About Ashleigh

june2016_v2I was bitten by the travel bug while exploring Europe in a summer abroad and I’ve been scratching the itch ever since. I use every opportunity to travel and immerse myself in a new culture. When traveling I enjoy learning about the local foods and drinks and consuming as much as my pants will allow. I’m an adventurous soul with a focus on responsible tourism. I developed a love for good food while studying to become a chef in High School, and continued to hone the craft for years after in different positions.

When not traveling, I live in Raleigh, North Carolina with my evil cat, Zillah. I work for an industrial technology company as a digital marketing manager to pay for all my travels. I enjoy practicing Krav Maga, drinking craft beer, and supporting my community through art and social causes. Please, join me while I explore the world, one bite at a time.
