Arleen Lloyd has been in love with cooking since she was 5 years old. Once she was tall enough, she began creating mouthwatering delights in real kitchens. Arleen studied at FIU in Miami and earned a bachelors in marketing and a masters in international business. Arleen followed the standard progression after college and became a corporate executive in marketing. Arleen found herself constantly gravitating towards kitchen equipment and all it had to offer. Finally, in 1987 she realized her passion and opened a catering business with both wholesale and retail divisions in Miami, FL. She is currently the Executive Chef of Alchemy of the Hearth, and teaches culinary classes within San Diego County.
