A freelance writer whose work has appeared in Reuters, Chicago Sun-Times, Austin Statesman and more. A cook and traveler, she's eaten her way across several countries including China, Japan, Italy, Germany, Chile, Ecuador, Peru, Argentina, and more. Clambered over Machu Picchu, walked icebergs in Antarctica, and dove to explore a shipwreck 100 feet below the waters of Curaçao. She has yet to fulfill her dream of filling a passport before it expires, but she vows to keep trying. She is currently working on a book about heritage pigs and the farmers who love them.
