Today's conversation is with Chef Mica Chavez (also known as
Chef Michelle) of Santa Fe.
Mica has a pretty big personality and if you’ve met her, you know that. But she’s also got a big smile and a big laugh and an this amazing aura and you can’t help but just feel lifted up in her presence. If you ever have a chance to take a cooking class with her, you’ll see what I mean.
In our conversation, she’s pretty honest when talking about her dark times and also how she finally got herself into recovery for drinking.
But we start with her early years working in restaurants (and how those were not healthy experiences for her) but also how she made a transition into sobriety after moving from Texas to Santa Fe where the lifestyle was so different (in a good way) than what she had been used to.
And at 48 ½ she believes there’s so much more ahead of her than is behind her.
