Meet Chef Jamie

Chef Jamie Lewis began her career 15 years ago at Charter Senior Living as a dietary aide and server. During her breaks, she’d help in the kitchen and quickly discovered a passion for cooking. Soon after, she was promoted to a cooking role.

“I always work hard and remain dedicated to my craft as well as to the residents. While working full time and being a mother to my two beautiful daughters, I made the decision to return to school as a full-time student. I was able to receive my associate degree in culinary science from the Culinary Institute of Virginia and used this knowledge to work my way up to sous chef and now dining services director. My favorite meal to cook for residents is chicken and dumplings because it reminds many of them of their childhoods. Their faces light up and make my heart smile.”
