Vanessa Pinto is a freelance writer, fitness instructor, and English language tutor based in Sag Harbor, NY. She received her Master of Arts degree from New York University, though called London her second home during her graduate degree, completing months of research living there and in Oxford. Her writing has been featured in Psychology Today, Long Island Pulse, Study Bridge International, TEACH Magazine, and Pure Wander, to name a few. Vanessa spends a majority of her time trying every fitness class imaginable from SUP Yoga and barre to indoor rowing and trampoline bootcamp, mostly so she could eat dessert everyday, and with an even greater quest of trying every type of lobster roll east of the Shinnecock Canal.
