Kristin is the creator, editor and lead-writer of Four Tickets Please. As serious about food as she is about good verbiage, Kristin loves to eat, travel and tell the world about it. Kristin has lived in the US, Europe, Mexico and most recently traveled to Belize for a 3 month, eat-your-way across the country assignment.
A Bachelor’s in Linguistics, and a bakery-stint funded Master’s Degree in Social work led Kristin to become a therapist who knew how to handle a pastry bag. She began writing about food 4 years ago in a weekly column for the Dow Jones/Seacoast Media Group. Kristin continues her pastry work out of her licensed home kitchen and writes weekly. Her work can be seen at http://www.seacoastonline.com, http://www.travebelize.org, http://www.matador.com and right here.
She lives in New England with her food-and-travel loving family, whom she has convinced to start documenting their own meals.
Becky’s hospitality experience began at the age of seven when her family purchased a vacant 13 room bed and breakfast along the coast of Maine. More than thirty years later, that inn is home to two restaurants and over 55 rooms across five bed and breakfasts. She has held positions in various roles in hospitality from housekeeping and bartending to marketing, front desk, and conference and wedding planning.
After getting married, Becky spent time living in one of her family’s bed and breakfasts as resident innkeeper. She has also owned and operated a small baking company, and writes, along with her sister, Jessica, about food, innkeeping, travel and family for her blog, The Innkeeper’s Daughters.
She holds a bachelor’s degree in Communications from Simmons College and a master’s in Counseling and Higher Education from Northeastern University.
