Ziff's combination of personal journeying and insider industry knowledge has molded her into the travel industry expert of choice for consumers and media throughout the country. Need to know the top 10 places to bake on the beach, rip it on the slopes or get married in a minute? She's got the answer.
Whether you're searching for a deal, the latest stats on airfares, updates on traveler behaviors, or want to know what's being served on the plane -Ziff has the information travelers are seeking.
In 2002 Ziff joined Travelocity as editor-at-large and industry spokesperson. Prior to Travelocity, she was part of the founding team of Site59, the pioneering last-minute travel Web site.
The earlier part of her career was spent in media. While getting her master's in journalism, she worked on the launch of the first women's sports and travel magazine as editor of the travel section.
When she's not reporting live from the mountains of Jasper, Canada, the slopes of Breckenridge or Main Street USA at Disney, Ziff can be found digging into the latest industry happenings for her monthly column, Travel Trends and Advice from A to Z, found at www.travelocity.com/atoz.
