Katherine is a culinary school graduate from the Chef School at George Brown College. She is now advancing her career in the hospitality industry upgrading her education to include a business degree from GBC's School of Hospitality and Tourism Management.
During Katherine's earlier studies she received academic distinction in the field of Culinary Nutrition. Her favourite experience in culinary school was a year long course that focussed on innovation in the industry. This included a two-stage structured environment for students to develop new culinary products. An additional requirement was an advanced understanding of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency's Acts and Regulations to verify nutritional claims and requirements for product development, labels and packaging.
Katherine supports research and data collection for food tourism strategies.
