Healthy Cooking 

My Story & Health and Heritage

I am born and raised in Chicago,IL. I have had a passion for food since the age of 13 and have ever since found myself surrounded by food.

I have a Bachelor of Liberal Arts & Sciences in Anthropology and Integrative Biology and a Masters of Liberal Arts in Gastronomy Science.

Fast forward, in grad school I found a passion for food policy and food justice. Out of that passion, came Health and Heritage. 

Health and Heritage is a lifestyle that has health, social-cultural and environmental solutions for people of color communities as part of its mission. Health and Heritage's focus is improving health and reducing chronic health disease in people of color communities by providing a space to cultivate knowledge, skills, and opportunity.
