Sara Shulman

Sara Shulman is a freelance writer living in South Florida and has covered the all things Florida for TripSavvy since April 2018. 

Sara holds a BA in Journalism from Rutgers University and an AAS in Design from The Parsons School of Design. 

As an avid traveler, she has scuba dived in southern Thailand, hiked throughout Israel, and surfed off the coast of Costa Rica.


Sara Shulman is a freelance writer based out of South Florida. As a New Jersey native, she appreciates South Florida living more than most, and loves exploring all the incredible natural beauty the Sunshine State state has to offer. She loves spontaneous weekend getaways with her family, and in a place like Florida, a private paradise is never too far away. She also enjoys CrossFitting, snorkeling, and relaxing on the beach (especially in the winter months when she knows it's snowing up north).

Sara began her writing and editing career as a teen magazine editor but later transitioned to studying graphic and interior design at the Parsons School of Design in New York City. She has since melded all of her skills into a career as a freelance writer covering a wide range of topics from travel to health to design. Her work has appeared in Travel + Leisure, Well + Good, INSIDER,, Lonny Magazine, and TeenVogue.


  • Bachelors in Journalism and History from Rutgers University in New Jersey.
  • Associates in Graphic & Interior Design from Parsons School of Design in New York City.
