Bio

Every day, I do my best to inspire students to go above and beyond in not only in cooking, but also in their lives and their community. As a culinary educator, I believe that you can never tell where a teacher’s influence stops. I’m glad to have had such great teachers in my life, and to have the opportunity to pass along their lessons.
