Rachelle Lucas (Running Unopposed for First Vice Chair)

I am excited to run for the position of First Vice Chair of the Digital Publishers Council (DPC). With a background in digital publishing spanning over 16 years, I am eager to bring my experience, insights, and enthusiasm to this role.

Since 2008, I have immersed myself in the world of online digital publishing. First, while blogging as an innkeeper to share recipes and stories of our town to entice travelers to book longer stays at our inn. Then, as a food and travel writer for VisitFlorida.com as their Dining Insider, and a writer and publisher for my own site, TheTravelBite.com.

My journey began at a time when digital content was just starting to gain traction. Over the years, I have witnessed and adapted to the rapid evolution of the industry, from the rise of social media platforms to the shift towards mobile-first content. This experience has equipped me with a deep understanding of the challenges that digital publishers face today.

Throughout my career, I have successfully navigated the complexities of content creation, audience engagement, and monetization. I have also completed numerous successful digital campaigns, leveraging my skills in SEO, and social media marketing. These efforts have given me a well rounded perspective on what it takes to thrive in the digital publishing landscape.

As First Vice Chair of the DPC, I am committed to using my experience to benefit our community. And I am excited to help organize a range of events and opportunities for our digital publishers. From casual meetups where members can share experiences and challenges to more structured, paid campaigns.

I am committed to ensuring that our events add tangible value to our members. Whether it’s through learning new skills, discovering new tools, or making valuable connections, I look forward to working closely with the council to brainstorm and implement initiatives that foster a supportive and proactive community.

Thank you for your support.
