Industry Experience– I started working in Kitchens at the age of 15 alongside school which made me want to train to be a Chef which I went on to complete a 2 year course in once I finished school. I worked as a chef for 15 years in a variety of establishments from busy Hotels to Gastro Pubs and Fine Dining Restaurants. I spent my last 5 years as a chef for a large contract catering company working my way up from a CDP to a Chef manager running my own unit.
After 15 years I decided to hang up my whites and joined the Back-2-Front team which I have been part of for 6 years now.

Greatest Achievement– Other than having my 2 kids I would have to say that my greatest career achievement was at the age of 23 I was offered a Head Chef role at a well known busy Bristol Restaurant it was an honour to have all my hard work recognised even though I did refuse the position due to having career doubts at the time.
