a pioneering storyteller on a quest for cuisine
Some travelers follow their hearts -- Kae Lani follows her gut. Obsessed with the history and origins of food, her journies have taken her from exploring the Spice Route through Israel and Europe to searching for the Geisha coffee bean in Panama.
Kae Lani currently works as a Social and Editorial Producer at USA TODAY 10Best, and is a co-founder to the network's newest venture, Eat Sip Trip which launched in November 2017. Eat Sip Trip, which focuses on the cross sections of food, heritage and travel, evolved from an independent project Kae Lani developed in 2016 called Foodful Thinking. When joining the USA Today 10Best team, Kae Lani helped rebrand Foodful Thinking, turning her platform into Eat Sip Trip by working with the team to build out the new publication's business plan and develop a social and editorial strategy.
Eat Sip Trip isn't the only publication Kae Lani has helped bring to life. Kae Lani is also a founding partner of Unearth Women, a print and digital publication focused on women's travel.
Kae Lani has been featured in Billboard, Fodor's Travel, Budget Travel, Yahoo and more. She has been a guest lecturer at several universities, has been a speaker and panelist at multiple conferences, and has made appearances on NASDAQ and Cheddar Life.
