Cooking has been a love of mine as far back as I can remember, starting with my Easy Bake Oven. From an early age I was making cakes and ... popcorn. Yes, I mastered the Easy Bake Popcorn (there was a lot of tin foil and yes some burned kernels invovled).
Around the age of 7, Saturday morning fun meant serving breakfast in bed to my parents. Cooking was a family affair growing up. I have fond memories of helping in the kitchen with my mom and grandmother, learning secret family recipes. My parents always said, "figure out your passion and find a way to make a living at it." So, here I am!
As I grew older, I moved on from the Easy Bake Oven, but continued to hone my skills cooking for family and friends. Eventually, I enrolled in The Art Institute - Seattle, Culinary Arts School.
After graduation, I launched Kitchen Door. Originally, I focused solely on personal chef clients; however, as my business grew, I contemplated, "How can I get more of my delicious cuisine into peoples' homes?" Then the thought came to me... meal delivery.
I know people come home from work tired, stressed, and just wanting something delicious and healthy to eat, but do not having the time or energy to prepare it. I knew I could help these individuals by providing nourishing and mouth-watering meals they could simply heat and enjoy. What could be easier, or more delicious?
The dinner hour is an endangered species. I know hectic schedules, nonstop email, and texting are cutting into precious family time. Stop eating on the run. Sit down to a wholesome, home-delivered meal together. Reconnect, laugh, and yes, eat! Dinner's ready when you are.
The Kitchen Door team of culinary experts is ready to create delicious meals for you. You won't be disappointed.

On a personal note, I enjoy the outdoors and everything the Pacific Northwest has to offer; skiing, hiking, boating, and spending time with my husband John, son Charlie and family and friends. I am involved in various philanthropic endeavors. I volunteer time with my local Pi Beta Phi Alumnae Club and I am a proud WSU alumna.
