East of Nowhere, LLC – Bigger Life, Smaller Living
​Land and lifestyle opportunities in the U.S. and Costa Rica

Kennerly Clay has had her own marketing communications business since 2001. A seasoned writer and editor, she has contributed to numerous magazines and newspapers. She now works as a health and medical content writer for a hospital health system in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She recently published an ebook about mysteries and secrets in her DNA and she is writing a memoir about dads, daughters and drinking. Her interest in ex-pat living is not a new one, but it has been spurred on by the increasingly uncomfortable political climate in the United States. Every place has its problems but the “pura vida” mentality in Costa Rica suits her, as does the idea of living in harmony with the earth rather than ravaging it even more.
