About The Author

Lensey Wilson

After graduating from Meredith College with a degree in mass communication, I decided to move to West Palm Beach, Florida. Born and raised on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, I could not imagine living too far from a coastal area. After spending nearly two years in Florida, I decided it was time to move back to North Carolina (maybe my love for Bojangles and Carolina barbecue had something to do with it!). I am very thankful that I now get to call Wilmington home and for having a career that lets me do what I love to do.
