Work With Us

Niche Travel Design is a travel and lifestyle blog focusing on stories and photographs of life abroad, cultural experiences, recipes, and ideas and tips for creating unique memories to last a lifetime. We also recommend products and services that help to make our followers’ travel dreams a reality.

We believe that designing the perfect vacation is as much an art form as designing a home’s interior or a garden’s landscape. In order to design unforgettable experiences, we curate travel tips and products. We want your travel to feed your soul and rejuvenate you. We pride ourselves on finding things like the best cup of coffee, the most interesting art gallery, the best place to sip Prosecco while watching the sunset and the best accessories to make your adventure more comfortable.

Owner, photographer, writer, blogger, Shelley Jarvis, once read that certain people are born with the wanderlust gene. She concluded that if her genetic mapping was done, she would be one of those people. Naturally curious, travel stimulates her as nothing else does.

Originally from the San Francisco Bay area, she has lived in 3 states and 4 countries. She began her professional life as a lawyer, however, after moving a number of times, she began a consulting business that has been operating for over 11 years both domestically and internationally. With each move to a new place she was forced to learn to market her services and develop relationships with people in different cultures, thus, she is well versed in marketing and promoting.

Social Media Manager, Helena Twarowski, has lived in 3 countries and has been an active social media user in 4 languages. She assists with art design, styling, content production and social media management.
