How did you start your journey?

I attended the Culinary School at the Art Institute of California, I am certified by the Institute for Integrative Nutrition as a Health Coach and I have a diploma in Gastronomy, Nutrition and Food Trends at Le Cordon Bleu. I worked as a private chef in LA for many years and my food reflects the abundance of fresh produce and flavors from that area. It is Guilt-Free California inspired cuisine with an emphasis on nutritional value, bright flavor combinations and vegetables. I am very experienced in working with food allergies and dietary preferences. You can see some of my dishes on instagram: https://www.instagram.com/healthydot/.

Where is your cuisine inspired from?

In 2000, after many scary years of rapid weight loss, IBS and low energy my father was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. It was at a time when no one had heard the words “Gluten Free” let alone had access to pre-made products. Two years later I was also diagnosed as Celiac. I saw the struggle my mother, who had always been a natural chef, faced to feed us without poisoning us. She bought a bread maker and a pasta machine and we began making everything from scratch. It was in that gluten-free test kitchen that my love for cooking grew. After university I attended the Culinary School at the Art Institute of California, eager to build on my passion for food and specifically health food. I am certified by the Institute for Integrative Nutrition as a Health Coach and I have a diploma in Gastronomy, Nutrition and Food Trends at Le Cordon Bleu. As a Celiac having to learn to manage my own condition, I have a passion to guide other people to do the same. As a Chef learning to love and work with food, and witnessing its effects on the human body, I know that through food we can heal.
