Chef Jennifer brings an extensive background and education
to Chef at Heart.
Starting out as a registered nurse, Jennifer returned to school to study business and after many years as an administrative professional, she decided it was time to professionally pursue her passion for food. Chef Jennifer attended culinary school and graduated from Liaison College with an honours diploma in both the Cook and Personal Chef programs, and then achieved the recognition of Certified Personal Chef after passing the personal chef exam through the Culinary Business Academy.
After graduating and launching Chef at Heart, Jennifer spent time working as a member of the banquet staff at a local resort in Hockley Valley, and almost two years as a cook at a local bistro named one of the top best buys in the Where to Eat in Canada Guide, Canada's National Restaurant Guide.
Chef Jennifer has been a member of the United States Personal Chef Association for more than five years, and believes in continued learning. She has attended courses at Le Cordon Bleu in Ottawa, studied nutrition and wellness at Georgian College, and even learned competitive BBQ techniques with world BBQ champions, Mike and Debbie Davis from Lotta Bull BBQ in the U.S. Chef Jennifer also holds a current Food Safety Training Certificate from the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit, Barrie, Ontario.
Our chef is now excited to put her passion and expertise to work for you.
