I started my personal chef service business in 1998. I enjoyed cooking all of my life but was pretty sure restaurant work wasn't for me. Working a full time corporate job didn't leave time for culinary school either.
I did some research, discovered personal cheffing and thought I'd give it a try. Although I've loved my personal chef years, in 2020 I decided to focus on teaching.
I enjoy working with people of all ages, individually or in small groups giving them the confidence to plan, create and enjoy delicious meals.
I've taught at Cook's Warehouse, Metropolitan Cooking Show, many Georgia libraries and in client homes.
I've been a trainer for The Institute of Child Nutrition since 2014 teaching school nutrition professionals across the country.
Good tools are key, and I have been fortunate to work with KitchenAid as a product specialist for countertop appliances since 2006. I've trained retail customers, consumers, KitchenAid employees and worked houseware shows.
I love the variety of my jobs and like seeing people gain confidence and knowledge. And have fun with food.
After all the years, I love my jobs!
