Originally born and raised in Jamaica, Jolene moved to the Cayman Islands almost 20 years ago and has lived there ever since. Always passionate about food, she entered the Cayman Cookout Amateur Chef Cook-Off competition in 2009 and went on to win the title in 2010; a move that would begin her culinary career with The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman for almost 6 years. Her training and experience in those 6 years along with being personally motivated to live a healthier life, found Jolene deeply focused on the pitfalls of our common, every day diets built around artificial foods, chemicals, and generally unhealthy outlook on what we eat.
Seeing a need to encourage friends and family to improve their health starting with their diets, in 2016 she launched her nutrition-based, meal delivery service, Ny.maste. Crafting complete, nutrient dense and delicious salads based on whole foods that nourish body, mind and soul and delivering to her health conscious clientele island-wide.
