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 physician, a Black woman and a world traveler showing how to combine the love of travel with food & wine, I am in a class of my own. I bring this uniqueness to all of my blog posts. My life is definitely a balancing act but one that I enjoy immensely.
In addition, I am also an award winning travel blogger as seen in Essence Magazine, on TravelChannel.com, TravelZoo.com & Huffington Post.com. As a jetsetter I have traveled to countries near and far including Thailand, The United Arab Emirates, Canada, Mexico, Cuba, Turks & Caicos, Jamaica, France, Spain, Italy, Greece, England, South Africa as well as cruising the Mediterranean and the Caribbean. I love exploring the U.S. as well with my favorite places being Hawaii, Sedona, Napa Valley, California, 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!
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. As a foodie, I cover 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. Contact me via email: firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more!
