“If you can’t feed a hundred people,
then feed just one.” – Mother Theresa
I was born and raised in Sterling, Connecticut. My interest in nutrition all started with food. Growing up, I was always exploring my mother’s spice cabinet, looking up recipes and cooking whenever I got the chance. This interest brought me to Johnson & Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island to pursue a degree in Culinary Arts. I quickly realized the power culinary arts and nutrition could have when combined together and I hopes to share this with others. I graduated from Johnson & Wales University in 2016 with a Bachelor of Science in Culinary Nutrition. On campus, I was captain of the Women’s tennis team and involved in the Collegiate Ambassador Team and Sans Gluten. I have had many experiences working within the foodservice industry as a Chef at Gillette Stadium and The Sagamore Resort. The past year I worked at the USDA Beltsville Human Nutrition Center assisting with clinical nutrition research studies and developed and taught nutrition education programs for Montgomery County Department of Recreation. In my free time, I enjoy being outdoors, hiking, going to the zoo and spending time with my family and friends.
