After being diagnosed with diabetes, Tawni started flipping recipes to make them healthier, and in the process discovered her next career path.
Twenty years ago, Tawni fell into an accounting profession, but without formal schooling. She was good at it, and it paid the bills, but it wasn’t her passion. After being diagnosed with diabetes, Tawni started flipping recipes to make them healthier, and in the process discovered her next career path.
Tawni is a five-year city councilwoman and two-year city council president in Aberdeen looking to bring healthy change back to her hometown. The Culinary Arts program has helped her develop a holistic understanding of the culinary world—both in the kitchen and business. Tawni hopes to work as a chef in an established community restaurant or open her own food truck to bring better service and food options to the people of Aberdeen.
“Not only will I have the culinary skills, I can run a business or a small cafe. The program covers all of that.” - Tawni, Health food believer. Community leader. #chefintraining
