Dion Nicole is a Carolina native living in Washington, DC. After a short lived stint in politics, she walked away for life as a dogooder. She currently works in food policy. After some haranguing from its founder, she started blogging for Postbourgie in the summer of 2010 . She enjoys peas, the color green, farmers markets, and the Dallas Cowboys. She does not like mangoes. She'd like it if you'd call her Nicole.
