From Rebecca's bio: "Rebecca lives in Metro Detroit and is the creator of the vegan travel blog and consulting company Veggies Abroad. The blog showcases mouthwatering lineups of vegan food, action-packed travel guides, tips, and everything else a vegan or veg-curious traveler needs!
On the consulting side, Rebecca uses her 15 years of experience working at the intersection of communications, fundraising, and event management to help non-profits and ethical businesses leverage their missions, reach their goals, and expand their audience.
In 2022, she worked with multiple tourism organizations to promote vegan options in their cities, but she's not stopping there. She plans to expand her efforts throughout the tourism industry, making businesses realize that having vegan options is not only an ethical and environmental decision but a sound business decision too."
