"I chose to pursue a career in cooking because of my interest in food and the restaurant industry. Since starting my program at SAIT in 2014 my passion for cooking has only grown. I hope to travel the world to experience new cultures and learn to cook different types of dishes from my travels."

  • A few of the chefs at my school recommended I get involved in Skills Competitions and so I did as it seemed like a great way to further develop my skill set in this field.
  • Interesting fact about Victoria : before I got involved in cooking, I was a competitive equestrian. I really enjoy the excitement and thrill of show jumping and it is still a big part of my life.
  • I feel that working with others is a very valuable Essential Skill for my training. Working with others allows me to come up with new ideas and enhances my creativity.
