Hey, There! I'm Lynette.

A freelance website developer, writer, SEO and content marketer, I’m from the U.S., but have been living and working in Costa Rica for more than two decades.  

With years of experience in direct marketing, as well as inbound marketing, I have helped countless businesses build their online presence, get found, and increase brand awareness and sales. 

I started 8 Snap Communications in 2009 after a corporate layoff gave me the nudge I needed to start my own gig.

Over the years, I helped business owners in numerous industries with their SEO and content marketing needs, but the two industries that have most impacted my life have been travel and cannabis. 

As an expat and a traveler, I’ve been fortunate to be able to experience many wonderful properties around the world. In 2013 I created a travel blog for visitors to Costa Rica. A labor of love, Travel On Costa Rica is a work in progress and continues to grow as I explore this wonderful country and share it with others. 

In 2017 as the cannabis industry started to blossom and help people all over the world, I started to work with a few CBD and medicinal marijuana companies. As a result, I became passionate about plant medicine and the benefits of a naturopathic approach to whole living.  Thus, I created Pura Vida Cure. Also a passion project, Pura Vida Cure is all about promoting an educated, balanced, respectful approach to mind, body, spirit and planet.
