Writer and editor Colleen Stinchcombe spent three years as a staff editor before leaving to spend a summer backpacking 1,000 miles along the Pacific Crest and Oregon Coast trails. Afterward, she turned her sights to adventure, travel, environment, and wellness writing. She’s contributed to Sierra, Outside, REI, GQ, Lonely Planet, Fodor’s, The Seattle Times, Thrillist, SELF, Brit + Co, Shape, Woman’s Day, and Business Insider, among others.
Based in the Seattle, WA area, her domestic travels have taken her from the desert mountains of California to the Badlands of North Dakota. Internationally, she’s backpacked through Vietnam, spent several summers wandering the valleys of Wales, road trips regularly to British Columbia, and has also traveled to England, Italy, France, Germany, Denmark, Norway, Jamaica, Mexico, and Cambodia. She’s found her way by foot, bike, bus, car, train, ship, and plane with everything from a roller bag to a daypack.
In addition to her editorial work, Colleen uses her expertise to work with businesses on copywriting, blogging, ebooks, newsletters, crafting editorial calendars and plotting content strategy.
