Melody later became a private chef in New York City, where she came to love and cherish the personal aspect of the job.
Recently, Melody relocated to the Pacific Northwest and is absolutely loving her new way of living alongside her husband and rescue dog, Zoey. She especially enjoys all the fresh produce that Washington has to offer and cooking many cuisines, but her mother’s roots always flourish in every meal.

Since graduating, Nora has established herself as a personal chef and caterer, worked in the kitchens of local restaurants, lead culinary tours around Europe and taught nutrition workshops through The Beecher’s Foundation.

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, Kelli's earliest experiences in the kitchen date back to before she can remember, baking cookies alongside her mother. Kelli laid down her culinary roots in Bellingham, where she graduated from Western Washington University. Her first cooking job was at a New York-style bagel cafe, which afforded her the opportunity to pursue her passion for baking and also provided an invaluable introduction to a myriad of culinary techniques.
Since her bagel days, Kelli has gone on to explore a number of culinary pursuits here in Seattle. Her most notable experience has been presiding as Chef at a boutique bar & eatery next to Seattle Center, where she enjoyed creating both seasonal menus and return customers for many years. Recently, Kelli has been enjoying a line cook position at an up-and-coming Paleo restaurant in Sunset Hill, honing her focus on healthy foods and quality local meats and vegetables. Cooking with local, seasonal, and responsibly sourced ingredients have always been at the heart of her culinary passions and remains at the forefront of the meals she brings to her clients' homes.
When she's not in the kitchen cooking for her clients or her family, Kelli enjoys time in the woods spent hiking and camping with her partner and their dog, Mr. Buds.
