Hi, I’m Jay.

After 28 years of “corporate life,” I took a radical sabbatical in 2014 — driving 40,000 miles to visit friends and family in 48 states; as many art museum as possible; hundreds of National Parks, Monuments, and Historical Sites; and every Frank Lloyd Wright site I could find.

Moving to beautiful Palm Springs, CA in 2016, I set up Full Plate, LLC. Over time — thanks to my far-reaching interests and abilities, and my clients’ needs — I’ve expanded my full plate of offerings to include:

  • Full Plate: my flagship service — personal grocery-shopping and preparation of delicious, nutritious home-cooked meals

  • Desert DogFather: in-your-home pet care and home sitting

  • Palm Springs AfterGlo: a remarkable, hand-crafted skin moisturizer

  • EagleEyed Editor: freelance copy editing and proof reading for corporate clients

If your plate Feels too full, maybe you could use some assistance. Why not give me a call — Then Relax, and Let Full Plate help you!

A friend gave me the very thoughtful gift of several meals prepared by Full Plate after my husband passed away. Jay graciously accommodated my low-sodium request — and all the meals he prepared were, without exception, delicious (especially his lasagna).

It was a joy to watch Jay in action in my kitchen, and to visit with him as he worked. It’s apparent he truly loves to cook, and that he cares about his clients. I heartily recommend his services, and his delicious creations.
