Welcome! I am excited to be writing and hope that i can provide some tips and tricks of the trade, share some delicious recipes and a story or two along the way.
I want to briefly introduce myself and Moxie Consulting, so that you can understand why I am choosing to put myself out into the world in this way and what inspires me. My name is Michelle O’Connor. I am a west coast girl and I have been surrounded by good, home grown, home made food my entire life. When it came time to decide to do what i love, i found myself naturally drawn to the food service industry. I chose jobs based on the values of the business, and i have been lucky to spend my entire career in kitchens surrounded by organic and locally grown ingredients. Somewhere along the way, i had the courage to step away from the cutting board and try my hand at leading teams to be efficient and successful in the kitchen while still enjoying the camaraderie and fun that kitchen work has to offer, and i never looked back.
Moxie by definition means pep, energy, courage and dedication. I chose this name for my consulting business because after years of hard work, i realize that Moxie truly embodies the energy that I bring to the table. I am an energetic person that does not shy away from hard work and long hours. I have the courage and dedication it takes to implement changes that will lead to success. I love a good belly laugh and that is exactly what i did when Moxie was suggested as my business name. It fits perfectly and i look forward to channeling my moxie to inspire and help others reach their highest potentials.
Be well, and until next time…Enjoy!
