Wounded Warrior Becomes 'Chowventor'
The company had its humble beginnings in the kitchen of the 'Chowventor’s' childhood home. It was there she created her first innovative recipes. She started researching a career path selling recipes or cookbooks, but then considered manufacturing instead. As she gained confidence in her culinary abilities she came to realize that she had more to offer the world than just recipes. She wanted to create something bigger than herself. This new found inspiration became the basis for a ‘food invention’ company that honored her values toward animal welfare, human nutrition, environmental awareness, local economy, and her military roots. Prior to this culinary epiphany, she spent nearly 10 years serving her country in uniform. She was honorably discharged after the accumulation of ‘invisible wounds’ and began her new life as a 'wounded warrior.' Today she's determined to become an active member of society again the best way she knows how….to serve people, but now she does it with food. The company logo signifies trading in her military uniform for a culinary apron. She laid the groundwork for the beginnings of her company, and in January 1, 2015 Chowventions Inc. was born.
Hooah, Oorah, Hooyah!
