About me

A wife and mother. And a poet. I got my chef certification at age 20. I have spent time as a stage hand, working on such things as Cirque Du Soleil. I also spent time as a biomedical tech.

After having children I was able to focus on who I am and where I really want to be --- and that was back in the culinary field. Now I am a student who is close to completing a degree in Professional Baking & Pastry Arts Management. I have many interests, including photography and enjoy sharing my love of food and use of creative writing. I hope to start my own baking business in the future.

Welcome to The Chocolate Life.

I see from your blog @ Foodbuzz that you studying somewhere in Oregon. Many years ago I lived in Portland and worked at KBOO-FM. Are you going to be going to the World Pastry Forum this summer in Nashville? I may be teaching a course on taste there.
