Make Your Next Trip Extraordinary

Join Me in Welcoming Billie Cohen to

by Wendy Perrin | July 29, 2014

The team is growing! I’m thrilled to announce that Billie Cohen is now our Digital Strategy Director. I worked with Billie at Condé Nast Traveler for the past three years as she launched that magazine’s website and developed a vision, a voice, and great daily content for the magazine’s online presence.

Prior to becoming Editor of, Billie was with the Time Out magazine group, serving as Deputy Editor of Time Out New York, where she worked on relaunching that brand’s website and online content, and as launch editor of Time Out Singapore. She has written for The New York Times, Every Day with Rachael Ray, National Geographic,, and more.

Billie left Condé Nast Traveler shortly after I did this past spring, to move into digital consulting and editing. I’m thrilled we get to collaborate again so soon in the name of travel truth. It’s a good thing she’s lived through so many launches: She’s helping me launch a big new feature of to surprise and delight you come September.

More fun facts about Billie: She has lived in Singapore, where in addition to launching Time Out Singapore she became slightly addicted to mangosteens. She has chosen China for her honeymoon and hopes to take that trip soon, as she got married two years ago (they’ve been busy). She conquered her fear of boats by sailing around Halong Bay, Vietnam. She never travels without her compass and a few granola bars (she’s vegetarian, and I’ve heard you don’t want to be around her when she’s hungry and grumpy). One of her favorite travel experiences is to go to The Metropolitan Museum of Art on a Saturday night—when the museum stays open and is not crowded at all—and wander through the Luce Center of visible storage. Last but hardly least, you can always count on her to bring back candy bars from around the world to share with her friends.

You can follow Billie on Twitter @billietravels and on Instagram @billietravels. Please join me in giving her a warm welcome to the WP team.
