About Chef Mel

Originally an art school drop-out, I transferred to culinary school with no prior experience, but a love for eating and making people happy. Several years later, I feel as comfortable as ever on this path and love to connect with great people over delicious food.

Being a personal chef combines my love of art, food, and good vibes. Whether I'm feeding you and your family or teaching you how to cook your favorite dish, I strive to leave your kitchen with a memorable experience and delicious leftovers in the fridge.

I take pride in my work and my ability to stay cool and calm, even in high-stress situations. I refuse to live up to the stereotype that all chefs are loud and angry.

I graduated magna cum laude from Johnson & Wales University with an AS in Culinary Arts, and a BS in Food Service Management. I also completed the holistic Health Coach certification course with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I believe that food is medicine and plays a huge part in our overall wellness. 

I am ServSafe Food Protection Manager certified and take food safety very seriously.

Feel free to get in touch - whether you want to schedule a service or just chat about food, I'm here for you!
