Jess writes for other craft beer blogs and contributes to other various websites. Aside from her passion for wine, Jess is an avid foodie and home cook, being married to a chef, it affords her the opportunity to constantly play with creative, healthy recipes as well as recipes made with craft beer. Jess has enjoyed branching out into the beer culture; traveling to different breweries to get inspired by what they’re doing with social media. She created “MOXIE LADY” to showcase her adventures in life; promoting local businesses, helping people discover new and off-the-beaten-path hot spots in the Bay Area as well as all over the U.S through her travels, and building recipes with healthy ingredients that will be fun for the whole family.

In her free time, Jess enjoys continuing to learn how to use her Nikon, writing on her own, cycling, taking day trips to semi-local places to eat, drink, hike, and take photos, hiking with her dog, discovering new places, cooking, working out, and relaxing with friends and family.
