Boulder School of Natural Cookery, Boulder - Certificate in Culinary Arts
I was born and raised in New Mexico and Oklahoma. By the time I reached the age of 18, I moved to Boulder where I have lived for over half my life. While Colorado is home, I still travel to New Mexico several times each year to visit our family farm.
I was a Nanny for 15 years before I had my daughter, Sofie (Friends’ School graduate of 2005). At that time, I started a small daycare in my home so that I could be a stay-at-home mom and began studying at the Boulder School of Natural Cookery. When Sofie was old enough to go to school, I started my own personal chef business so that I could create a schedule that worked around being a single parent.
In 1997, I started volunteering at Friends’ and catering some of the events. In 2000, when Sofie was in second grade at Friends’, I began the school’s lunch program. Recently, my role has expanded to include managing numerous events during the school year and the school building during the summer. I am now doing all the things I love which are being a parent, being around children and cooking.
