No, I’m not a great cook. Sure, my family willingly eats what I prepare, but nobody would ever pay for it. So why a restaurant? I guess you could call me an entrepreneur. Sometimes that’s what I put on applications. What I really enjoy is working with smart, talented, and passionate people to build something great. And it’s been a good formula for me. I grew up in LA, the daughter of an accountant, and went to college at SDSU. I started as a high school Math teacher in Bonita but spent most of my career as a software engineer in San Diego’s telecommunications industry. I’ve been on the founding team of two successful hi-tech startup companies. I’ve built, run, and sold for a profit a horse boarding and training facility in Olivenhain. And all these ventures were good times with close friends. So why a restaurant? Today I see another opportunity to create something great and this time with my very talented and inspired friend, Claire Allison. I know the food will be terrific because Claire loves to cook for her friends all the time. And the environment is warm and welcoming, just like it is at Claire’s home.
