My education was initially in journalism, but then I went on to (accidentally) create a portfolio career around food.
It started when I landed an internship on a cooking show for Food Network Canada back in 2018. In just four months, I learned how to input a recipe on a website, how to plan, shop for, and make snacks for a crew, and I picked up some cooking skills as well!
(Fun fact: I had never used a pair of tongs before that job. Never!)
Since then I've worked at several different jobs that involved meal planning, grocery shopping on a budget, and cooking for both people and media shoots.
I also worked in a garden center for three summers, where I had received training on garden and lawn care. I've always enjoyed puttering around in the garden, but working there gave me a new appreciation for what you can grow in a small space.
I hope you'll find some inspiration and information here that will work for you. If you ever need to reach me, just send me an email and I'll do my best to respond as soon as I can.
I have an Honours Bachelor Degree in Media Studies, and a diploma in Journalism, from the University of Guelph-Humber.
I also completed the Culinary Arts Certificate Program at George Brown College in 2021.
Additionally, I received nursery certification training at my previous garden centre job.
