  • Born and raised in the Baltimore area.
  • Graduated from University of Baltimore in 1995 with a degree in business management.
  • Spent first part of career as a construction accountant.
  • In 1998 I was looking for a career change,so I purchased a mobile kitchen. That lead to a bar/tavern, seafood carry-out and finally a cafe.
  • October 2009 I became an authorized ServSafe ® instructor and proctor.
  • October 2014 I received my CP-FS from National Environmental Health Association.
  • I teach my students the Why? behind the regulations. I believe this creates a better learning environment, rather than memorizing the information for the day.
  • To me this is not just a job, I love teaching students about food safety. My reward is when students tell me I am the best instructor they ever had and now they understand the whys not just the rules.
