Beverly Mann - Professional Travel Writing & Public Relations

A native New Yorker, Beverly Mann has been a feature, arts, and travel writer in the San Francisco Bay Area for the past 28 years. She has trekked miles of terrain from the West Coast and Canada to Western and Eastern Europe, Indonesia, and India. Her stories highlight cities and personalities spanning the globe. She has lived in the caves of Spain, danced the tango by the Seine in Paris and in the streets of Argentina, followed the footsteps of the Impressionist painters through Provence, climbed Machu Picchu in Peru and Cinque Terra's precipice overlooking the Mediterranean coastline, zip-lined through the rainforest of Australia, heli-hiked on the 8,200-foot mountain ridge in Canada, participated in the ancient temple ceremonies of Bali, and combed the countryside of Ireland, Yugoslavia, and the island of Corsica.

Beverly's writing career literally leaped forward from the world of dance, where she established herself as a Bay Area dance and theater critic interviewing such notables as Marcel Marceau, prima ballerina Cynthia Gregory, choreographers Paul Taylor and Alwin Nikolais, actress Angela Lansbury, and First Lady Betty Ford. Beverly holds an M.A. in Dance and Creative Arts from New York University and several California State professional teaching credentials in English writing, ESL, and as a Learning Specialist.

She has received numerous accolades in the fields of travel writing, education, and international public relations. She was mentioned by BATW for an Award of Excellence in Newspaper Travel Writing. An award-winning public relations specialist, she spearheaded strategic global plans for international conferences and partnership events for high-profiled clients from Japan to Europe. Her clients spanned a wide range of industries: health, education, technology, arts, entertainment, travel, and food.
