of info on the web, and a community to chat with—all of which we are happy to provide, while also introducing our brand partners in a natural way that makes consumers more eager to interact and buy.
