Biography
I grew up in southeast Indiana and my parents owned and operated a bakery. My dad has been a baker for over 40 years and still has the same bakery. I worked FOH at the bakery while in high school and summers during college. I still love to help with Christmas cookies and Ginger Bread House creations! His baked goods are the best!

My husband and I were owners of a steak house in Reno from 2001 to 2003. The restaurant was awesome and my famous salad was put on the menu. I don't really cook, but I bake and love to make salads with fresh, local ingredients. I am known for my salads and my cheesecake (my grandmother's recipe).

I currently live in Santa Clara with my husband Michael and I work for a telecommunications company in the corporate finance area. I am also a licensed real estate agent in Nevada.

I am a total foodie and Michael is a fabulous cook! We love to dine out and try new restaurants. I also enjoy wine, beer and a good cocktail from time to time.

Going Green

Posted on April 22, 2009 at 2:14pm 2 Comments

I love doing my part to combat global warming! Since its Earth Day, I feel compelled to write this blog to share with the FohBoh community and to reflect on what I have done in the past and what I am doing now to do my part to be green.



I grew up in a very organic environment, where fruits and veggies were grown in the backyard garden and "put up" for the winter so we would have our own produce year round. My favorites were Silverqueen Sweet Corn (we had half an acre dedicated to… Continue

All I want is a cup of tea

Posted on February 17, 2008 at 10:50am 1 Comment

Having expertise in your product is expected at a speciatly establishment. If you brag about how great your product is, then serve it with mediocre condiments, there is an immediate disconnect. Add poor customer service and you may never go back. Worse for the establishment, tell other about your experience...

Yesterday, I bypassed Starbucks in Santana Row for the tea place around the corner. A real tea house! I love tea and I was excited to finally try this place.

Well, my…

Butts in Seats

Posted on December 21, 2007 at 9:18pm 4 Comments

That's is a pretty old saying. I grew up in the bakery business and remember hearing my parents talking about "butts in seats, gotta have butts in those seats", whatever that meant. I know what it means now that I am always looking for new ways to bring in more people. Customer counts are pretty important and so is frequency.



Getting new and old customers in the door with growing competion is a challenge. Any ideas?







I found this group out of Mesa, Arizona. They are… Continue

Hi Doug. Its undecided if I am going to Chicago in May. I was going to come later in the week and we were going to go to the Indy 500. I think we have scratched those plans at this point. Michael will be there for sure. Stay tuned!

Cheers

I wish I was seeing them. I am saving up for CSN later in the summer. Who knows, I might see if I can get a ticket for the Portland, OR show. That would have been insane to see Rush and Foo Fighters! Will have to check that out on Youtube.

I love Rush! I saw them perform 2112 a few years ago during a normal concert. If there is a normal concert.

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.
