Kitchen Assistant

Are you a good fit?

Do the words "organize" and "healthy meals" get you excited? Do you love to chop and prep food? Do you get excited about cleaning up a messy space and making it look great again? 

It is important that you are well-organized, have attention to detail and are able to work efficiently under time constraints. 

Are you looking for a job that will allow you to work in a fast paced work environment where the time flies? Where you can listen to your favourite music while you work? Where you can wear your comfiest pants to work every day?

Do you want a culinary job that offers daytime hours only so that you can be with your family or doing more of what you love at night?

Do you work well with a team?

I am looking for the assistant who will join my team to get our client's meals prepped and packaged each day. You will be helping prep the food and be in charge of cleaning up and organizing our space as we go. We will be cooking for incredible clients who genuinely value great food and must have our meals finished on time each day for delivery.

This is a physical job that requires standing the entire time, keeping focused, being confident with a knife and sometimes a bit of heavy lifting.

After cooking in my clients homes for many years on my own, I am transitioning into a commercial kitchen located in Stittsville and I want to build a strong (although small), committed team for the long term, in order to serve more amazing clients.

"Kristin! We devoured everything you made for us. Every single meal was tasty and the portions were generous! The 40 meals lasted about 3 weeks and it was so easy to put together. Instructions were very clear and so helpful as well. Definitely will be hearing from me again! Amazing."


"With 4 young children cooking fresh and healthy meals every evening can be challenging. I love that I now have our freezer stocked with lots of healthy options that the kids will enjoy too! Thanks for your services Kristin."


"Kristin you have been a godsend. Your cooking is outstanding and Hailey and I have enjoyed everything! Knowing that we are eating healthy is HUGE and having you prepare and even deliver the meals makes it so easy. Looking forward to our next order! :)"


I work with people who desperately want to be living a healthy lifestyle that they love without feeling like it is a full time job.
I help them get exactly what they want which is to have more energy, to focus on what actually brings joy to their life (instead of worrying about their health) and to love what they see when they look in the mirror.
I am a Holistic Nutritionist and a personal chef.
And when I am not coaching my nutrition clients or cooking for my personal chef clients I can be found writing folk/rock music...(keep reading)
