A career in food was on Gillian’s mind from a young age. She grew up reading cookbooks and serving as her mother’s sous chef. After earning a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the University of Rhode Island, Gillian worked as a freelance food journalist and public relations specialist for the online grocery delivery company, FreshDirect.
When she decided she wanted to work in the kitchen, Gillian earned a culinary certificate from the Natural Gourmet Institute in New York. She cut her teeth as a line cook at Reynard at the Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg before joining the What We Eat team in 2017. While she’ll try any food at least once, she’s a firm believer in the concept of food as medicine and is eager to help her clients eat well without sacrificing variety or flavor!
