Bio: I have always been inspired by the way food is woven between community and culture. It was a blessing to grow up in a multicultural family with a mom and dad who passionately taught me recipes passed down by their parents, who immigrated to the East Coast from Syria, Poland, and Sicily.

In 2013 I went to the Southwest province of Yunnan, China through the Fulbright Scholar program to research how Traditional Chinese Medicine was utilized by everyday people through daily food practices as part of vibrant, historically rich food culture. When I returned to Denver I began working with the immigrant and refugee communities and was impressed by the tenacity that people demonstrated Local Chapter News WWW.BPWCOLORADO.ORG January 2021 Newsletter Issue #60 WWW.BPWCOLORADO.ORG 5 January 2021 Newsletter Issue #60 Local News continued to keep food traditions alive despite incredible obstacles. In 2018 I started Food Bridge, a nonprofit with a mission to provide a platform where multicultural perspectives on food, health, and culture are included and celebrated in a dialogue that explores innovative approaches towards increasing wellness in underserved communities!
