Get to Know kori

Melita’s Table was born after I came to realize that healthy food could taste really amazing. I personally discovered the incredible health benefits of a whole food plant-based diet several years ago and never looked back. This dark kitchen concept embodies a vision I hold dear, and serves to dispel a myth that eating well means sacrificing flavor. I wanted a meal delivery service that caters to all types of dietary needs through flavorful and authentic Latin dishes.

After serving in the United State Air Force and working as a defense contractor, I developed strong analytic skills, which I’ve most recently put to work managing private investments and as an owner of Ori’Zaba’s Scratch Mexican Grill. Building on the wisdom I’ve gained from my experience in the restaurant industry, I decided now was the time to bring this new concept to the community.

My journey led me to pursue a Plant-Based Nutrition Certificate from eCornell’s T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies and to become a certified plant-based cooking professional through the Rouxbe Online Cooking School. I am also a personal trainer, certified by International Sports Sciences Association.

I am looking forward to sharing what I have learned on my health journey with you, and hope I can inspire you to research, dabble in or heartily embrace a cleaner, lighter way of eating and living on our planet. Wherever you may be on your journey, Melita’s Table welcomes you with open arms!
