I completed and have sustained a healthy whole foods, plant-based lifestyle since the community Mercersburg, PA Engine 2 challenge held in 2010. As a plant-based cook, I earned a position as a finalist the last three years that Pennsylvania held their Vegetable Cook-Off competitions. For the past six years I have shared my experiences and knowledge as a health food coach and presenter for our local healthy eating adventures as well as coaching individuals to live a healthy lifestyle. I prepare my food and take my own food photos for social media.
I began my formal education as a physical education and health major. I received a BA from Franklin and Marshall College, Lancaster, PA and an MBA from Shippensburg University. To satisfy my creative artistic right brain, I earned my Diploma from London’s City and Guilds in Patchwork and Quilting. I continue to take courses and workshops to hone my photography skills.
As an entrepreneur I set up an e-commerce business Piecemaking LLC over 15 years ago. I work as a studio artist and have designed award winning contemporary quilts. Before becoming a studio artist, I taught college and worked in the corporate world as a multimedia developer. You can find me cooking in my kitchen or in the studio quilting or taking food photos or writing cooking books.
