Kristin Lajeunesse is founder of and blogger for the award-winning website Will Travel for Vegan Food. In September 2011, the New York native began traveling throughout the US in an effort to eat at and write about every single all-vegan establishment she can find. Eighteen of those early consecutive travel months were spent living out of a renovated sports van affectionately named Gerty. Almost immediately after beginning her journey, Kristin discovered a deep passion for nomadic and unconventional living, and has since chosen to maintain a mobile lifestyle, indefinitely.
As of July 2014, Kristin met her goal of visiting and eating in each of the 50 states. A self-employed business and lifestyle strategist, Kristin now works with small business owners and entrepreneurs looking to turn their passions into profitable careers. Kristin is also a founding member of the Vegan Weddings HQ website and the Unabridged Addiction podcast. She has a Master of Arts in Integrated Marketing Communication from Emerson College.

Mistress Ginger is your typical quadruple threat diva: singer, dancer, actress, and vegan know-it-all. When she’s not dazzling audiences in the latest Junkyard Theater production, she can be found cooking up tantalizing vegan meals for one or more of her many lovers. Ginger has fueled herself with a vegan diet since 2002, and she’s still alive. Not only that, she’s thriving. In fact, she wrote a cookbook to share her vegan pearls of wisdom with the world at large. Mistress Ginger Cooks!: Everyday Vegan Food for Everyone was published in 2014 and continues to wow the masses with its high-heeled brand of plant-based cookery.The Star Tribune says, “We’ve never thought it possible to use the words ‘vegan’ and ‘glamour’ in the same sentence, until now…” The cookbook is currently available on Amazon, and autographed copies can be purchased at mistressgingercooks.com and at the Fargo-Moorhead VegFest!
We hope to see you there!
