"Inspiring, stimulating, informative, educational are all adjectives I could use when describing Chef Deb and her presentation.  What I found most intriguing was that I learned about food sensitivity for the first time!  Many of my clients had the same experience and expressed those thoughts to me- well worth the time spent."

Joan Arcierio, Executive VP Creating and Managing Wealth LLC
