My name is Emily and I'm a self-taught chef, food enthusiast, and the Marie Bed & Breakfast's new innkeeper! When not at the inn, I'm a full time wife and a mother of three beautiful daughters. I found a love for food at a very young age. I even took my first steps in my grandmother's restaurant located in Tidewater, Oregon. I continued to work in the food industry in any way I could. Growing up in an Italian family I was taught that cooking comes from the heart and that is the same philosophy I bring to my work at The Marie. I thank my father for all his confidence and patience with me through all the years I had with him. The kitchen is truly my happy place!
