September/October 2022 Edition


“I was so honored to have been selected by Chef Eric Eisenberg, our AHF President, to receive this special service award this year at our annual conference. Eric and I have known each other since the inception of AHF and worked together on my first committee assignment on the Culinary Competition Committee. Being a part of AHF National and our local NJ chapter for the last 12 years has definitely given me the ability to grow our business, improve our nu- trition team and my enhance my leadership skills. Networking with fellow operators and business partners has been invaluable part of being able to get business done every day at our facility. I know who to reach out to when we are searching for products, equipment, technology and anything else that helps us grow and improve our business. Giving my time and expertise to the organization is so small compared to what I get back. I view AHF and its members as one of my family units and giving to family is incredibly essential.”
