Jennifer Fernandez

Jennifer Fernandez is a freelance writer and former magazine and digital editor who loves learning about the secret rhythms of a destination. She has gone spelunking in the caves of Puerto Rico, cruising down the Red River with Vietnamese locals during Tết (Vietnamese Lunar New Year), and fishing for trout and pike in the lochs of Scotland. Jennifer began her career in travel writing at Martha Stewart Weddings, where she crafted itineraries and provided hotel reviews for would-be honeymooners. Later, she was the books editor at Travel + Leisure. Since then, she's written articles for The Wall Street Journal, Architectural Digest, Esquire, Departures, House Beautiful, Elle Decor, Martha Stewart Living, and more. When she's not looking for her next story, she's seeking out New York's best negroni or exploring Prospect Park with her husband and two daughters at home in Brooklyn.
