I have been in this industry for over thirty years now. I started working for the Yeoman Steak House in 1986 which was the main competition of the Sawmill Prime Rib and Steak House at that time. I was a line cook and took up the position of Chef and Kitchen Manager in 1988. In 1997 I had the opportunity to come to work for the Sawmill. I have worked for the Sawmill in many positions including: Broiler Cook, Executive Chef, Line Cook and now back to Executive Chef. I don’t know any other line of work besides cooking. Cooking is my passion and eating is my hobby! I strive to make every guest’s experience with the Sawmill a memorable one. My favorite Sawmill dish is the Lenwich, it is fast, easy & delicious.
Being a Lloydminster local, I started my career in the hospitality industry at local pub & billiards in 2010 as a server/bartender. My love for serving only continued to grow.
After my second child was born and significant lake time, I came back and started with Sawmill in 2015 as a lounge server. My now current position is supervisor and I am very pleased to be able to continue to grow and make every customers experience a memorable one.
People who know me would say I’m personable, confident and outgoing. My favourite dishes at Sawmill are our classic lemon chicken and our French onion soup.
Hope to see you there 🙂
My story is similar to many others in that, I started in the service industry when I was putting myself through University. I was fortunate enough to get a job as a lounge server at The Moose Factory even tho I had never served before! I stayed with the company for 2 years until we relocated to the Lloydminster area.
Joining the Lloyd team when they opened in 2015 was a welcome change from being a teacher and stay at home mom of 4, but both those professions, along with my dedication and cheerfulness, have enabled me to be a better server and supervisor.
I have many favorite menu items from crab cakes, to sirloin steaks to our homemade bread pudding, but my all time favorite item is our Sawmill Steak Sauce!!
I am thankful for this opportunity and look forward to continuing my journey with the Sawmill family.
