after a quick stint in corporate, I left to follow my dreams and pursue my passion - health & wellness. i got certified to teach pilates ( a fitness regimen I still swear by) and worked with clients all across Chicago. what i quickly found was that my clients had a difficult time reaching their health goals due to the food component. wanting to provide them with a one-stop solution, i decided to go to culinary school and combine food + fitness for my clients. that kicked off my life's trajectory into the world of food.
