Gretchen grew up in Virginia, but was reminded of her New England roots in 2008 when she moved to Boston as a student, and hasn’t left since—except for one stint in Los Angeles. Gretchen fell in love with Boston when the spontaneity of the MBTA forced her to give up public transport and explore on her own two feet. Her favorite thing about Boston is the landscape, architecture and the characters she meets here. She tends to wander, but if there are oysters and wine she will stay put!
