Good Day to all. 

My name is Chef Genie Worthman. I have been in the Culinary Industry since 1999 starting from the bottom working my way up. I have a deep love and compassion for this field and love teaching people who show the same love for this work.  In this field you either love it or hate it and i want to make sure the students we teach know that.  I always say its better to love your job so it does not feel like work.

I was born and raised in Long Island NY, went to Johnson and Wales University in Providence RI, and for the last 5 years i have been a Fl resident.                                                                                   I started teaching in 2012 in Buffalo NY and moved down to FL and was hired at Orange County Schools as there Culinary teacher. I left for 4 years to work in the industry and now i am back teaching here at Forest High School. "Go Wildcats"  Also a Wildcat graduate but from another state but once a Wildcat always a Wildcat just from another state.
