Q: What is your culinary training background and how did that lead you to the Lake Geneva area?

I grew up in the surrounding area of Lake Geneva and I studied culinary arts at the Illinois Institute of Art - Chicago.


Q: Who has been your biggest culinary inspiration and why?

My grandma was a big inspiration for me to start culinary school. Growing up watching her make delicious meals and sweet treats for family gatherings. See how much love she put I to everything.


Q: What is your restaurant best known for?

Healing Grounds is best known for our fresh pressed juices, smoothies, and our healthier sweet treats such as the Monster Cookie and Avocado Pudding.


Q: What is your favorite dish to cook and why?

My favorite thing to do in the cafe is definitely juicing. It’s so rewarding knowing that people come in for the juices and can see results in their own health journey.


Q: Do you have any tips or tricks for those looking to elevate their dishes at home?

I love adding in nutrient dense ingredients into things and it’s a lot easier than you think. Adding in hemp hearts, chia seeds, goji berries, and nuts into your daily routine.
