“My earliest recollections involve tasting warm potato bread fresh from the oven, slathered with homemade jam. I remember hearing the crisp crunch of fresh red cabbage, carrots, and raw turnips as my grandfather savored every bite of his daily salad during lunchtime, and I recall smelling the familiar, comforting aromas of garlic, toasted cumin, and black peppercorn as my grandmother prepared fideo con carne and a hot pot of beans at their ranch.”
From back of house kitchens and bakeries to concept development and culinary retail management — restaurant industry media communications to food writer — OMG’s career has always revolved around her love of cooking and all things food.
In 2015, she was selected as a finalist for Bravo’s Best New Restaurant The Mentorship contest. And, in July 2016, she was a guest reporter on Verify Road Trip, where she set out on a culinary journey to determine the true breakfast taco capital of Texas — documenting every step in her food blog, OMG’s DFW Food. In 2018, she was invited back to co-host, judge and consult on Verify’s Golden Tamale segment.
She loves to participate as a judge and host for food festivals and events, and she speaks frequently at schools about her adventures as a food blogger, as well as about her day-job as a communications consultant and brand story expert.
