She is dedicated to assisting women, children, and families about how to use their personal gifts as powerful, practical tools designed to help them identify healthy lifestyles in mind, body, and soul as productive members of thriving communities.
In 2014, she established her primary brand, “Tommi V.: Feels Like Comfort, Tastes Like Home ®,” which combines her professional culinary expertise with her personal history and memories formed in her Nana Edie’s kitchen.
