Comfort and Style
Residents gain a comforting community atmosphere when dining at Waltonwood, and eating with others has been shown to improve a person’s well-being and sense of belonging. We pride ourselves on our ability to offer residents menu alternatives for restricted dietary plans.
Our Ashburn chef and culinary team attend to residents’ individual needs by developing a dietary program that encourages good nutrition, with accommodating food choices to meet everyone's preferences.
Meet Our Executive Chef
Beth started cooking at a very young age. Her first memory was making an angel food cake for her mother’s birthday at age nine. As a young adult, she could be found in the kitchen baking, cooking and holding lavish dinner parties. While her first career was working as a Travel Agent for 12 years, affording her the opportunity to travel the world, after the tragic events of 9/11 she decided to live her dream and attended culinary school. Beth attended school in her native Chicago area and received degrees in Culinary Arts, Restaurant Management and Pastry Arts. She has participated in culinary competitions and earned a gold medal in Austria as part of a college competition team. After graduating culinary school in 2006, Beth honed her skills in restaurants and operated her own catering and pastry businesses. She was Executive Chef at the world-famous Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic and most recently at hospitals here in Virginia. In her spare time, Beth volunteers for SOWW (Serve our Willing Warriors) as a staff chef providing meals to wounded veterans and their families. She first had the opportunity to work in the senior living industry in 2016 and loved her experience. She is excited to return to senior living and share her love of cooking and international cuisine with the residents of Waltonwood.
