Learn to Eat & Cook Healthy Meals on A Budget from My Kitchen in Aurora, Colorado.

Methodology

My teaching method is fun, practical, and transparent! I enjoy bringing humor to everything that I do, but especially when I teach. I have taught cooking classes in community settings with adults and families, in English and Spanish, and I also taught a hands-on, healthy eating class to high school students for 2 years. I love working with all people who want to learn more about themselves through how we take care of our bodies. Also, as humans, we retain information better when it a pleasant experience for us.

Background

I have been a personal chef for the past 2 years and I specialize in meal-prep style cooking. I have 9 years of experience in food justice/access and public health. Studying psychology in college has helped me understand our relationship with our environment and I took a particular interest in our relationship to food. Eating healthy can be affordable, fun and a great form of self-care.
