Billy Voges (he/him)

I’m here to give back to the people of an industry that has always welcomed me with open arms; while deepening my own understanding of how to support others’ mental wellness. I plan on pursuing a career in mental health counseling.


Lila Simoncini (She/Her)

I worked as a restaurant server and manager in New York City and Boulder, Colorado, for an accumulation of 10 years. I traveled the world with food as my guide. I have a background in mental health and joined CHOW because it is the perfect combination of mental wellness and service industry community. I have been a holistic wellness practitioner and instructor for the past 10 years and have used these practices to heal through trauma, challenges and loss and help others do the same.

  • Kelsey Branch
    Kelsey Branch
    Test Kitchen Supervisor

    Kelsey Branch is 29 from Sea Girt, New Jersey and has been in the industry since she was 15. While at Johnson and Wales University, Charlotte, NC, she moved to Boston to complete an internship for PBS America’s Test Kitchen. After graduation, she joined the Apprenticeship Program at the Greenbrier, allowing her to compete in ACF competitions with her plating and ice carving skills. During her second year, she experienced a hip fracture that didn’t allow her to continue. This encouraged her to seek help to regain her physical strength while refining her culinary career and gain experience from other opportunities around the country. She currently works and resides in Los Angeles, and supervises a test kitchen downtown. Kelsey thrives on connecting with other like-minded culinarians, just like everyone at CHOW!
