Bio

Debbra Dunning Brouillette has always been a tropical girl. Like a fish out of water, she was born and raised in the Midwest but from the age of seven, Florida vacations opened up her world to sun, sand and turquoise water. On her first Caribbean trip to Jamaica, a snorkeling excursion introduced her to an incredible new world that exists below the surface of the sea. The fish out of water was hooked. A scuba diver and avid photographer, she enjoys exploring the reefs and natural wonders, meeting the natives, and finding what makes each island unique. She also is a self-described “foodie” and enjoys savoring the food and wine wherever her travels take her.

Her articles and photos have appeared in the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram, Indulge, AAA Home & Away and Evansville Living magazines; online digital outlets, including JohnnyJet.com, TravelWorld magazine, Joseph Rosendo’s Travelscope e-newsletter and TravelSquire.com; as well as her own site, TropicalTravelGirl.com. She is a Contributor to GettingOnTravel.com, which focuses on luxury travel over 50, and is Associate Editor of Food Wine Travel magazine, published by the International Food Wine Travel Writers Assn. (IFWTWA).

She has received awards for her writing and photography in NATJA’s (North American Travel Journalists Assn.) annual competition honoring the best in travel journalism. Debbra has also served as co-author or editor for two books in the food and nutrition area. She co-authored “Goodbye, Fat Guy” with Starke Taylor and served as editor of “I’ll Start on Monday: Overcoming Your Weight Loss Excuses” by Mardi Allen.
