my story

With just two suitcases and a dream, in 2012, I moved to Orvieto—a picturesque hill town in the Umbria region of Italy. Today, I work as an independent blogger, travel writer and copy editor whose work has been featured in publications like The Telegraph, DK Eyewitness travel guides, Closer Weekly and Italy Magazine. My personal blog, Orvieto or Bust, chronicles my adventures as a scrappy American woman living abroad, and I’ve shared my journey on broadcasts such as House Hunters International, The Food Police, The BitterSweet Life and The Iceberg Project.

A Californian by birth, I’m an Orvietana by adoption.
