Teaching & Wellness Programs

Wellness Programs & Team Building

I work with businesses and public agencies and their employees to make healthy, delicious, home-cooked food a regular part of life. Simple tricks and a bit of confidence can turn into new habits that get you hooked on fresh, seasonal produce and the joy of cooking it. If your workplace has such a program and is interested in cooking classes, demonstrations or presentations please get in touch. I presently teach in Legacy Health Systems’ Live It! weight management program as well as Clackamas County’s Wellness Program.

Do you need a fun, educational team building activity for your employees? Cooking and eating together and learning new skills, to boot, can be an inspiring part of annual planning retreats or as a thank-you to hard-working staff.

Non-profits & Community Partners

I work with a wide variety of organizations, teaching customized classes, developing recipes and curricula and doing presentations around simple everyday meals. Partners and clients currently include Head StartPortland Farmers Market, Terwilliger Plaza, and Growing Gardens.

Private Classes
I also teach private classes, either in your home or mine. If you have a group of friends/family/colleagues who would like to do a class together (with a special menu or one of my choosing) we can schedule something to fit your needs. Have a group of friends or family with whom you’d like to take a private class?


Overwhelmed at the end of the day by what to make for dinner or how much restaurant meals or prepared foods are costing you? I offer customized meal planning that helps you cook at home regularly with plenty of food for lunches or the freezer, reduces your food budget, and gets more fresh vegetables on your plate.

Need help stocking your pantry/kitchen? I can  help you get set up and systematize your restocking, list-making, and sourcing/shopping.
