• What do you do for J. Selby's? I started as a line cook and then helped get the expo position in place. I have done a bit of everything at the restaurant. I am switching over to manage our food truck, The J-Mobile, and I couldn't be more excited!
  • What's your favorite J. Selby's menu item? I don't have a favorite! I love so many things depending on the day. The wings and burgers are on my list for sure. And the falafel burger un-bun is wonderful.
  • What's your favorite thing to do in the Cities? My life revolves around food, so my favorite thing to do is go out to eat and try new things. It's a challenge finding good plant based eats, but I am always up for the challenge!
  • What's your favorite animal? Jackalopes. And squirrels.
  • Your favorite binge-worthy TV show? Cheers is a classic, but any old tv show will do. I love Lucy, Golden Girls, and whatever grandma is watching. 
  • What is something you're passionate about? Why? Teaching people why plant based eating is the way to go, without being preachy. No one likes to be told what to do or that they are wrong. So finding a way to relay info about healthy, sustainable, and friendly eating in a way that interests people is great. 
  • What made you decide to follow the diet/lifestyle? I was on a road trip and stopped at a truck stop. There was a truck of cattle on the way to slaughter and it broke me. I probably cried for the rest of whatever state I was in. 
  • What is one piece of advice you'd offer to someone hoping to become vegan or eat plant-based? The best advice I can give is to really look into your choices. Know what you are supporting and why. If you care about the animals, your own health, or the health of the whole planet and all of her inhabitants, then research why a plant based lifestyle is good for that cause. When you have a solid reason to stick with something, it makes it so much easier when temptation comes along. And also, just remember that you are not perfect. We all make mistakes and slip up. But trying and doing your best is amazing and all that anyone can ask of you.
