My name is Kristen and I have a genuine love for all things food and nutrition. It brings me joy to see smiling faces enjoying my meals, hear sighs of relief coinciding with fridge doors opening and eyes gazing upon neat and tidy packages of food.
I’ve had the pleasure of being a personal chef for over five years now, and have served an array of clients: professional athletes, busy working professionals, retired couples, driven entrepreneurs and sweet families with schedules packed full of soccer games and ballet practices. I know many people who just barely survive in the kitchen. Allow me to help you thrive, whether that includes freeing up your time and energy or teaching you a thing or two.
Professional & Educational Background:
I graduated with honors from Johnson & Wales University in sunny Denver, CO with a dual degree in Culinary Arts and Culinary Nutrition. I also studied at AtSunrice Culinary Institute in Singapore as well as a cooking school in Chiang Mai, Thailand. I have had a 21-Day Sugar Detox Certification through Diane SanFilippo and specialize in all facets of balanced and nourishing living.
I’ve been working with food for over 14 years and have had my own business for nearly four. I spent four years cooking in families’, couples’, and individuals’ homes as well as a year focusing on Paleo meal delivery throughout the greater Denver area. I will continually provide you with tasty, unique, and healthy food that doesn’t taste like the image that just came to mind when you read the words ‘healthy food’.
I moved to Charleston, SC in June of 2015 and have been soaking up the rich history and depth of influence that is ingrained in the culinary scene here. When I’m not crafting delicious recipes, I enjoy spending hours in coffee shops, dog watching on Second Sunday, writing, running, and exploring the beauty of this historic city I now call home.
So here it is:
