Passion and love for food were inspired by always watching and helping her mom cook. When she was in college she used to always cook for her roommates. She received her Bachelor's in Food Science and Business Management (from Florida A&M University in 2009) and graduated from Le Cordon Bleu in 2012. It was here that she expanded her knowledge of food and got formal training. On her culinary journey, she worked for Mariott for 6 years under the leadership of many great chefs. Owning her own business has always been the ultimate goal. She also has a love for people and serving, which fueled her desire to be a business owner.
