A chef in my previous life, I cooked at the highest levels of the profession for many years. I turned to culinary education out of a desire to give back & help the next level of culinarians reach similar heights. I taught successfully a a premiere culinary institute for years. Culinary education gave way to higher education & I have worked for many years in instructional design & technology. I received my M.Ed in Education, Learning & Technology, 2011 from Western Governors University and I started at Rush University, Chicago in July of 2018 as an Instructional Designer.
