Why do you want to become an ACF Certified Master Chef®?
I desire to take my knowledge from my journey and be impactful as a motivation for future generations.
What are the reasons you chose to pursue ACF certification in your career?
The ACF was the only organization that showed me that there was a community and network opportunity with individuals who were passionate about our same career.
When is it the right time in a chef’s career to take the ACF Certified Master Chef exam?
I am not sure if there is a right time as much as there is a need to discipline yourself and hold yourself accountable for pursuing excellence without wavering.
Where do you see yourself professionally in 10 years?
I see myself still cooking strong everyday and sharing with all who desire to be a student, as I have been my whole career.
How do you prepare both mentally and physically for the exam?
I have prepared myself by creating a routine that no one is allowed to change, and staying committed to a new lifestyle of pushing myself, even in uncomfortable moments.
