Hi, I’m Karin Willison. Thanks for your interest in working with me. I am seeking to form strategic relationships with companies and brands to promote travel and cultural experiences for people with and without disabilities. With my skills, education and experience, I can be a valuable partner in bringing your product, service, or destination to a new and diverse audience.
I use a wheelchair due to cerebral palsy, and am a lifelong avid traveler. My blog, Free Wheelin’, has a growing audience and occupies a unique niche in the travel blog market. I am one of only a few travel bloggers with disabilities, and to my knowledge, I’m the only one who travels with a service dog. My focus on road trip traveling – even cross-country – makes me an ideal candidate to promote wheelchair accessible vehicles, mobility devices, inclusive outdoor adventures, hotel chains of all sizes, state tourism initiatives, and more. I love the arts, and enjoy visiting and reviewing museums, Broadway shows, live music events, and more. I enjoy the outdoors and wheelchair accessible parks and trails. My service dog Aria and I also love to review pet products and dog-friendly destinations.
I am knowledgeable about the Americans with Disabilities Act, and can assist businesses of all sizes with improving their ADA accessibility. I do public speaking on the topics of disability awareness, traveling with a disability, writing about disabilities and health care, and service dogs. I am available for both paid and volunteer appearances, depending on distance and the nature of the organization.
I am a professional writer and editor, and currently work as Disability Editor at The Mighty. While my employment there is separate from this blog, I can present proposals to the editorial team for consideration if you are interested in collaborating with them.
I have done promotions and social media for a variety of clients, mostly in the arts. I have my BA in English with a creative writing emphasis from Stanford University, and a MA in Psychology from Antioch University Los Angeles. I currently reside in the Midwest USA.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org – I look forward to hearing from you! Or you can contact me via the form below.
