I've been working at Bod Hyfryd since October 2008. I started as a part-time Kitchen Assistant while studying Business Studies at the University of Chester. After I graduated, I realised that office work wasn't really for me and that I preferred working in the kitchen and the home.
I moved up to the position of Second Chef and, after a few years, was promoted to Head Chef. All my training has been in-house and I have learned a lot on the job. I obtained an NVQ Level 3 in Hospitality, Management and Leadership whilst working full time in 2017. It was challenging, but also very interesting and beneficial to me in my role.
The best part of my job is seeing residents enjoying their food at mealtimes and gaining their feedback. I love to bake and like to try out new ideas for cakes and pastries.
