The Cultured Vegan became Chef Rain's passion after losing her father to brain cancer. She was moved to make it her life's work to educate people on healthy eating  and provide nutritious meals to those who embraced the vegan diet.  She has demonstrated her culinary expertise across the nation at outdoor festivals and markets, indoor expos, private parties, and for elite clientele. The Cultured Vegan's catering and personal chef service provides weekly meals to clients, teaches culinary classes for children ages 6 to 14 for the Waukegan Park District, numerous camps, daycare facilities and a homeschool in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  As the mother of one child with food allergens and another who followed in the culinary tradition by starting her own health conscious/special dietary bakery business, Chef Rain is also in the process of publishing her first children’s educational handbook/cookbook in English and Spanish. The book, entitled “Mama, I’m Be-Gan/ Mama, Soy Vegano”  is scheduled to be available Spring of 2020.
