Hello, I’m Courtney – Personal Chef and Nutritionist
Nutrition Thyme RD
Est. 2019 / Healthy, personalized, and delicious meals
for the week and special occasions
I cook because cooking is very personal and individualized; where you can share your journey and discover others. There’s the act of creating something extraordinary out of nothing with a few simple ingredients. You can see the smile on your guests after the meal begins.
I have a passion for food and the science behind nutrition. I enjoy helping people find their individual healthy food path and journey. I am a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu College of the Culinary Arts in Sacramento and later Seattle Pacific University with a Bachelor’s in Food and Nutritional Sciences, Dietetics. I am a Nutritionist with experience working in the healthcare field and I find joy in educating individuals. I especially have experience in creating specialized menus from gourmet to simple menus. I also enjoy working with culinary professionals and on recipe development using various ingredients and techniques.
I was born and raised in Sacramento, moved to Walla Walla, then was a Seattleite – and now in Phoenix. I enjoy baking, exploring various areas to discover new eateries and cuisines, and going on outdoor adventures. I’ve been involved in many culinary events around the country in places such as Charleston, Philadelphia, Sacramento, and Seattle.
