Lisa Barry

Lisa grew up in a suburb of Kansas City but has been on the move ever since she graduated with her English degree in 2011. For two years she traipsed around New England, getting her career in journalism off the ground, and is currently a freelance writer based in Vero Beach, Fla. When she isn't trying to craft her next travel or human interest piece, she is probably busy eating pizza or sampling every pastry at the nearest bakery. You can find out more about her at
