Patti Kelsey

Patti Kelsey is a freelance writer and world traveler who has lived an international life from the very start, being born in Singapore to Czech and American parents and spending almost all of her childhood living in Taiwan. She has been to 23 countries so far and currently resides in Tucson, Arizona with her husband and 1 year old daughter, where they are always on the lookout for new adventures.

Patti is also the author of two children's travel books and hopes to expand that collection in the near future. After leaving her traditional full-time office job in the summer of 2018, she now dedicates herself to writing, traveling, chasing a toddler around, and sometimes even doing all of that at once.

Discovering hidden gems, hiking, boating, and trying out new local eats are some of Patti's favorite pastimes both at home and on the road. When she isn't out of town, she's either dreaming up her next itinerary or finding something exciting to do in "her own backyard." While Patti loves to visit new places, she's always drawn back to the Czech Republic where she can visit family and practice the language.
