Since completing NIC’s Professional Cook 1 program, I have worked as a camp cook at Sechart Kayaking Lodge and travelled with Lime’n Food Truck to share my culinary skills at various events such as Salmon Fest, Sunset Market, Ukee Days and more. I’m currently working at NIC’s Roger Street Bistro. It feels like coming home.
