L’anima, Chocolate & Pastries/ Research Consultant |  Owner  |  Nov 2010 – May 2012

As a newcomer to the confectionary arts, I experimented and developed recipes for sugar-free chocolate truffles utilizing Stevia, a 100% natural sweetener.

Through research and development, business/ project plans were developed to successfully recruit specialty experts and consultants, create Research & Development schedules, updates, budget, and identify small local business who would be the ideal distributor for these products.
