Thumbtack Spotlight

The Conscious Caterer

(2 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I love my "job" because I am able to create amazing meals for amazing people. I source the best seasonal ingredients from local and organic farms in California that ensure the best quality menu. I love learning about my client’s intention and infusing that into the food I prepare, cook, and serve. I love having the freedom to create new and exciting meals from scratch for different people with different expectations. I love to mingle with farmers, foodies, and locals about the best items at the markets and new ways to use them.

Who or what inspired you to start your business?

The love of my life really inspired me to come from a place of love instead of fear. This meant that I needed to do a "job" that I loved instead of one that provided me a comfortable paycheck. I was inspired by the overwhelming response I received from those who tasted my food and my friends and family encouraging me to do what I love. It was a leap of faith that has so far paid off and will continue to do so since I am so happy while I am doing it.
