Knowing what you know now, what advice would you give your 21-year old self?
I would tell my 21 year old self to give things time and space and to be kind to myself. Growth takes time and sometimes requires space from various people, places, and situations. Also, at 21 you don’t know everything, so be kind to yourself when you make a mistake and are growing.

What is your social media “guilty pleasure”?
My social media guilty pleasure is having and following food Instagram accounts. As a self proclaimed foodie, I follow various food accounts to get restaurant recommendations, recipes, and various cooking hacks. Eating and cooking good food is something that I do often, so why not see what people all over the world are eating and making and also share what I am eating and making.
If you weren’t in your current job, what would be your dream job?
Trying Mint Coffee for the first time in OH
A chef…In keeping with my food themed life, food has always been a way to bring people together. As a kid growing up in SW Louisiana meals were never a solo venture, there was always other family members, neighbors, or friends gathered around the table. Recipes were passed down through generations and tweaked as each generation made them their own, seeing the same dish made in various ways depending on who is making it, and being in the kitchen with my mom, aunts, or grandmothers will always be life molding memories for me. As a chef, I would have the opportunity to curate that same experience and bring people from all different walks of life together over an amazing plate of food.
