About The Author
Justine Quart knows everyone calls themselves a foodie in San Francisco, that's why she goes by gastro-ethnologist. Before joining Mission Loc@l, Justine graduated from Brown University with a double major in Ethnic Studies and Visual Arts. In between gypsy stints abroad and working at a community health non-profit, she learned the delicate art of playing roller derby and making the perfect veggie burger. After working at the Discovery Channel Headquarters in Washington DC, Justine migrated to the warmer coasts of California to hone her reporting skills. Aside from food, Justine likes to get nerdy about visual storytelling, experiential journalism, and investigative stories.
