In Haiti, she worked at a well know restaurant where she developed experience and interest for food, recipes and exotic Caribbean spices.

This blend automatically received a unanimous approval from family and friends.

Not only was I born in a kitchen, many women in my family have left a legacy in regards to entrepreneurship. I have always had great exposure to cooking—whether it be soups, dips, cocktails, ceviche’s, gratinées and so on. I love international seasonings and enjoy multicultural cuisine. On the other hand, I thrive on business challenges and love to practice my intergenerational marketing skills.
