Here is a short bio of this Month workshop instructors.
Since I started working in my grandmother's restaurant at age 13, I developed a passion for preparing good food. In 2011 after watching Forks over Knives and Frankensteer I realized that the food in my life could be much more than just a food. At that time I made the decision to become a mostly Vegan and always vegetarian.
I am an educator. My motto is "use food as medicine". I have a passion for health! I have been vegan for 2 1/2 years, prior to that I was vegetarian for 10 years. I feel that knowledge Is a great gift to pass on to others! I love learning, and teaching others. Making the kombucha is a great way to add non dairy probiotics to your life.
I am a Grand Rapids Veg Meetup organizer and a wellness coach to help people tansition their diet to a plant based diet. One of my passions is to publish "Vegan Asian Cook Book" and vegan kimchi is absolutely one of my top recipes.
