Nice to Hear Testimonials

If you are looking for a culinary nutrition speaker I strongly recommend Michele Redmond. Her presentation at the California Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Annual Conference was outstanding and her audience scores were excellent (5/5).

Kathy Sucher, Sc.D., RD

Professor; Director -CASA Student Success Center at San Jose State University

Chef Michele did a fantastic job presenting easily digestible (pun intended!) information to employees (4 sessions). Employees were engaged and left each session learning something new. I would highly recommend Chef Michele for cooking demos, but also for her professionalism and fun, balanced approach to healthy eating. 

Jordan Smith

Wellness Superviser, Maricopa County

With great confidence, I recommend Michele Redmond as a public speaker. The program she conducted is the largest attended on record. Michele has the presence, talent, skill, expertise, and creative methods for teaching that demonstrate her genuine intention to make a difference to the people she serves.

Janet Ward

Registered Dietitian, Dignity Health Medical Foundation

Her knowledge of both nutrition and culinary techniques is vast, and it’s the perfect combination to promote taste and enjoyment as well as health. I always learn something new when she speaks. Michele’s style of presentation is engaging and keeps the audience’s attention.

Terri Verason

VP Nutrition Education, Dairy Council of Arizona

What an incredible job! She was professional and engaging. She did an excellent job interacting with the in-person attendees, as well as the virtual attendees who participated via phone and web conference. Attendees were surveyed and provided excellent responses. Michele did an awesome job and the attendees truly appreciated the topic and her presentation.

Steven Leibensperger, Community Liaison, AHCCCS

I contracted Michele to develop and lead culinary trainings for school districts. Michele was fabulous to work with! She customized the content to fit the specific contexts and needs of each of the three districts. All three districts sent back great reviews sharing how they planned to use the content she provided in their kitchens and how much their child nutrition staff enjoyed her presentations.

Emily Watt Clark, RD School Nutrition Specialist at AZ DOE

Michele is a rock star! She is a chef-dietitian whose passion for food and love for cooking make her events and presentations nothing short of entertaining. She connects easily with people in small and large group settings. She was dependable during the planning phase and totally organized the night of the event. Michele is a natural "on stage"; she has a calm presence with consistent humor. She engages well with the audience and provides useful nuggets of information. I continue to receive requests from the membership to invite Michele back to present.
