My Story


After 16 years in the Medical Illustration/Animation industry,

I decided it was time for a change, so I quit my job and went to culinary school at 40. It's never too late. 


I was the Chef and Kitchen Manager for a fantastic little Cafe for five amazing years. Then it became time to work for myself and Leaf and Loaf was born. I created a children's program called

Fun with Food in 2015 and have educated, inspired and motivated children in the world of nutritious food exploration ever since.  


My days are full and filled with my excitement carrying out my mission, watching my teens flourish into responsible and fun members of our community, laughing uncontrollably with my husband and taking walks outside with my newly adopted senior rescue dog.
