Jen Switzer is a personal chef with a life long love of food and entertaining. Planning and preparing the next meal for her family or the next event she is hosting for friends has always been a favorite way to spend the day. Her evenings include reading cookbooks and cooking magazines as if they were novels or researching or testing recipes that she has developed or discovered.
Since her daughter is now grown and there is only so much food that her husband and she can consume, she opened Jen's Personal Chef Service to share her passion for food and entertaining with others in Virginia Beach, Virginia in 2012. While in Virginia Beach, she fine tuned her culinary skills at the Art Institutes International Culinary School.
As a personal chef, she plans, shops, and prepares meals for those who don't have time to shop and cook, are looking for an alternative to take out and dining at restaurants or just don't like to cook.
After growing and developing a successful business in Virginia Beach, life had other plans for her. 2014 provides her with the opportunity to bring her business to Florida. She is looking forward to providing her services with the passion for food and entertaining to a new clients in and around the Bradenton, Florida area.

She was the preferred on-board catering vendor for one of the main yacht charter companies while in Virginia Beach.
