Where did you grow up?
I grew up in New Port Richey, FL. I was there for about 18 years until it was time to head to college. I attended University of Central Florida and graduated with my BA in hospitality.
Where was your first job?
Winn-Dixie, I started 2 weeks after my 14th birthday as a bagger. I worked there for 5 years until I graduated high school.
When did you start at Epicurean?
August 20th, 2016, three years this upcoming August!
What makes you hop out of bed every day?
My two fur-babies that I have! Neiman and Asher. They are Goberains (Golden Retriever mixed with Siberian Husky). They are like my kids! I want to be able to provide them a big house with a big back yard to play in everyday!
So, I’m planning a little celebration, and I’m looking for an interesting venue… any ideas?
YES. Plenty. Let’s talk!
