I am a simple and god fearing person from the Philippines. I started working at the age of 20 and was married at 21. I am the proud mother of 2 teenage daughters. I started off working in the electronics industry then became a government employee. I later moved into the food industry and started taking culinary courses where I earned my certificate of completion in culinary.
In February 2009 I started my journey to Canada. I started working at Cantafio’s Steakhouse & bar as a food and beverage server, after a few months of that I joined the BOH staff as a line cook. The manager saw potential in me for the kitchen and after 2 years was able to renew my contract as a line cook rather than a server. Plans were made to bring my family here to Stony Plain.
In May 2012 the restaurant sold and I stayed with the restaurant and began yet another chapter of her life with The Sawmill. I have worked hard over the past 3 years here earning my way up to Executive Sous Chef.
My favorite Sawmill dish is the Salmon and Beet salad, I love the freshness of it plus the homemade honey balsamic dressing is the best.
Faye (as the staff call me) loves overseeing the brunch set up and training new staff. I love interacting with new people and getting to know them.
My father is a influential person in my life, he gives me strength and moral support.
