One-on-One with a SAGE Food Service Director: Kerry Watts

SAGE Community, One-on-Onesage img

Kerry Watts is the SAGE Food Service Director at Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, VA. Kerry’s been with SAGE for eight years, all of which she’s spent with her community at Hargrave. How did you get started with food service? I got a job at the local pizza joint during college. It felt very natural. I picked up restaurant gigs when I moved to Colorado, and then to Santa Fe, where I started working in restaurants that actually got press...

One-on-One with a SAGE FSD: Rylan Jeffries

SAGE Community, One-on-Onesage img

Meet Rylan Jeffries, a former junior softball Olympian and the beloved Food Service Director of River Oaks Baptist School in Houston. How did you get into cooking? My husband—who’s also a SAGE Food Service Director, incidentally—is the reason I got into cooking. I was 21 at the time, and when he came over to my apartment, there was really no food in the house. Somehow he managed to put together this crazy casserole with chicken, cheese, olives, and cornichons. If...

SAGE Community, One-on-Onesage img

Kim Durm has served as the Executive Chef at Notre Dame of Maryland University (NDMU) since November of 2015, and she’s been with SAGE since 1995. Kim’s sage (lowercase, that is) advice on life and teamwork is informed by her keen sense of humor, refreshing perspective, and generous goodwill. How did you get into the foodservice business, and with SAGE? Actually, I wanted to be a cop. But I was a very hyperactive child. I had to be doing something...

One-on-One with a Food Service Director: Alice Mathews

SAGE Community, One-on-One, Featured Venuesage img

Alice Mathews, Food Service Director at St. Martin's Episcopal School in Atlanta, GA, feels a responsibility to help students develop healthy eating habits while keeping the lunch experience fun and exciting! Who inspired you to cook? My grandmother loved to cook and I loved to spend time with her. She never followed a recipe. She just used a pinch of this, a dash of that, and whatever ingredients were around. If you could prepare a meal for anyone, past or present, who would it be, and what would you...

Meet Senior Software Engineer Leela Sedaghat—violinist, fashionista, and ping-pong player extraordinaire—a Renaissance woman whose easy eloquence and big-picture sensibility fly in the face of the one-dimensional "techie" stereotype.

One-on-One with a SAGE Chef

Purchasing, SAGE Community, One-on-Onesage img

Erin Still is SAGE's newly-promoted Director of Menu Development. Well-known for the delicious snacks she prepares at the Home Office (including a tart, creamy Key lime pie, which I sampled thoroughly in the interest of journalistic integrity), Erin began working at SAGE almost nine years ago as a Food Service Director (FSD) at schools in Baltimore. She then served as Purchasing Manager before being promoted to her current position. Read on to learn more about Erin! How did you end...
