Technomadia

Chris and Cherie started full time RVing in 2006, working remotely as software and technology consultants. They now split their time between their vintage bus conversation and a motor yacht cruising the east coast of the US. They share their travel life as Technomadia.com on their blog and YouTube. After years of answering the question ‘How do you get mobile internet to work remotely?’ too many times - they wrote a book and then launched the Mobile Internet Resource Center focusing on this one niche topic. It combines their passions of technology, mobility and helping others achieve their dreams.

Chris and Cherie are honored to have been part of the launch of RVillage and Xscapers, and are the Tech Host of the upcoming PBS TV Show ‘The RVers’ debuting later this year.

Camille Attell

Founder of More Than A Wheelin’ & Creator of Remote Work School.

Camille's grandparents taught her to "go to school, get a job, and buy a house" which is exactly what she did until she walked away from a twenty-plus year career in corporate America.

Since 2016, she and her husband, Bryce, have been traveling around the country while working from their RV. They’ve covered over 30,000 miles, and hit 30 states—all while learning how to find remote jobs, create income streams, and re-invent themselves professionally.

Camille combines her long experience in corporate training with her Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology to offer Remote Work School, a successful online program where she teaches others how to work remotely so they can live life on their terms.
