What are you most passionate about?

My biggest passion is helping operators find the right solution for their needs.

What is a piece of advice or insight you want to share with operators?

It's important that operators stay connected with their customers to keep up with dining trends and dietary preferences. Customers like to know that an operator is listening to their needs and creating flavorful dishes to reflect those concerns.

What is your favorite Land O Lakes® product and why?

Even though it’s a relatively new product, Extra Melt® Monterey Jack Cheese Sauce is a favorite. It’s got a great cheese flavor, so it stands on its own; but when you use it as a base for your dairy sauce recipes, it handles almost anything you can throw at it.
