What do you love most about Oliverian?

What I like most was the ease of transition into the job here at Oliverian; the atmosphere, staff, and students were immediately welcoming and accepting.

What motivates you to work with kids?

I love working with students and educating them about food, healthy living styles, and making good food choices. It can be a challenge, but it is certainly worth it when you can introduce students to a whole new world of culinary cuisine!
