In 1992, I moved from Webster, SD to Sioux Falls, SD to study at Augustana College. To pay my way through college, my part-time job had me prepping food, hauling tables and chairs, and serving parties. In 2001, I stumbled upon an ad for a home study cooking course. I coupled that with endless hours of watching cooking TV, and I took a leap of faith and opened my own catering company.
