Born under the snowy peaks of Tehran and raised in the bayou of Louisiana, I found my way to Montana in 2003. I’m no stranger to Mountain Sky, having worked in guest services, maintenance and in the kitchen from 2003-2008. Even as a cook, I was regularly involved with the kids program talent show and loved the opportunity to play guitar and piano. After leaving Mountain Sky, I earned a master’s degree in environmental sciences at Montana State University in 2011 and conducted field research until 2015. I then found my way back to food and beverage as the Executive Catering Chef at MSU, and back to ranching as the Events and Beverage Manager at Flathead Lake Lodge.
