Allison "Al" Stokes
Congratulations to Allison “Al” Stokes for becoming our Blacksburg Campus September Employee of the Month! Al joined our staff in April and brought a thoughtful yet sophisticated palate to round out our culinary team. Even from an early age she was destined to be a chef. Growing up she watched Julia Child on PBS and idolized her. Standing on a stool in the kitchen she pretended she was her, accent and all! After working in a few restaurants in Blacksburg she went to Portland to attend culinary school. Her west coast adventures included Japanese oysters, handmade squid ink pasta, Canon Beach(where the Goonies was filmed), & hiking the Redwoods which spurred a love for gardening. Now she is back home with friends and family running a community greenhouse in Blacksburg. We are proud to have you in our EM family!
