The Opposite of Ominous –
I have been on a journey for a good 6 or 7 years now beginning with some dissatisfaction in my previous engineering gig leading to my new life as a sous chef here in Yellowstone National Park. Little did I know that this trek would lead to auspicious surroundings led by two great bosses (Thanks Kat and Chef Tony!) that I adore and a job that can only be summed up as “perfect” for me at this time. Besides, I’m doing it among some of our country’s most diverse wildlife.

MY FIRST HARD LESSON – EMPLOYEE RELATIONS
I love helping folks and training and mentoring/coaching the new cooks; it gives me great pleasure! The cooks see my delight in helping them and this lends itself to a tsunami of questions. I do, however, wonder if they understand what a busy chef looks like and that, perhaps, they may wait to ask their question or even figure it out on their own?

Have a great day and never give up!
