About Nadeen

I am the creator & editor of The Sophisticated Life, LLC. As a physician and as a travel blogger, I believe in living life to the fullest. I take great pride in showing others that you can pursue all your passions in life without limitations. As a wife, a physician, a world traveler and influencer, my life is definitely a balancing act but one that I enjoy immensely.

Based on my background, I am the consummate professional. You can expect quality representation and work done in a timely manner. I am also one of the few black luxury travel bloggers in the industry.

In 2019 I became an Amazon bestselling author for my travel Ebook series. I also started my speaking career on medical and health travel topics as well as culinary travel. Starting in 2020 I will be serving as a brand ambassador for O, The Oprah Magazine as an #OMagInsiders. In 2020 I also became a founding member and board member of the Black Travel Alliance. As a wine enthusiast I pursued and was awarded my first wine certification: WSET (Wine and Spirits Education Trust) Level 2 Award with distinction.

I love exploring the U.S. as well with my favorite places being Hawaii, Sedona, Los Angeles, Martha’s Vineyard, Napa Valley, Chicago, Savannah, New York City, and anywhere with a beach. I will hop on a plane, train or in an automobile at a moment’s notice just to see a part of the world on my bucket list!

Speaker at Wanderful’s Anti-Racism Town Hall for the Travel Industry. Video available on YouTube:

I believe in deeper and meaningful travel whether it is a long or short trip. It is important for me to get to know the history, the people, the food and the culture of the place I am visiting. I share these experiences with my readers in order to inspire and excite them to see the world but to also respect it.

As a foodie, I follow award winning chefs, top restaurants and food festivals. As a wine enthusiast, I enjoy discovering new wines, attending wine tastings, wine festivals and visiting vineyards. I love bringing people together for social events and for travel both here in Atlanta and abroad.
