Meet our Personal Chefs
Personal Chef and Caterer
As a self taught chef, I have been cooking for over 30 years and am a very adaptable in the kitchen. I usually spend my free time practicing recipes and trying to make everyday feel like vacation - so naturally, what's not to love about being a part of the Food by Bel team?!! I get to work every day with my biggest passion in life.. PIZZA....well, not just pizza, but FOOD... I get to create connections, unite families, give back to the world and show love!
Veggies are my favorite! I love to eat vegetables and I really love to cook with them. My mission is to make healthy, wholesome, flavorful, vegetable-loaded food that tastes incredible. I have lots of experience cooking low carb and vegetarian/vegan. My flavor inspiration comes from home cooks all around the world. I love working at Food by Bel because I get to be creative with food every day and show how yummy healthy can be!
My style of cooking has been largely influenced by a combined background of Hispanic and Amish home cooking and a passion for healthy food. I've worked in bakeries, restaurants, food trucks, etc. but I love being a personal chef because I believe that there is nothing more PERSONAL and fulfilling than creating exciting meals for health-conscious people! Thrilled to be working for a company like Food by Bel where I can help people live a more balanced, healthy, and flavorful lifestyle!
Originally inspired by cooking shows on PBS and The Food Network I first developed my interest in cooking as a teenager. As such, one of my earliest jobs was cooking in a local Italian restaurant. As I grew older I became more and more interested in health, and what better way to a healthy lifestyle than to eat good food! This interest lead me to the world of organic farming and sustainability which broadened my knowledge of local produce and practices tenfold. I specialize in from-scratch cooking with an emphasis on whole foods.
I continue my appreciation for food and its benefits to this day as a personal chef. As we get busier it’s harder to find time to make nutritious meals that taste good and are nutritious. Let me cook your next favorite meal! Whether it’s pizza or wings, steak and salad, kombucha and hummus, I love to cook it all!
In my free time I enjoy getting outdoors climbing, hiking, cycling, paddling, or being on some kind of adventure.
