Pastry Chef de Partie
I am a native of North Carolina where I received an Associates Degree in Culinary Technology at Cape Fear Community College, Wilmington. I then furthered my education at Johnson and Wales University in Charlotte North Carolina, it was here that I received my Associates in Baking and Pastry Arts and graduated in the inaugural class in 2006. I have been in the hospitality industry for 16 years in which I have worked in various restaurants including a AAA five diamond restaurant, “Salt” The Grill at Ritz-Carlton.
As a part of my schooling I was required to do an internship which took place at The Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island. This was the beginning of my Ritz-Carlton career. I have had the opportunity to open The Ritz-Carlton Charlotte AAA five diamond property where I currently work as Pastry Chef de Partie. I am responsible for overseeing all Pastry operations which include Wedding Cakes, Showpieces, Pastry Cooking Classes and an All Dessert Concept called Bar Cocoa (which includes a 5’8″ tall Chocolate woman, Madam Cocoa). I appear on a monthly news segment on Channel 3 news and have had multiple Wedding cakes in Charlotte wedding magazine. I am also the winner of the 2011 Sugar Art Casting Challenge.
