Patricia Conte has a background in marketing communications and works as an independent writer. In 2010, she was given the opportunity to combine her love of writing and food when she started as a contributing writer for the Food channel for SheKnows. As a result, today she spends much of her time divided between the kitchen and her office. Patricia is fortunate to also contribute to the Beauty, Health, and Home and Living channels for SheKnows. You can follow her on Twitter, or visit her food blog, Grab a Plate, where she shares her love of food, recipes and bites in between.
