Leigh (Chavez) Bush is a half-breed of New Jersey and Colorado, she has tasted her way across the country and around the world several times over and deems American pastries under-appreciated. Leigh is in the IU Food Studies program and would like to use her Ph.D. to bring people closer to their food by way of understanding human's social and emotional mind. She also enjoys the occasional bag of Doritos.
