Joining the Country Roads editorial staff in 2013, Lucie has since pestered legendary chefs, performance artists, master gardeners, Comma Queens, acrobats, landscape architects, microbiologists, and more to share their secrets.

Now managing editor of Country Roads, it's her daily joy to work with regular contributors, welcome new voices, observe the ever-growing local culture, and ruminate endlessly on how best these diverse stories can be shared (and how the heck it all might fit in the print issue). You can reach her at lucie@countryroadsmag.com.
