BACKGROUND

Story Clark has dedicated her life to land conservation. She assists land trusts and local communities in creating awareness about the importance of the special places they treasure. TravelStorysGPS began its journey with a tour from Jackson to Teton Pass in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, in 2013, and has grown over 200 tours nationwide and internationally. It is a female-owned and -led software-as-a-service company and Best Mobile App Awards 2018 April winner for best mobile app design. Not only was the tech company founded by a woman, but it is also run by a team of strong, resourceful women, who build outstanding rapport with their clients and have a genuine love and connection to the land. Clark explains, “Storytelling is the captivating and enduring way that we entertain and communicate best with each other and learn about places. I wanted to use mobile app technology as a portal to, rather than a barrier from, connecting us to great places. Even if a listener never gets out of his or her car, TravelStorys uniquely and meaningfully connect people with land.” Learn more at Travelstorys.com and download and explore the free TravelStoryGPS app on the App Store and Google Play Store.
