About Vanessa Orr

Vanessa Orr is a Pittsburgh-based journalist who loves road trips and animal rescue, which could partly explain how she ended up living with a Mackenzie River husky in Alaska for seven years. A freelance writer for the past two decades, she has written features for a wide range of local, regional and national publications, and is known for hopping in the Jeep on a moment’s notice to conduct first-hand research. Current projects include fixing up a broken-down Dodge Dakota and finding loving homes for the furry passengers she’s picked up in her travels.
