About Girl Gone Smart

I am a passionate reader who grew up in Northern New York and has lived in Albany, the Capital District, for over 20 years. 

My love for reading brought me to travel around the world and I'm not quite done yet! Along the way I have met amazing people, had fantastic experiences, and learned so much. All of this ties together in who I am. Much of what I read inspires my travels and certainly vice versa. 


It's all meshed for me and it's my core.

I began writing for our city's local newspaper in 2015 and within a year, won 2nd place in the Best of the Capital Region bloggers. I left the newspaper in 2017 after differences in integrity. They were lacking and doing a disservice to the wonderful bloggers who write for them (for free) and for the readers who checked every day for new posts. It has given me a chance to do this, however, which is absolutely the best place for me to be.

It's also the best place for several other bloggers who talk about a variety of topics like food, marriage, family, etc., and I'm sure we have your interests covered! Head to The Blog and see what's new in a variety of categories.
