Hi there! My name is Mackenzie and I am the Employment Preparation and Placement Specialist at Inspiration Kitchens, Inspiration Corporation's food service training program. I have been in my role for about ten months. I help students obtain jobs in the food service industry by teaching career advancement classes, conducting mock interviews, and providing ongoing support. I also share information about our program with restaurants and businesses throughout Chicago in order to build relationships with employer partners that are excited about hiring Inspiration Kitchens graduates.

Seeing students meet their own personal goals motivates me more than anything else. I love when students obtain jobs that they are passionate about and love going to every day.
