How Can I Help You
I started my personal chef service business in 1998 after many years in the business world. I enjoyed cooking and eating and thought I could help people enjoy meals at home.
After a couple years, I decided to try teaching cooking classes and discovered that I loved teaching. All ages, a variety of venues, school nutrition professionals, library programs, individuals.
Since 2006, I've been a product specialist with KitchenAid providing training and demonstrations on counter top appliances.
Since 2008, I've been a Georgia Library Performer providing cooking programs to libraries in Georgia.
Since 2014, I've been a trainer with The Institute of Child Nutrition teaching food service professionals at schools across the country.
In 2020, I decided to focus on teaching people how to cook to be able to enjoy delicious meals, save money and reduce life stresses.
I love the variety of my jobs and the personal interactions.
