About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Chef
Location North Carolina, United States
Introduction Devout culinary artists use cooking as an outlet to give their best gifts, and I am no different. Much like my career as an inspirational author and speaker, I use my passion for food as a means of reaching deep into my soul, and feeding others need for creative cuisine that sends them to a place of pure joy. My company, 5 Loaves and 2 Fish, applies the biblical lesson of using what is on hand to create what one needs. Immersing myself in the culinary program at Stratford University was the ideal compliment to my life experiences leading food committees in Misawa, Japan and running my past home-based cake decorating business. As a burgeoning chef, my creativity in the kitchen creates an ideal synergy with my life as a devoted wife, mother, entrepreneur and Christian. When I prepare and serve food, I’m feeding my own bliss just as much as I’m providing it to others. My work is not just about cooking, but about feeding one’s self, physically and emotionally.
