Summer Internship: I spent the summer as an apprentice under Brandon Gries at the Belmont Bistro in Waterloo.
Top Achievement: It has to be embracing change and growth to pack up all my belongings and moving out of Thunder Bay to attend the Stratford Chefs School.
Favorite Food: That is a tough one! I have fond memories of my grandmother making fresh spanakopita and devouring it as a child. I also have a terrible sweet tooth.
