I wanted to write long before I entered the professional kitchen. My writing had earned me top grades and public praise in university and an award in culinary school. Comfortable in my career as a chef, I realized a life-long dream when I enrolled in the Creative Writing program at The School for Writers where Sarah Sheard mentored me. I began writing regularly for my blog and quickly discovered I was good at reaching people. I have a particular passion for writing about the experiences of female chefs and the culture of professional kitchens.
I served for three years on the advisory committee for the Joseph Hoare Gastronomic Writer in Residence at the Stratford Chefs School and was a judge for the 2013 Taste Canada cookbook awards.
I have written features for Food & Drink, Zoomer, Eater, and Metro News. My opinion and expertise have been sought by Maisonneuve, Maclean’s, The Globe & Mail and Bon Appetit.
