  • Neala spent over a decade in the restaurant industry, with roles ranging from slinging drinks to pretzel baking.
  • Her travels have given her an adventurous palate and she'll try anything put on her plate.
  • She loves spending all her free time in the kitchen and is currently studying for the American Cheese Society's Certified Cheese Professional® Exam.


Neala's food obsession began at birth and her penchant for writing soon followed. After bouncing between internships and other unpaid writing ventures, she landed her first apprenticeship as a food writer with Eat Boutique. Her freelance writing career blossomed from there, and she's worked with dozens of food businesses as a copywriter while writing for a variety of platforms. Her writing can be found on sites such as Mashed, Cooktop Cove, and What Should We Do.


Neala headed to Spain to study Spanish and literature before later receiving her B.F.A. in Creative Writing while working on an apple orchard in New Zealand. Strengthening her writing while exploring new cultures and cuisines gave her a fresh perspective and a passion for food.
