I am a certified Pastry Chef, Master Baker and licensed Food Service Manager & Director, with more than thirty years of food service training in all areas of the food service industry, I am passionate about leading a healthy lifestyle through fitness and nutritious cuisine. I use fresh, high quality ingredients to prepare meals that a healthy and balanced diet with loads of energy giving foods: lean proteins, whole grains and fresh vegetables.
I work with individuals that are working to obtain their fitness goals and looking to get the maximum results for their diet, but may not have the time or the know-how to prepare healthy meals. My goal is to assist clients in making healthier choices in eating healthy without having to sacrifice flavor or variety: “ I am out to show the world that they can indulge in a healthier version of their favorite foods and that they can have their cake and eat it too. I call it “Having a Sweet and Healthy Life!”
I can cook and create anything, but my passion is pastries and desserts and my specialty is the Italian cuisine.
