Deborah Smith

A born and bred Jersey Shore native, Deborah Smith is the founder of JerseyBites.com, a food blog launched in 2007 that reports on food news and restaurant reviews in the Garden State. The site is now home to more than thirty food writers (known as the Biters) and engages with over 30,000 fans daily on all the major social media channels.

In her role as executive editor of Jersey Bites, Deborah served as a founding member of Jersey Shore Restaurant Week and most recently as a judge for Jersey Shore Restaurant Week’s Taste Awards. Over the years, she has served as a judge for numerous food competitions and been invited to speak about food in New Jersey both live and on the air. She is a proud mom to two amazing teenage boys and resides in Point Pleasant Beach with her “better half” Peter and their two dogs.

If you like to be social, you can connect with Deborah pretty much everywhere on social media using the JerseyBites name. And you can find her on LinkedIn here.
