  • Bernadette has traveled to five of the seven continents. She's missing South America and Antarctica, but those are high on her bucket list.
  • She's an expert on Airbnbs, particularly in locations abroad, and loves sourcing the best places to stay on a dime.
  • When she's not traveling, she's reading travel literature for the spirit of adventure in those texts.


Bernadette began writing in entertainment at Floor 8 and joined Nicki Swift News in February 2020, thanks to her love of celebrity news and coverage of the royal family. She's always been interested in entertainment news and reality TV, so it was an easy transition to begin writing about it. She became a feature writer for the site and joined The List, covering these topics with vigor. She was a pioneer writer for the brand and eventually moved to Explore, where she satisfies her love for all things travel.


Bernadette received a bachelor's degree in English literature from St. Mary's University in Calgary, Alberta. She graduated from the University of Victoria in 2014 with a master's in English literature. In May 2019, she graduated from SUNY Binghamton with a PhD in English and creative writing.‌
