Jennifer Tye (@dctaste) had a steady job as a marketing executive in Washington D.C., but that wasn’t what she wanted out of life. So one day she decided to leave it all behind and go to culinary school at L’Academie de Cuisine in Washington, D.C, where she eventually became an instructor. She worked for two years at Michel Richard Citronelle, one of the best restaurants in the country. And she eventually started her own catering business. Jennifer talks about the scrappy early days as she grew her business and how it compares to the current environment after going through months of quarantine. Jennifer’s story is an inspiration to anyone looking to change careers and follow a dream.
Jennifer’s husband is former podcast guest Kendall Cross, who was an Olympic Gold Medalist wrestler and coached me growing up.
