Beth Puliti is a freelance writer and photographer with a dual interest in outdoor/adventure and health/wellness. After studying journalism and photography at Arcadia University, she went on to hold editor positions in both the cycling and healthcare industries. Her images have been featured everywhere from book and magazine covers, to product packaging and trade show booth walls. Beth’s work frequently mirrors her personal life and she recently authored a longtime recurring magazine column about international bicycle travel while simultaneously cycling through 24 countries in 24 months.

Following more than a decade in the publishing industry, Beth completed a rigorous study of the evidence emphasizing the health benefits of a whole foods plant-based diet, and graduated from Cornell University’s T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies with a certificate in plant-based nutrition. Beth credits open-heart surgery for both inspiring her to explore the world’s most extraordinary landscapes by human power and influencing her desire to learn about nutrition’s role in preventing disease.

While a love for the outdoors motivated Beth and her husband to build a passive-solar home to LEED certification standards in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, today they live and work in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
