Oh, hello. My name is Grace. Thanks for stopping by.
This blog has been a living breathing part of who I am, since 2008. The name, I admit, is silly. It came randomly after jokingly acknowledging my small hands (they really are) and the way I’m constantly scheming with new ideas for, well, everything. I honestly thought just my mom would read my blog. Little did I know…
This blog has lead to one of my first jobs, business opportunities, freelance writing, so many close friends, being featured on Forbes’ Top 100 Websites for Women, New York Magazine, and on live television, and really, just opened me up to the online world. At this point, it’s essentially the road that began it all.
I work in the tech, startup world as Director of Customer Success at Kapost, in Boulder, Colorado.
I have a serious hankering for food and really the entire process that brings us together, no matter where we’re from or our traditions – it binds us.
To keep that love going, I have a food blog: Grace(full) Plate. It brings me so much joy. Go on over, say hello, drool, peep restaurant reviews, learn about food news, or find a recipe. I run Boulder Food News and am the Boulder features writer for Eater Denver and Boulder Weekly. This is what I call my “jobby” and I do it for fun, on the side.
I’m a dreamer and someone who never goes a day without laughing. I like making people laugh and experiencing the belly clutching kind of laughter that produces tears it’s so good.
I’m irreverent, but mostly loveable mush with some good Italian ‘tude. I have my dual-citizenship with Italy (Italian/Irish). I love to travel, meet new people and explore. I care about my work, my team, collaboration, open communication, and building something meaningful (out of nothing).
My yoga mat is one of the most comfortable happy places for me, but I also find great peace and enjoyment from hiking any mountain, frolicking on a beach, riding horses, fly fishing, or snowboarding the Rockies.
You can probably find me with my friends, hopping on a plane for some traveling, glass of rosé in hand, happy-houring and (lovingly) making fun of those I care about most.
I believe that life is bliss and that most of life happens over a table, with good food and loved ones.
