about me...

Born and raised in Los Angeles, food has always been a huge part of my life, but studying abroad in Rome and attending Parson's School of Design in New York City is where my appetite for all things food really grew. 

Living in New York City for nearly 20 years, I worked in the food service  industry and photographed food for restaurant websites and social media. 

Since moving back to LA a few years ago to spend more time with family, I have been lucky enough to develop my love of food into becoming a personal chef and personal food shopper for many LA families.

what i do...

Focusing on seasonal healthy comfort food, I shop at Farmer’s Markets for the freshest locally grown products.  I create meal plans based on the clients' diet, restrictions and preferences; prepping, cooking and portioning out meals for the week. 

My services can also be gifted to new or expecting parents, making healthy and delicious choices for the family possible.

I also cater small dinner and cocktail parties.  Please refer to my sample catering/party menu page-
