"Mickela brought the entire audience to life..."

"Mickela brought the entire audience to life with a dance demonstration at the beginning of her session, showing off the power of the experiences that she documents and promotes so well. She is a passionate, engaged speaker who is eager to connect with and inspire fellow travelers and content creators." - Zach Glassman, Founder of Passion Passport

Mickela is the Emmy® Award-winning Host & Executive Producer of Bare Feet with Mickela Mallozzi, a travel series airing on PBS stations nationwide.  She has created a successful career by combining her two passions in life, while also producing a completely unique travel TV show that no one else has done before.  Mickela has used her creativity to make this project a reality – with no background in TV production or journalism, she was able to write her own rules, set her own goals, and find her own opportunities that otherwise were not available.   "I couldn’t find a job that I liked, so I created a job that I love," Mickela so easily puts it.  And with every TV executive that comes across her story, they always say “Mickela, you’ve done the impossible.”
