Her recipes and photography have also appeared on Greatist.com, and her writing has been featured on The Huffington Post, Gotham-Magazine.com and WNYC.org, among others. Perry holds a master’s degree from the City University of New York Graduate School of Journalism, but hails from Denver, Colorado.
