Hi! Welcome to my classroom site.
I am originally from Chicago, Illinois. Joined the track and field team, marching band, and our FCCLA's culinary arts team in high school.
Decided I wanted to go to culinary school so I enrolled at Johnson & Wales University at the Charlotte campus that fall. Received my A.AS in Culinary Arts '13 and my B.AS in Hospitality Management '15. Worked at a number of restaurants in Illinois and North Carolina. I even had the opportunity to be hired as a chef for the Augusta National Golf Club.
I always wanted to be a teacher when I was younger so I decided to leave the kitchen for a classroom. This is my third year and I could not be more excited to work with the best team and the best students/athletes!
