As a travel writer, I was lucky enough to spend my days sleuthing for the best spots to soak up the American West – from biking in Snoqualmie Valley, WA and backcountry skiing in the Sierras to carless Christmas shopping in Littleton, CO. As a food writer, I played in the Sunset test kitchen, researched topics like the history of farmers’ markets, and, well, ate a lot of food. Across 25+ stories, I shared my discoveries with millions of readers.
