  • In 2017, Justine traveled to Indonesia for a yoga teacher training where she began her love affair with tropical fruits like papaya, passion fruit, and mangosteen.
  • Any time she travels, Justine seeks out the local farmers market or health food shop and considers grocery shopping a hobby.
  • She is always looking to reduce food waste and finds composting to be soothing.


Justine is a freelance writer and creative strategist who has been writing, marketing, and learning about food in some capacity throughout her career. In addition to her brand strategy work for food and beverage brands at Condé Nast and Food52, Justine has studied food through the Ayurvedic lens. She has also ghostwritten for health and wellness brands. Justine appreciates a green juice as much as she loves a flourless chocolate cake and believes that everything in moderation is the way.
