Meet Janese Boston
'I love to help people. Whether its through cooking or the community- creating smiles is a passion of mine" - Janese Boston
Chef Janese Boston is no stranger to a challenge. With a difficult past, Janese never thought she would become a professional chef. Her culinary career began in the kitchen of a country club where she assisted in food preparation and catering events. Realizing her love for food, she decided to attend the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and West Virginia Northern Community College, where she graduated with an Associate’s degree in Culinary Arts. She also holds an Associate’s Degree in Communications from Eastern Gateway Community College. Janese was fortunate to shadow many amazing chefs and work in a variety of luxury restaurants during her education.
With an entrepreneurial spirit and love for fine cuisine, Living Proof Chef Service was born. Janese has strived to perfect her craft over her career and enjoys sharing it with others. She is also extremely active in the community. Janese speaks regularly to community youth about how she overcame struggles of her own. She also hosts food drives, toy drives, cooking classes, is a motivational-speaker, and serves as an advocate for the incarcerated.
Throughout her career, Janese has dedicated much of her time to helping others. During her journey, she was blessed with the opportunity to cater a Christmas dinner for women and children of domestic violence. When not giving back or working on her business, you can find Janese experimenting in the kitchen, traveling, or spending time with her children.
