Personal Experience

Kaitlyn attended Western Michigan University, then Oakland University in Rochester Hills for a liberal arts degree.  She has been working in restaurants for over 13 years, and on the side as a dog trainer for three years.  In her words, she has two amazing parents, an older brother and sister, a niece and nephew, and is a “dog mom” to a chocolate lab named Brew.  She loves to hike, kayak, fish, hunt, draw and paint.  Kaitlyn has always had a passion for food and cooking. When she began living on her own, she started creating her own recipes.  This is when she realized “this could be an awesome career that wouldn’t seem like a job”. She loves LCCS because of the small class and hands-on approach and interacting with the chef, learning something new every day.  After graduation, she would like to start her own catering business or work as a private chef, and maybe eventually own a restaurant or food truck.
