What is your favorite place to find new recipes?

I love flipping through cookbooks for ideas and inspiration! Some of my favourite cookbooks that I open at least weekly include the Run Fast Eat Slow, Run Fast Cook Fast Eat Slow, and Rise and Run series. The Oh She Glows cookbooks are also a go-to for me! 

What is your favorite way to unwind?

I enjoy taking my dog for a walk as a way to unwind towards the end of the day. If it is spring/summer you will also find me in the garden! 

What do you love most about your job?

I love working with the residents.  I really enjoy getting to know my residents and helping them reach identified nutrition goals. Long-term care is a special and rewarding environment to work in.
