“I love feeling like I'm hosting a party and entertaining guests each day.”
First job ever: Shelving books at my local library in Crystal Lake, IL.
Here’s what I love about my job: Every day is different! I love feeling like I'm hosting a party and entertaining guests each day.
After a busy shift, I really like to: Take my dog for a long walk along the Chicago River.
Favorite "guilty pleasure" food: Nam khao tod -- a spicy, crispy rice salad from Rainbow Thai.
If you want a restaurant career, my advice is: Love what you do! Be flexible and open to learning, no matter what your level of experience.
