    “The faculty and staff at Monroe always made me feel like a person, not a number. The small class structure allowed me to work side by side with my chefs. The professors and people I met during my time at Monroe impacted my professional career tremendously. Overall, Monroe is a great place for anyone that wants a hand- on experience, with great professionals that give you the best opportunity to succeed in the industry today.”

    Why did you choose The Culinary Institute of New York?

    I chose CINY because of its proximity and accessibility to New York City. During my time there, I was privileged to be a part of the first CINY ACF State Culinary Team, which placed second. I won four hot food ACF medals, one ACF cold food medal, as well as a cold food medal from the cold food salon via the Societe Philanthropique at the International Hotel, Motel + Restaurant Show at the Jacob Javitis Center in Manhattan. Most recently, I competed for and won the Daniel Boulud Scholarship for a two month, all-expense-paid trip to Lyon, France to study at the Institut Paul Bocuse.
