Meet Our Chefs

Jaclyn Joseph

With over ten years of experience in the culinary industry, Jaclyn has developed distinguished management skills while maintaining the thirst for knowledge in creating modern desserts and presentations. Upon graduating from Sullivan University, she was the sole student chosen to work the 2011 winter olympics in Vancouver, Canada. After her return, she ventured to New York city to stage at some of the top restaurants in the city – Gramercy Tavern and Lincoln Ristorante in the Lincoln Center. Her dedication to her craft and continuous desire to learn has landed her several appearances on local news stations as well as spotlights in some of Louisville’s top rated magazines and news outlets. She continually pays homage to her favorite saying, “Be humble. Be hungry. And always be the hardest worker in the room.”
