About She Jaunts

How it all started

Hi! My name is Dee and I am a California native who  grew up in the enchanting city of San Francisco.

I started blogging before blogging was even a term. My first website, Blackberry Jam, was created to empower and celebrate the accomplishments of African American women. My first successful blog was a hyperlocal lifestyle blog focused on living in Harlem, New York called Uptownflavor. I launched Uptownflavor in 2006 and it grew for 7 years until I decided to relocate. Upon establishing myself in the nation's capital I launched Beyond Brunch. Beyond Brunch is what set the stage for She Jaunts, a travel + lifestyle blog. 

About Me

How I caught the travel bug

I  spent 3 years of my childhood on the tropical island of Guam where I was first bitten by the travel bug. I visited Japan, China, and other Micronesian islands while living overseas. During my adult years I have lived in various cities on both coasts and have driven across the US twice. Over the past few years I've had the strong urge to travel again. I am so excited to share my adventures with you on this website.
