I am a NY native transplanted in Nashville, TN. I currently hold the position of Executive Pastry Chef at The Joseph Hotel, Luxury Collection.
I am graduate of the Culinary Institute of America where I hold a bachelors degree in Baking and Pastry Management as well as other awards and accolades.
I am a proud Valrhona Cercle V Member and love all things pastry.
In my free time I love to be in the kitchen at home, hike the great outdoors, travel, and spend quality time with my husband Daniel, friends, and dog Hoover.
People understand dessert is a lot more than just a slice of cake. The perception has moved from simple to something that can be more elaborate. Pastry was a dying art for so long — seeing it come back up and be more appreciated is really amazing. Especially in Nashville right now, there’s an amazing pastry scene.
