Jamie started with a background in the marketing and advertising world. For over 10 years she helped many local businesses in Silicon Valley succeed in their dreams. She also saw many fail.
After a few major car accidents she realized life is too short and she couldn’t go back into a career that didn’t make her feel at her best. So she decided to follow her passion for cooking and baking that started at a young age.
Her father was a chef, and her grandma and nonna were amazing bakers. These were the role models in her life. So she decided in her pursuit of happiness to follow her dreams, went to culinary school and graduated in January 2013, delivering the speech at the ceremony in honor of her grandmother. Her inspiration and her BIGGEST fan had passed in October from cancer. She knew that whatever she did going forward it would be in part to help people achieve a healthier lifestyle through food. After all Food in part is what makes our bodies sick and/or heals us.
While in school she worked with the catering department and got a taste of what it was like to serve in the industry. She also worked at a sushi restaurant and set her goal to be a sushi chef. Which she did! Working her way up the latter she made it behind the Sushi bar rolling up glorious edible art. She then moved on to help open a few restaurants and then decided it was her turn.
“It’s not about the flashy names of chefs or restaurants, it’s about the passion behind the creator. I don’t need a fancy named school or a big named chef on my resume to do what I love. It’s my turn to make my dream come true. No one ever said it would be easy, That would take the fun out of it!
