Ivania Garcia started working as our head chef in 2016. She's one of the brightest young women in our community. Her imagination, openness, and creativity in our kitchen has elevated the quality of the Ranch's cuisine enormously at a time when we considered it to already be extremely high. She's a strong community leader, a caring family member, and selfless with her time and energy. Don't let her quiet nature fool you! She's a force to be reckoned with and we're so fortunate to have her in both the Ranch and Mastatal community. She is the type of individual that we need to create opportunities for so that people of her quality do not have to seek work outside of our region. Ivania's potential is just beginning to get revealed and we look forward to developing and evolving together in the years to come.
