I began cooking with my mom before I was tall enough to reach the countertops. She taught me to read a recipe and follow instructions until I had enough experience to improvise in the kitchen. This began a lifelong love of great food and cooking knowing that it brings together family and friends and creates wonderful memories. My love of cooking had me watching every cooking show and buying every cookbook I found plus trading recipes with friends. Over the years I've learned which flavors taste good together and how to make recipes of my own. Finally, in the summer of 2011 I took my first course. This was The Main Course Certificate Program, a plant-based, organic cooking class at the School of Natural Cookery in Boulder, Colorado
The knowledgeable instructors taught me the art of intuitive cooking, to cook without recipes and reinforced the importance of natural, non-processed food. That course inspired me to start my personal chef business and to help folks find healthy alternatives to the typical American diet of fatty, sugary, over-processed foods.
In December of 2012, I graduated from the Nutrition Therapy Institute, Inc. https://ntischool.com/ Certified Natural Foods Personal Chef program. I am ServSafe certified.
I became a vegetarian at age 28 for the welfare of animals. Since then, I've learned the health benefits of a vegan diet. My hope is to show people it is possible to enjoy a healthy diet that doesn't contain animal flesh.
