Melissa Popp is a freelance writer with more than a decade of experience. She has been TripSavvy's Rving and road trip expert since 2014, and she also contributes to RVwithMe, RV Rentals Guide, and RV Open Road magazine. Melissa is also a member of the Professional Travel Bloggers Association.
She has worked with RV Open Road, RV Mobile Glass, and a handful of RV startups to help develop content and resources for travelers. Along with her colleague, Stuart Webb, she founded NASCARRVing.com in 2016 to help RVers find better ways to follow NASCAR across the country in RVs.
She spent her childhood summers RVing up and down the west coast and Alaska with family. As a freelance writer, Melissa has been able to pick up and go as she pleases, leading to many moves and travels to several states.
For more than 20 years, Melissa has been fascinated with the idea of packing it all up and leaving the traditional concept of home behind her. In addition to writing about RV travel and road tripping here at TripSavvy, Melissa is a Content Strategist who works with a variety of small businesses in the Midwest along with the startup community in Denver. She is the Director of Digital Engagement for Denver-based Altitude Agency, a digital marketing boutique focused on winning with content. She's spent the last six years as a Senior Writer for TechNorms.com and covers CES every year for the site.
Melissa studied Comparative Literature and Journalism in college before taking a year off to find herself. During that year, she discovered the world of freelancing and never looked back. More than a decade later, Melissa still writes about her love of the great outdoors, camping, and RVing.
