Vicky is a freelance writer who works from home, and is fortunate enough to be able to call the rolling hills and foggy coast of Sonoma County her home since 1999. In addition to writing for local clients she has 20+ years experience writing about styles, trends and products for national retailers such as Macy’s, Pottery Barn, Williams Sonoma and more. Needless to say, she loves to shop. Anywhere. Anytime. She’s also a great fan of discovering the stories behind those unique and sometimes quirky hotels and lodges that somehow help to make every guest feel completely at home, wherever they find themselves. She is a relentless cheerleader for the region to her friends, and a consistent vote in favor of Sonoma Staycations for family trips.
