I spent the past 26 years in the Air Force where I experienced firsthand the challenge of providing nutritious and delicious meals to my six children while working fulltime and managing a household. I was surrounded by other families struggling with this same problem, there simply wasn’t enough time in the day to consistently provide our families with the type of meals we desired to. I struggled with this balancing act for years and when I retired in 2013 I decided that I wanted to earn a living by helping people like myself who had the desire to create fantastic meals every day but simply did not have the time, energy or ability to do so. For this reason, I am pursuing a degree in Culinary Arts with the intent to start a home meal delivery business which will provide five course homemade meal selections throughout the week to people from all walks of life. I believe that this will allow me use my love of food and cooking to provide a worthwhile service to my community while providing for my family.
I have completed 43 of 70 semester hours of my Culinary Arts program while maintaining a 4.0 GPA and I look forward to my dream becoming a reality in the summer of 2015.
