Lianna Kemmerer

Creator Coach & Mentor, Writer, Travel Curator, Creator, Producer, Podcaster, & Freedive Instructor

I love helping others communicate their message with authenticity and emotion in a way that allows humanity to learn from, be inspired by, and connect with them in an authentic way.

I love creating space for others to passionately pursue humanity and connection, both through intentional travel experiences and in their career as a creative. I love helping my fellow creatives pursue and propel their career to a place of success and sustainability.

I’ve been in business for myself for over 11 years, and have found a balance in using my creative passion, business expertise, and heart for humanity to authentically tell stories, create responsible media, and support my fellow creatives as they establish and scale their own business’s. 

As a creator coach, photographer, travel curator, podcaster, and free dive instructor, my focus remains human connection. I deeply value the impact and power we have when we are able to see the world through another’s eyes; and am grateful to continue creating pieces and projects that are centered on the impact we have in knowing the value in humanity.

- Your fellow human, Lianna

What is a positive impact we will have during this trip?

One of the most important things we can do not just as a creative or a traveler, but as a human; is to leave a positive impact on the places and cultures that we visit. This is something that we will be getting to do on this trip as well; as you know a heartbreaking earthquake struck Turkey just last year and many are still suffering and struggling to find a way forward. A portion of the proceeds from this trip will go directly to a vetted local organization that is dedicated to making a positive impact in the lives of those affected by this tragedy.
