She hates the Dallas Cowboys but roots for most underdogs in all other situations. She was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, but lived in Dallas, Texas for eight years before she came to Chicago. She found the love of her life here and she spends most nights cooking him old family favorites and new recipes she has either read about or picked up from her fellow culinary family at The Chopping Block. She currently works as an HR Generalist for SGA Youth and Family Services, which is a non-profit working hard to empower youth and enable Chicago children, families and communities who face great challenges with few resources to see their potential and discover new paths to success.
