Sherry of Ottsworld spent 11 years as a nomad, living out of a suitcase and experiencing the world through housesitting, volunteering, and writing assignments. In 2017 she finally settled into a home again in Denver -- but still travels 50% of the time blogging and doing photography!
Sherry quit her corporate IT job in 2006 and said goodbye to her cubicle, meetings, and New York City. Her original intention was to simply take a career break and come back after a year and determine next steps. She traveled around the world to 23 countries, finding a new exciting world outside of her office walls.
Her eyes were opened to possibilities and the beauty of simplicity; she didn’t want to go back to her old corporate existence. Instead she sold her possessions and relocated to Vietnam for one year in order to keep traveling. To make money, she taught ESL, sold photography, and started really working at building a blogging and writing presence. Since leaving Vietnam in 2009, she remained on the road and built up her travel blog, grew her freelance writing/photography career, shared her experience through public speaking, and consults/participates on social media marketing campaigns.
