The year is starting strong with another amazing woman joining the ranks as a boss! Megan is our newest Sous Chef and it's time to introduce her properly...
Q: Where are you from?
A: Born and raised in Southern California and until about two years ago I lived in San Diego. I came to the Bay Area because my brother has lived here for the last ten years and has been twisting my arm the entire time to move up.
Q: What did you want to be when you were 12 years old?
A: I wish I could say cooking but I remember wanting to be a marine biologist or train horses. I was heavy into horses and couldn't imagine living without them, but what 12 year old girl isn't? I also remember baking pumpkin pies with my Mom when I was 5, standing on a step stool with a wooden spoon and bowl. I know that experience had a large influence on me, perhaps more than I knew at the time.
Q: What's your favorite animal or spirit animal?
A: I'd be lying if I said I didn't have a soft spot in my heart for horses but dogs may take number one. I don't go too ga-ga for babies but if I see a dog, my inner dialogue immediately changes to something along the lines of baby talk.
Q: Destination on your bucket list?
A: As of right now the next place I want to visit is Europe- France in particular. But true bucket list destination? I would have to say Thailand. White sandy beaches, coconut soup and crystal clear water sounds dreamy.
Q: What is your greatest or biggest Fear?
A: Being the hopeless romantic that I am, I would say never finding 'the one'.
Q: Any goals or lessons that stick out from Waterbar?
A: I learn something every single day form Waterbar- I've never worked somewhere where that's the case, it's amazing. I love it. The biggest lesson that I've learned and one thing I still have to work on is understanding. It takes so many people so much time and effort to make the wheels turn, understanding is vital. I few of my mentors have so much patience and understanding, I couldn't be in a better position to learn and grow to be a stronger leader.
That's a wrap!!!! Megan, you're the best!
