Vegetarian since 2008. Food enthusiast since 2013.
I come from a family of amazing cooks, but I never had any great talent with food. Over the last several years, though, I grew more passionate about what we put into our bodies, and subsequently became more interested in how to prepare food.
I worked for Whole Foods from 2014 til 2016 in the Prep Foods department, which was a really incredible learning experience. I met a lot of amazing people there!
In early 2016, I moved on to be the Admin Assistant and social media gnome for a locally-sourced grocery in Memphis, and in April 2017, I became Assistant Store Manager! I loved my job, and what I did allowed me to work with some of the kindest and coolest people and product-makers in the Mid-South. Due to a change in the store’s focus, however, I was let go, which actually gave me the freedom to pursue my real passions: film and photography. Now, you can find me all over the place at events, tastings, and fundraisers of all kinds!
