Juanita Mooney

Head Chef - Cooking Classes & Catering

Juanita developed her passion for food, cooking and nutrition due to her kids and her own health issues including food intolerances and has now been on this journey for 18 years. In this time she has completed a Cert III in Commercial Cooking and is now studying a Bachelor of Medical Science, majoring in Nutrition. How cool is that? Lucky Juanita likes travelling as she has lived in many states and towns in Australia due to RAAF postings and now mining. Juanita has worked in cafes including full vego cafe, fine dining restaurants, catering and also lived on a Kimberley cattle station as station cook (insert epic diversity of skills here)!! Since moving to Mackay, Juanita’s focus has been on studying so she can ultimately teach nutrition combined with cooking. This all makes her a perfect addition to The Family Table!
