Chef Maika

Owner of Growth Culinary LLC

“I graduated high school in 2001 at 16 years old and, with no hesitation, ​went straight into culinary school in West Palm Beach. I actually applied ​to Johnson and Wales but didn’t realize I applied for the following year. ​When I didn’t hear from them, I went to Florida Culinary Institute, founded ​in 1987 (unfortunately, it no longer exists!) and got my two degrees.”

“Despite the mistake, I’m happy I went to FCI, a smaller school, ​which meant unforgettable connections. Got my first cooking ​gig at PGA National Resort. Then, through established ​relationships with the school, I ended up at the Ritz Carlton ​Hotel Company, the leaders of high-quality, personalized ​hospitality.”

“Life abruptly changed. Culinary was paused to take care of my ​son with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) as a single mom, got ​my master's, and became a Special Needs Educator. A couple of ​decades later, I’m back constructing my own culinary career in ​my vision through a mosaic lens, understanding the importance ​of meeting people where they are and building up from there.”
