I am the Cook here at Loleta Elementary School. I have worked in school kitchens for many years. I began cooking breakfast and lunch for students and staff at Loleta School in December of 2011. My duties extend beyond cooking. I am responsible for the menu planning as well as the ordering, receiving, and storing of the food and kitchen supplies. There are a lot of behind the scenes paperwork such as keeping up on the United States Department of Agriculture, California Department of Education Nutrition, and Humboldt County Department of Health and Safety regulations and requirements involved with managing a school kitchen.
I grew up on the east coast. After enlisting in the military, I ended up on the west coast where I have since resided. My husband and I have three children who are the joy of our lives. My favorite hobbies are reading, gardening, and, of course, cooking.
It is enjoyable to see all the shining, expectant faces of our students as they journey through our breakfast and lunch buffet line.
