Local Eats, Michelin-Star Rated Restaurants, Taste Testing
  • Jenn has eaten her way across 24 countries, from small villages in Morocco to Michelin-star restaurants in Malta.
  • She is a foodie at heart, enjoying everything from guilty pleasure snacks to cooking up health-forward meals.
  • So long as she's not allergic to the ingredients, Jenn is a daring eater, willing to try any food at least once.


Jenn joined the writing team for Today Meal in 2023. She has been traveling the world since she was 15 years old. She's a self-proclaimed travel hacker with budget and eating tips and tricks for explorers of all kinds. She's often flying solo on the road, discovering new locations, foods, and cultures as a digital nomad. In 2018, Jenn created a podcast called "Someone Needs to Hear It," which launched her into the writing world, helping her cultivate international connections that propelled her career. While her passion was once teaching, travel is now her lifeblood. Jenn left the classroom in 2021, but she uses those educational skill sets to help others see the world, working with clients to craft wellness retreats and unique adventure immersions. Jenn believes if we travel with the intention of learning, we can and will make this world a better place for all. And that starts with a stellar meal in a new place, making new friends while breaking local bread.


Jenn has a bachelor's degree in psychology from Salem State University and two master's degrees in English literature and teaching from Simmons University in Boston.
