Katy received her degree after spending four years studying culinary arts at Johnson and Wales University. She then studied Pan-Asian cuisine in Singapore and in the north of Thailand. This is where her love for Asian inspiration comes from, however she gladly welcomes diversity into her cooking styles where she can cater to your specific palate or diet. When Katy isn’t working aboard, you can find her playing her ukulele or outdoors enjoying activities such as skiing, horseback riding, water sports, and exploring. Katy’s passion for travel has not only broadened her horizons in the food world, but it has also guided her in the direction of working aboard WILD KINGDOM.
