Reviews from culinary leaders...

Cynthia emulates the type of person most suited for our profession.  She is a fine culinary professional and is one of the finest women I have met in my teaching career.  Cynthia is a real professional, and has the upmost respect of the instructors at MCI.  My fellow ACF Chef instructors are on record as reiterating my sentiments.

Cynthia has proven herself to be an outstanding student.  She excels in both the classroom and culinary lab.  Always prepared and engaged in the material.  The hospitality industry and Cincinnati State need more professionals like her.

Cynthia is a rare professional and has not only done what is required, but continues seeking to get as much knowledge and benefit from her education.  She has obtained several certifications in the hospital industry to compliment her degree.  Professionals of her caliber would contribute  greatly to the hospitality industry.

Cynthia taught a great class with us in September on her speciality Caribbean Cuisine.  Some comments from the students: ”She was very entertaining and knowledgeable - great fun,” and, “Fun, lots of energy with great stories.  Kept my attention. With some background music (and a bit of dancing), she provided great  Caribbean flavor and ambiance.  She taught one of the most entertaining classes that we have had in a while.  We would love to have her back to teach a class with us anytime.
