  • Cara previously wrote for a grocery store and retail info site where some of her articles ranked first in Google results and claimed the results page snippets.
  • She tries to attend every festival and event in her area where there will be good eats.
  • Due to her recent heart condition and her partner's gluten intolerance, she has had to pivot in the kitchen and reevaluate her relationship with food and how she writes about it.


For over a decade, Cara has been working as a freelance writer, putting to good use her formidable research skills (and learning excellent time management in the process). She has covered everything from grocery and retail store shopping know-how on QuerySprout to the latest events in her metro area for her city's alt-weekly, the Erie Reader. Her love for writing about food and cooking can be traced all the way back to grade school when she shared a family recipe for savory zeppole and its background with her class.


Cara has a bachelor's degree in English with a writing concentration and a history minor from Edinboro University, as well as a master's in integrated marketing communications from WVU.
