culinary school in Pittsburgh, PA, where she graduated as Valedictorian and also met her fabulous husband, Joe Tuttle.  After living all over the United States and working as a pastry chef, she settled in Las Vegas, NV.  While living in Las Vegas, she was inspired by her husband, who is a "Real Character" and turned him into the cartoon character, Chef Joey.  She continues to eat the world, one dessert at a time!
