Maria grew up in Kentucky surrounded by every pet you could possibly imagine – goats, rabbits, chickens, pigs, a skunk and, of course, a dog or two. So, imagine the culture shock when she found herself following love to an apartment in the city of Chicago. Fast forward to 17 years later and she now sees Chicago as home. She’s worked as a business analyst for a small startup in Cincinnati and in category management for the largest liquor company in the world. Her true love has always been writing and after years of writing for her own blog, she started as a freelance writer for Red Tricycle. She’s now living her dream as the Chicago Editor.
