Are you a chef striving to create a better life?
Are you longing to make people happy with the food you cook?

Nice to meet you!

Because when it comes to turning chefs into successful business owners

– I’m the real deal.

I set up my private chef business in 1997.

Disclaimer: I don’t cook. I started my business after I married a chef whose income couldn’t support our family. I still operate that business today, with dozens of culinary pros who serve over a thousand clients in homes in the greater Lake Tahoe area of California and Nevada.

My specialty is the behind-the-scenes art of running and growing a private chef business.

I can short cut the process and reduce the learning curve FOR YOU! My ultra-informative videos, emails, and online courses empower and teach countless chefs how to turn their passion for cooking into a real paycheck.


Setbacks and my backstory didn’t stop me

We’ve all been ill-taught and wounded. My history includes living through my parents’ multiple broken marriages, years of molestation, and overcoming drug and alcohol addiction. I’ve had and lost money, and stood on the brink of divorce and bankruptcy.

You and I aren’t really that different.

I’ve been angry, overworked and exhausted from working to prove my worth. And I’ve come through the other side a clean, sober and thriving business owner. Today, I create from my VISION rather than my CIRCUMSTANCES.


I’m dedicated to elevating the lives and careers of chefs through business ownership.

Life shouldn’t just be a grind. It’s possible to be hard-working and build a profitable business based on your love of serving others. And it’s never too late to follow your heart and align your talent with your passion.


Life is full off the clock.

I’m married to chef Grog and our two kids are my greatest accomplishment. I like paddling on Lake Tahoe, stand-up comedy, roller coasters, fast motorcycles, large crowds and live music (oh, and I love the word ‘plethora’).
