Get to know me better

Experienced and well-rounded professional chef focusing on healthy, bright and delicious food!

Born in Westchester County, NY, Kelly developed her passion for food by often cooking alongside her mother at home. Her excitement deepened while taking a nutrition course during her senior year of high school, which led her to study Dietetics at the University of Dayton. After completing her dietetic internship and becoming a Registered Dietitian, she then decided to attend culinary school at the Natural Gourmet Institute in NYC. This gave her the opportunity to learn about plant-based, health-supportive nutrition and wellness while advancing her culinary skills. After graduation, she completed an internship at Blue Hills at Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills, NY, and went on to work in well-known establishments including Restaurant North in Armonk, NY, and by CHLOE. in NYC and Silverlake, CA, where she developed a close relationship with Chef Chloe Coscarelli. In 2016, Kelly moved to Nashville, TN, and has been working for the Grilled Cheeserie company while occasionally working on projects with Coscarelli, including the popular NYC vegan pop-up “Supernatural.” She also formerly worked as a personal chef for Vibe Chefs and as a cook for Dream Events and Catering. Kelly is dedicated to a healthy lifestyle and is enthusiastic about sharing her culinary expertise with others.
