Entering my kitchen is a journey to the table of my husband's Mexican abuelita (grandmother), to the sun kissed sour cherry trees of our family orchard, and to the community bakery where I learned how to make my first scone. For me, food is heart, mind, body, tongue, community, and earth.
As a 15 year old I was already immersed in the world of food: working in the kitchen at a French restaurant and toiling in the soil in my neighbor's garden. Growing up in inner-city Oakland, California, the role of food in health equity was in glaring focus for me.
As an Registered Dietitian, I have thrown myself into the study of sustainable food systems and public health nutrition. Among other adventures, I have pursued a Master's degree, studied food security in Bolivia, and worked with hundreds of students to advance BC's food system sustainability.
