About Julie

Hi!  My name is Julie Cohn and I am the writer and publisher of A Cork, Fork, & Passport, a popular digital lifestyle e-magazine, now in its 11th year of publication. I am an accomplished food, travel, and lifestyle expert, as well as a professional recipe developer and wine/cocktail mixologist. 99.9% of the recipes on A Cork, Fork, & Passport are my original creation. I recently started a quest to balance good eating with a healthier lifestyle and will be writing more about my experiences in 2020.  

In addition to writing for my own publication, I have worked as a freelance travel writer for other print and online publications including the London Telegraph and Parks and Travel magazine. As a specialist in social media marketing and technology, with extensive WordPress, web design, and digital marketing experience, I have been designated a travel expert by Flipboard and was a featured speaker at the 2018 Women in Travel Summit in Quebec.  

Passionate about combating age discrimination in digital marketing, especially for women, I am the former director of The Midlife Perspective, a group of  midlife food, travel, and lifestyle bloggers/creators.

As a 28+ year veteran of the travel industry as a corporate travel manager & meeting planner, I manage my own travel agency, Luxe Journeys Travel, a full-service agency specializing in corporate and luxury leisure travel and concierge services.

I am a member of the North American Travel Journalist Association, The International Travel Writers Alliance, and The American Society of Travel Advisors. My travel writing profile can be viewed on TravMedia.

I am a wife, mother, and doxie lover. Born in Pennsylvania and raised in upstate New York,  my husband and I are now empty nesters living in Arizona, with an adult son away at college.   One of my favorite websites is my son (Nick’s) fictional fantasy and science fiction serial site, Cohnquest.com When not working, I enjoy cooking, reading, hiking, skiing, and photography.  

Thank you for visiting, I hope you enjoy A Cork, Fork, & Passport!
