Hi, I’m Jessica Goodwin and I’m the principal writer at Outbound & Company. I love making the most of every weekend and looking forward to the next vacation. I spent my early career in travel and event coordination planning everything from concerts to conventions to cruises. As a mom of two beautiful and busy kids, I dropped the typical 9-5 for a more flexible schedule doing freelance work as a social media consultant. Looking to combine my PR and social media experience with my passion for travel, Outbound & Company was created. Join us as we chronicle our busy life seeing what our town (a little place called Los Angeles) and the rest of this world has to offer.

Britney Stevens lives in Austin, Texas with her husband, Adam, and two kids, Jude and Scout. She has experience as a fashion contributor for an online women’s magazine and now writes for our “What to Pack” column. As a mom traveling with two young kids, she brings inspiration from her Northeast roots and obsession with anything leather. Some of her passions include food trucks, Gilmore Girls, and the occasional trip to the gym.

Ashley Bardsley comes to us from the suburbs of New York City. She and her family love exploring New England and are always up for an adventure. Ashley spent several years planning and carrying out events for companies ranging from 20 to 8,000 participants. She loves planning, traveling and writing and is an avid list keeper. If she isn’t discovering a new area with her children and husband she is probably planning and plotting their next travel destination.
