"My specialty is working with clients to create an intimate and memorable experience that feels effortless and enables them to "be a guest at their own gathering". I have branched out to be involved with cooking demonstrations and classes, after many years in the catering trenches. I have been evolving into this role for many years. I am excited to be working with Whole Foods, Vegetarian, Vegan, Raw and Gluten Free, because I am very passionate about Holistic Nutrition and believe that "You are what you eat". However, I am not limited in what I will prepare for my clients. Having worked with a number of industry leaders, I feel that one of my greatest strengths is my ability to adapt to my surroundings. I have made myself at home in more kitchens than I can count.
