I’m following my heart—in life & work.
My story: I am a Minnesota native who has lived in 5 states before landing in Boston to open restaurants.
It is there that I met the surf to my turf, married and had 2 sons.
Deciding it was best to raise the kids around family, we traded in the blustery winters for some fun in the sun. After 20 plus years in the restaurant industry, I found myself at a crossroad; a newly acquired bachelor degree yet a desire to stay home with my children. I stumbled across a fitness program for mom’s with children in strollers, FIT4MOM Tampa Bay, and fell in love. A newfound love of all things healthy emerged and I combined my two passions of fitness and food and created Christen Gray Culinary, where eating well is living well.
ABOVE: A highlight of my career… working alongside talented chef’s in our community to raise much needed funds for Florida Hospital by helping to create a dish judged by an idol Robert Irvine.
My ultimate goal is to share these two great loves with you — whether by inspiring you through my blog, offering private cooking lessons to you and your friends or family, or by simply doing what I do —Cooking!— for you. You can read my full list of the services here, but here’s the short list. 😉
