With an early thirst for exploring, Leeann relocated to St. John, USVI after completing a university degree in Boston. She became an avid boating and water enthusiast. After being introduced to the yachting industry in 2009, she began filling roles on yachts as a stewardess and chef. The environment suited her hard working attitude, and offered the opportunity to acquire her rescue diver certification, as she became an avid diver. Leeann received a culinary degree in 2014 from The New England Culinary Institute seeking an opportunity to add to her skills at sea. She has expanded on this study by working on the line in Charleston, SC cooking farm to table southern fare, and privately cooking on a yacht fostering a creative vegan and sugar free cuisine. She has since trained crew both on boats and in a program for yacht crew employment. Leeann has now been freelancing for over a year as chef on high-end charter yachts.
