Biz joined The Chopping Block as a Class Assistant in August 2016. Her passion for cooking didn’t really begin until her daughter turned 8, and she realized she’d never convince her daughter to eat veggies if she didn’t learn to cook and eat them herself! Fast forward and her daughter is now 24. She recently ditched her desk job of 20+ years to follow her true passion which is sharing her love of food and cooking. While not at work, she recipe develops, enters recipe contests and maintains a food blog at http://mybizzykitchen.com.
