Contributing Writer

Diane Merlino loves every aspect of the travel industry, from the dynamic and innovative entrepreneurship that characterizes the business side to the expanded and more inspired worldview — and let’s not forget fun! — that the travel experience offers.

She’s had the opportunity to observe, report and write about all of it during the course of three decades as journalist, editorial director and new project developer in the travel trade press including TravelAge West, Travel Professional Magazine, Leisure Travel News, Business Travel News, Travel Weekly PLUS and She’s most appreciative of the opportunity to be part of a global industry that has the power to connect people heart to heart.
