I have grown up in the hospitality industry and love it! I have been serving guests for over 26 years, and have always loved to cook! From the early age of 8, I was eager to learn everything I could about food and restaurants. I am no stranger to hard work, starting as a dishwasher at the young age of 14, and balancing school and work. Throughout the years, I fell in love with customer service-based businesses. Starting at The Keg Steakhouse & Bar in 1994, I worked hard and was promoted to management at the young age of 20, and have not stopped developing, learning and growing as a leader since!

I specialize in coaching, hiring, training and developing great team members and leaders at all levels. I have a proven track record of achieving growth and driving profitability by putting the customer first and the team member a very close second.
