Chef Life Culinary Career Coaching

The Process

We’ll use the three-step Chef Life Value Proposition Framework to identify, connect to, and affirm what’s right for you, and your career trajectory.

Then we'll uncover what might be holding you back from achieving those goals and co-create a process, and practice that will serve you, and your loved ones long into the future.

About You

My clients are chefs and hospitality professionals who no longer want to sacrifice their lives for the sake of their careers.

Individuals that are either ready for their next big career move or are transitioning out of the field and want to harness their skills to land the perfect job and a great life.

About Me

I’ve been a professional chef for over thirty years, and I’ve coached and mentored thousands of culinary professionals, just like you.

Now I leverage everything I’ve learned to assist other chefs to enjoy lives of purpose and meaning.

I look forward to supporting you in creating a career you can enjoy and be proud of.
