About Purple’s Side of the Table, Charlotte, North Carolina
I started my private chef business in 2015 while I was running the culinary program at the Morrison YMCA, teaching at Sur la Table and Williams Sonoma located in Southpark. Instructing brought out a passion held so close to my heart. It was in that moment that I decided it was time to bring this passion into my clients’ homes.

I am originally from Boston, MA and earned my Degree in Culinary Arts from Newbury College in Brookline, Massachusetts. Upon graduating, I was offered a position at the distinguished Le Méridien Hotel in Boston in the hotel’s prestigious four-star “Julien” Restaurant.

I climbed the culinary ranks in Boston, and just 5 years out of school, I became the Executive Chef for Sodexho Food Service at Lasell College in Auburndale, MA.

In 2009, I moved to Charlotte and joined the Zoë’s Kitchen team to help them establish and grow their brand in the Charlotte Metro area, where I assisted with the opening of multiple locations. I transitioned into restaurant consulting in 2012, specializing in safe food handling procedures and their practical implementation. Now I bring all that expertise into your home.
