Before I began my culinary adventure, I was happily running many offices throughout my younger adulthood. I left said jobs to pursue a lifelong passion, and accomplished that. I am now looking to go back to my roots and continue being a receptionist again. I loved helping and just being a pleasant person to those in need. I would love to be that person for you.
