Prepares Bread, Cookies, Desserts for University Students and Coast Guard Personnel
Lisa George is a 1st Class Petty Officer in the United States Coast Guard and is working as a baker for Aramark at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. She serves as a cook in the Coast Guard. In her baking job with Aramark, she caters for events and student dining, preparing breads, cookies, and desserts. Lisa is excited to have found her true passion—culinary arts.
She is inspired by others who share her passion and she looks to more experienced chefs for advice and suggestions. “I enjoy the process of completing a project, be it a cookie or plated dessert. When people are happy from [eating my food], I am happy.” Lisa, who in 2013 earned an Associate of Applied Science in Baking & Pastry from The Art Institute of San Antonio, says that her education built her confidence—both in interviews and in the kitchen. She recommends that current students stay focused and remember why they’re in the kitchen. “If you truly love culinary arts, then go for it. Live it.”
