Where have you been? and what
have you been doing? - - - family, school, career, pastimes, good
I went from Columbus to
Madison, WI to Milwaukee, WI to Chicago, IL; married, divorced and
I started out as a speech and hearing pathologist in the Wisconsin
school system and then went on to follow my interest in cooking. I
studied with the wonderful Madeleine Kamman in Annecy, France and
then was lucky enough to work with her protege in Milwaukee until I
moved to Chicago. Once in Chicago, I worked freelance in food styling
and for Eli's Cheesecakes.
I'm still here in Chicago, phasing out of food styling to full
My passion now is focused on the creation of mosaics.
I'm sure I'm not the only one
out there, but after getting divorced, moving to Chicago, having no
money and no job, I managed to find a job, then a career and then
re-marry happily. I feel very fortunate and proud to be able to stand
on my own.
