Jess Dawson

Los Angeles, CA

A native Californian who grew up in Ohio and has been a Winnebago-traveling nomad since 2018, Jess Dawson has been writing and editing for almost two decades. She's had the honor of collaborating with all kinds of awesome humans from Lyft and Slack to GitHub, Square, BetterUp, Squarespace, The Regenerates, and, of course, Roadfood. She (clearly) loves to travel, is obsessed with dogs, and loves a good condiment. Regardless of where she's at, her happy place is staying in and watching a movie with her husband and pup Scarlet.
