Meet the Chef
Hi! I’m Destiny, the owner & Chef at FoodZen. My goal is to help lift the burden off of busy families, professionals, and aging seniors in our region by providing them with healthy and nutritious meals that are customized to their individual tastes and dietary needs.
Before graduating with honours from Liaison College, I spent over a decade as a business systems and operations specialist in the fast-paced, high-tech world. As a mom of three, I understand the demands of a busy schedule and the challenges of a work/life balance.
Growing up in Waterloo Region I spent hours in my grandmother’s kitchen developing my passion for wholesome, nutritious food. As my passion for food grew, and my ability to travel increased, I was able to expand my knowledge of international foods. Cooking has become an expression of my love to my family, friends, and the many local organizations I volunteer with, including The Kitchener Market, CISV Waterloo Region, and Timea’s Cause.
I'm here to help bring zen to busy family schedules, assist professionals in a better work/life balance, and help seniors maintain their independence, giving you peace of mind so you can devote more time to you!
