Master Food Preserver, Cooking Instructor, and certified Nutritional Health Coach,  I am a passionate believer in the power of small changes to build a healthful life.

I have a college background in Education & was awarded the designation of Master Food Preserver through the Cornell University Extension Service based in Ithaca, New York. As a Culinary Instructor my goal is to be upbeat, informative, and take the mystery out of all methods of Preserving. We approach  the healthiest with a focus on making the best nutritional choices for you and your family.  My goal is to give you the confidence to prepare foods that are good- and good for you!

I recognize that culinary instruction and demonstration in the kitchen can enhance the total health experience and create a recipe for a success. We work individually or in a group to design practical culinary management, prepare delicious recipes, and have fun in the kitchen!
