I first got interested in the culinary profession watching my grandparents cook in Oberlin, Ohio, where I grew up. I loved how foods could be paired together, the smell of herbs and seasonings, and learning new cooking methods. My grandparents would sometimes let me help and eventually I was cooking meals for the entire family. I just loved seeing their reactions to my food.
My last two years of high school I attended one of the top vocational schools in the country (Lorain County JVS). During my junior year I was placed on a competitive cooking team. We were trained by the best and as a result our team placed third in the state. Later, I attended Sullivan University in Louisville, KY to focus on culinary arts.
I started Healthy Eating, LLC a few years ago by making a few healthy meals for clients every week while continuing to go to my day job. As the word spread, so did my business. I started advertising, dong free demos at gyms, getting in contact with trainers, and in a matter of 6 months my business grew tremendously.
