    Sunny Fitzgerald grew up immersed in the health care industry. (Her father worked as the maintenance supervisor of a hospital and her stepmother works in physical therapy and occupational medicine.) An incurable addiction to understanding the lives and landscapes of the world led her to become a writer and travel consultant. Her work has been published in National Geographic, The New York Times, BBC, and more. Sunny has sporadic hemiplegic migraines, a rare neurological condition with symptoms that mimic a stroke.
