Portland, Oregon Area
Christie Blake is the founder and owner of Roam Mobile Food Conference. Meeting Planner by trade, food lover by day and night. Located in Portland, Oregon she was inspired by the cityscape of over 700 food carts. Also by her very talented culinary school trained brother who has always wanted to start a food truck. Motivated by the lack of resources for these aspiring entrepreneurs, her experience for planning conferences and passion for food, Roam was born! Currently Roam is the only professional development conference for the mobile food industry.
