About Me

The first thing to know about me - I love food.  I love ALL food!!  I grew up in a family that centered every event around food; food to show our love for each other and food to nourish our souls.

I've worked with food my entire life.  By the time I was 30 I had worked in 15 different restaurants in almost every capacity.  My love for food and desire to work regular hours led me to a dream job at CHEF Catalog for 8 years.  After the closing of CHEFS, my business partner and I opened The Cooks Marketplace, a local kitchen store with a cooking school.  And my life changed forever...

Until then, I knew how to write menus, recipes and how to use every kitchen gadget known to man.  What I didn't know was how much I would love teaching people how to cook.  I found my calling.

After closing our store, I couldn't think of anything I would ever do with my life other than teaching people how to cook.  I am excited to be able to continue my dream and bring education, laughter and joy to your kitchens.

Happy Cooking,
