After re-careering out of the training/career development field, Mindy, a San Diego native, was ready to make her avocation her vocation and she, together with her husband, Jerry, launched Tour Freely - a GPS audio tour company. Jerry’s passion for research and storytelling was aligned, given his background in medical research, which syncs up with his love of historical research, local culture and technology in creating the tours. Jerry was also raised in San Diego and then in Los Angeles areas and he has always appreciated the beauty and rich history of Southern California.
As a career coach/trainer, Mindy was focused on helping others explore to find their spark and “Follow their bliss.” She is now on a parallel path helping others experience the simple joy of exploring new regions, follow their wanderlust and curiosity through unique sightseeing adventures.
Together, they enjoy sharing their appreciation with visitors and locals. They have created four tours - Three walking tours (La Jolla, Sunset Strip and Santa Barbara) and one driving tour of San Diego. Their most recent addition is the Santa Barbara walking tour. Jerry and Mindy met at the gorgeous UC Santa Barbara campus and so it was only fitting they added the Santa Barbara tour to their portfolio of Southern Californian tours.
