Originally from Buffalo, N.Y., a hiking trail led Jennifer A. Huber to a career path in tourism. She has worked in the tourism industry for decades including 10 years with a park management company in Yellowstone, Death Valley, and Everglades National Parks. The unexpected death of her former husband woke her up to how precious life is and was a catalyst to sharing her experiences with the hope of inspiring and empowering others to shed their fears and travel solo. Jennifer founded the popular solo female travel blog SoloTravelGirl.com in 2009 because she was traveling alone, not lonely for business and leisure trips. “Traveling alone, not lonely,” became the tagline for her blog. She writes about adventure, outdoors, solo travel and food. She currently works in the tourism industry, writes a weekly Florida outdoor travel column for the Charlotte Sun (Port Charlotte, Fla.) and monthly travel column for The Parrott Magazine (North Port, Fla.), serves on the boards of directors for the Florida Outdoor Writers Association and Ringling College Library Association, and lives in Southwest Florida with her two cats and dog. Her rescue dog, Radcliff, is often her road trip partner. When not traveling, she’s experimenting in the kitchen.
