Cooking Is a life skill that everybody needs to know, no matter what your age is. Everybody needs to nourish their bodies and feed themselves, so I’m definitely passionate about bringing kids and families together in the kitchen. When you choose Sprouts, you’re obviously supporting a local business. You know I’m just a mom of three kids, who had dream of a business, and I went for it. When you send your kids here, you aren’t supporting some big business you’re supporting a local family. My kids always had loved cooking with me in the kitchen, I loved cooking, and so we were always cooking together. I looked all through the Internet trying to find cooking lessons for them one summer and I couldn’t find anything. And so it kind of just dawned on me that maybe I could start something like that myself. I had my degree in Elementary Education, I absolutely loved cooking and I just thought maybe this was something I could do. I think that as every mother’s children grow, they find themselves asking what that next chapter looks like in their life. And I wanted something for myself. I wanted to get back into the work place again. and so for me, I started small and I started with these little cooking camps in my home and it just kept building from there. I’m really proud of what I have been able to do. And I think it’s really cool that moms have that opportunity. Whatever you want to do as your kids have grown. You know to have that potential within yourself and you can build a company, you could go back to work in whatever way. And I’m happy that my family’s been so supportive, and my kids have, they’ve grown up, you know, working alongside me and it’s been exactly what I needed, for me, in my life. I do it for my customers, you know I love my students and I’m really passionate about my job. Everything that I talk about and advocate for, I believe in the mission that is my company, I believe every word of what I stand for. I love my job and it drives me every day.
