Kiersten Frase is the founder and editor of Oh My Veggies. After earning her master’s degree in Library and Information Studies, she decided to start a blog on a whim while she was between contract jobs and Oh My Veggies was born. A vegetarian since the age of 12, Kiersten taught herself to cook after a few too many years subsisting on frozen veggie burgers, boxed rice mixes, and Doritos. Although she’s originally from Chicago, Kiersten is a southern transplant now living just outside of Raleigh with her husband and their four rescue cats.
