Jody Halsted is a freelance writer living in America's heartland. Jody's love of Ireland led her to create the only online resource dedicated to family travel in the Emerald Isle, where she and her family vacation annually (if not more often!)

When she's not traveling, Jody is homeschooling her two daughters (or shuttling them hither and yon to Irish Dance lessons, horseback riding and gymnastics), attempting to learn the Irish language, or doing her best to keep her house clean and family fed.  During her “down time”, Jody enjoys cooking and “geeking out” with her husband Doug, a software developer and IT specialist.

Jody is a contributor to the Ireland Travel Kit, writes articles for great sites like Tenon Tours and  MiniTime, as well as other digital and print media.
