About Chef!!!

Moving to Atlanta allowed me to realize how much I loved to serve people. Whenever my friends and family would come over the kitchen was my favorite place to be. I am a mother of one and a grandmother of two. I Love getting dress and experiencing fine dining, wine tastings and socializing with others. On my down time I love traveling and sitting poolside. After 25 years of being a successful hair stylist. My little leap of faith I call it, leaving Cleveland Ohio where I was born and raised was one of the best things that I could have done for myself and my career.

Cooking for my new Atlanta family ignited my passion for servicing people and led me to pursue new endeavors. After working under local chefs I decided to officially pursue my Career as a chef. In 2010 I enrolled at the Art Institute Of Atlanta. After 1 year I transferred to Atlanta Tech and graduate from there in 2012 with my Associates Degree in Culinary Arts.

I've seen Pretti Plates grow as I continue to Educate myself and dream bigger everyday. I'll be launching my first Eat Pretti cook book and adding author to my catalog. I can't wait to share my first project with all of you. In the meantime, I will keep developing signature dishes, keeping my clients happy and being grateful for how my little leap of faith turned into my greatest success.
