Tell me about yourself.
I'm a military spouse married to my high school sweetheart. I have 4 beautiful children. 

What made you decide to audition for MasterChef?
My sister Rheanna made me audition. 

What was the experience like? 
The experience was great, hard but worth it! I learned so many new things! Who new the girl from the south side of Chicago could make beautiful cannoli treats?! 

What are some highlights from the experience?
Learning pan sauces and more flavor profiles. 

What were some of your biggest challenges? 
My biggest challenge was believing in myself! 

What is your signature dish?
Pan seared rack of lamb with sweet potato purée and rainbow chard with champagne vinegar. 

What is one dish you want to learn how to make?
Macaroons - I'm still learning to master these. 

What would people be surprised to know about you?
I read newspapers all day, online and print (no for real). Also I refinish furniture and Reinvent old to new for a new decorative piece. And I go by “twerkingchef". 

What are you watching on TV these days?
The F word, MasterChef and, of course, Power! 

Anything else you want to tell America?
Live, love, laugh and when you open yourself up to be vulnerable, sometimes it helps you and not hurt you. Always know you can do anything that you put your mind to! All you have to do is try! Xoxo
