Laura has long been passionate about food. As a child, she cooked with her Grandma Kern and Grandmother Cotton - a variety of Central European foods and traditional American classics. Wanting to learn more about international cuisines and culinary techniques, she chartered a Gourmet Club in 1990 to share her hospitality and creations with friends. She spent years exploring new recipes, taking classes and refining her skills.
When a friend shared information about the personal chef service concept, she felt at home for the first time in her professional life. After cooking for family, friends and colleagues, many suggested she leave the health care industry - trade in her business suit for an apron - to pursue a career in the culinary arts. She believes the flexibility and creativity this field provides satisfies her soul without living the hectic schedule of a restaurant chef or caterer.
Laura completed the United States Personal Chef Association's (USPCA) training program and worked with others in the Baltimore region to form the USPCA’s Chesapeake Chapter in 2000 as the founding president. Additionally, she successfully completed the ServeSafe course, passed the exam and completed the requirements to become a Certified Personal Chef (CPC) a year later.
