I moved to Colorado 6 years ago from Carson City, Nevada with my husband Chris. Before moving to Colorado I owned a small catering/personal chef business, “Dinner Is Served”. Along with that, I hosted a ‘Pop Up’ themed dinner monthly at a local cafe where each menu was designed to “eat outside the box” and to introduce folks to the many flavors of the world. During the summers I had a booth at the local farmers market selling “Crepes and Cubanos”. I was introduced to Slow Food International while living in Nevada, the values and principles are something I follow in everyday life.
I have been a Chef/Cook/Baker in and out of restaurants for at least 30 years, from the San Francisco Bay Area, San Diego, Hawaii, and back to Nevada, where I was born. Before joining the culinary world and having children my husband and I traveled extensively throughout Europe, Israel, and Africa. We still manage to take an “adventure” tip every few years. My husband and I raised out three sons in Nevada. We have a granddaughter and grandson here in the Denver area and twin grandsons in Seattle. Our youngest son is a teacher in Nevada.
In my spare time, I love to travel, fly fish, camp, garden, volunteer, and ride my bike. Living in Colorado offers so many opportunities to explore the outdoors and enjoy the beauty of the city with its many choices of restaurants, museums, parks, and volunteer opportunities.
