She is an Adjunct Professor at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, CT, where she resides when she’s not off on an immersion travel opportunity.

She has appeared on MTV, CNN, ABC Weekend Evening News, and NPR.

Review:

“. Sheryl Kayne’s provides a refreshing approach to travel within the United States. Instead of cataloging landmarks, this book guides you to meaningful travel based on volunteering, working or learning experiences. Kayne invites you to engage authentically with unique regional cultures for a trip that is sure to enrich your life and that of the locals.” — Society of American Travel Writers Foundation
