Chef Sandra Bio
Chef Sandra Lewis had invested 20+ years in a corporate career when in 2009 she faced a “now or never” moment. Choosing the now, she sold her house put everything in storage and enrolled in culinary school.
Her experience as a single mom throughout her career taught her the value of cooking and gathering nightly around the table to feed the body, soul, and spirit.
Today she combines her experience as a working mom with her culinary expertise to educate, inspire, and motivate people to answer the most important, pressing question they face everyday, “What’s for dinner?”. Because the kitchen is the the gateway to a healthy, happy, productive workforce, family, and communities.
She also shares the recipe for living a meaningful life at home and at work that satisfies more than a fatter paycheck ever could – cooking and sharing time at the table with family and friends.
Sandra earned her BS in Mass Communications, Magna Cum Laude, from the University of Utah, and earned an AAS with honors in Culinary Arts from Le Cordon Bleu, Dallas.
She is a member of the National Speakers Association, serves on the Board of the Council For Healthy Food Systems, and is Food Editor for Suburban Style Magazine.
