Brooke Bowen grew up on a lake in Michigan, where she realized that her sense of adventure was greater than most. While studying Economics at DePaul University in Chicago, Brooke worked as a personal assistant to a real estate entrepreneur and used every paycheck to assess the latest brunch deal, attend music festivals and purchase plane tickets to major European cities. Promptly upon graduation, she moved to New York City to pursue a career in the legal world, where she learned that what was most important to her was how she spent her vacation days. At the end of 2011, Brooke left her job in intellectual property litigation to live in Central and South America. It was during that time that she honed her Spanish language skills, discovered a love for travel writing and salsa picante, and realized that her true calling in life was going to be found in the travel industry. Brooke once again lives and works in NYC, where she continues to enjoy exploring the city in search of the next great adventure.
