I am married to my outrageous and funny husband, Mark, and the mommy of two wonderful children, Paige and Sean. For many years I worked in the food industry, and was the sous chef for Palomino Euro Bistro and later Kincaid’s. With the birth of my first child, Paige, I became a full time stay at home mom. When Paige started preschool, I began making fun bentos for her home lunches. Bentos were not only fun for her but served as a great creative outlet for me. In 2008 I wrote Hawai`i’s Bento Box Cookbook, Fun Lunches for Kids and in April 2010 came out with my second book, Hawai`i’s Bento Box Cookbook, 2nd Course.
