Meet the Writer

First of all, thank you for finding Jack and Peaches and taking some time to explore. It realimage1ly means a lot to me.

I am a 24-year-old transitioning vegan living in Iowa and spend my time becoming friends with the soybeans and with my miniature Schnauzer, Charlie. I’m currently navigating life as a single, young adult. Someday I’ll travel to Southern Asia and hike through Thailand and Cambodia. By day I’m a copywriter in the college enrollment marketing industry and by night I am an undercover book-reader, vegan, and professional nap-taker.

You can read about why I decided to transition to the vegan lifestyle here.

Jack and Peaches is a combination of two of my nicknames. Jack from my college nickname “Jack Daniels” (not because I like whiskey but because I had Southern charm and prided myself on being a lady but still had a fiery personality. Similar to whiskey. I didn’t pick it out) and “Peaches”, which I got in high school from one of my best friends.

I created Jack and Peaches as an outlet to share my recipes, experience transitioning to veganism, and thoughts as I discover myself and who I am as a young woman. I hope that you like this website and that you find it humorous, inspiring, and comforting wherever you may be in your life and on the globe. I always like reading blogs that come from people I can relate to.
