Micheline Dansin Service Award Winner 2015
Joined Team TASTE in: 1999
Hometown: Born in Fort Knox, KY but my heart lies in West Virginia, where my parents and grandparents are from.
Background: I have a BS in Food and Beverage Management. Before TASTE, I spent many years working in hotels. I was the Owner/Operator of Zappas in Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin.
About Me: I'm from an Army family and I have moved 33 times. I had my first 7 course meal in Strasbourg, France with my mother and her Womens Club when I was 10. I ordered trout which was served whole - including its head and eyes. Not very appetizing to a 10 year old. My mother traded her salmon for my trout.
