#RLCMoments: Emily Remby, AM Cook, Towne Center
The scent would fill our house. My fascination with bread has never faded.
I grew up in Syracuse, New York. I was going to school for several different areas, including art history and accounting. But when I asked myself what it was that truly made me happy, I realized it was cooking. So I decided to go back to school once more - this time to culinary school.

As AM Cook, one of my favorite parts of my day here is preparing and serving breakfast. My morning team and I - we love to be the first people the residents see in the morning. We enjoy having the opportunity to talk with them and to start their day off in an enjoyable way. I squeeze my baking in whenever I have time - during prep times or slow times during breakfast and lunch. And when I'm not baking, I enjoy gardening, quilting, and experimenting with recipes at home.
