After 17 years in the restaurant industry, I was committed to having a more personal impact on individuals lives. While working as a personal chef I found that many of my clients were in need of chef services to support their fitness goals. This began the Against the Grain dream and mission to help people live fitter lives while still ENJOYING what they ate. As a pre-med student, I am committed to not only helping people become fitter, but healthier also. My goal in my education is not specifically to work in the medical field, but to help people stay out of the doctors office as a result of a clean diet that supports hormone balance while decreasing lifestyle induced inflammatory conditions in the body.
