About the Chef
I started my Personal Chef business in March 2000 serving the Phoenix Metropolitan area. I moved to Delaware in August 2001 and have brought my culinary skills to the Dover and Wilmington metropolitan areas! I became interested in cooking right after college (mid 1980ís). I started subscribing to Cooking Light magazine and would immediately read it from front to back the day it arrived in the mail. Not only did I read the magazines, I enjoyed making the delicious healthy recipes. I have had years of practice in lightening up fat laden recipes without compromising on taste. Even if you're not counting calories I'd love to cook for you.
I received my culinary education through the Art Institute of Phoenix and graduated with highest honors in 2001. I received my personal chef business training from the United States Personal Chef Association. Prior to moving to Delaware, I was chapter president for the local USPCA Phoenix chapter. I'm the former and founding president of the USPCA Mid-Atlantic chapter.
In November 2001, I completed my requirements with the USPCA to become a Certified Personal Chef and was recertified in 2006. I'm also a ServSafe certified food manager. I understand and have been tested on the principles of safe food handling. In September 2005, I renewed my ServSafe certification in order to keep current with changes in food safety.
