She has been chef of Savoir Faire and the Bistro at Maison deVille. In June of 2000, she opened Wildflour Breads, a wholesale artisan bakery, with partner Sandy Whann of Leidenheimer Baking Company. She was a founding partner and chef of Herbsaint Restaurant, with former Bayona sous chef, Donald Link, and for the last 20 years, has been chef and co-owner with Regina Keever of Bayona, in the French Quarter. In June of 2010, she embarked on a new adventure as owner and chef of Mondo in the Lakeview neighborhood of New Orleans, where she resides with her husband and stepchildren.

Mondo is the restaurant I've been wanting to open for years — a comfortable, neighborhood place with friendly, professional service, a variety of great food and unique but moderately priced wines, beers and spirits. We'll always bring you the best of our local harvest and reach across the globe for authentic ingredients in our quest to make simple, delicious food that's accessible no matter what neighborhood you're from.
