Tell me about yourself:
I was born in El Paso, Texas, and I moved a lot with my family. I have two beautiful daughters, 13 and 9. I love to be outside, going for walks, listening to music and I love cooking!
How did you break into the culinary field?
I started to cook with my mom at home, through the years watching her, I gained a love for it myself. As I got older I began to cook with my mom and it led to me to the commercial side.
What is the best thing you have learned on the job?
I learn many different things daily. What I love the most are all the tricks each Chef teaches me. The people I work with have so many ways to do things, it amazes me!
What is your favorite thing about work?
One of the reasons I love to cook is because you never know what you’re going to find when going through a produce cooler. The best thing is finding funny shaped product. I always take pictures of them and post them to give everyone else a little giggle!
What is your favorite meal to make at home?
I love enchiladas! They are so tasty, especially when I make them! If I’m not cooking that, I’m making my famous homemade macaroni & cheese! That’s the stuff!!
