“I was fresh out of high school and my father told me to get a job. I had a few friends who worked at Luna at that time and they were able to get me a job as a dishwasher. From then on, I grew to love the culinary environment and the rush that drives the kitchen territory. You could truly say I started from the bottom, which is another reason to be grateful. I’m now here! I’ve worked at a variety of high-end restaurants, landing at Clover in 2014. Several Chef’s have molded me into the Executive Chef I have become. I have worked in four restaurants in a decade time frame and Clover has by far blown all of them out of the water in every aspect of what we represent here. I have learned so much here; as a result, I see myself, along with Clover, continuing to grow and succeed for many years to come.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family. I have a son, Kemper, and a daughter, Raelynn, a beautiful fiance, Amber, and her son, Talyn; and, our little family means the world to me. I also enjoy Sunday dinners with the whole family. I have two sisters whom I’m very close with, also a niece and nephew whom I adore. In the nicer weather months, I play golf and enjoy playing basketball to get ready for Hoopfest! Relaxing and being on the lake with my Dad – cruising around on his boat. Going to the park with the kiddos and letting them go crazy. I enjoy BBQing and sitting out on my patio with my closest people – just loving life. Over the last few years I’ve also found a new love for fitness after watching my sister absolutely kill her goals and watching her shrink into a whole new person. She got me on board and I’ve enjoyed this journey of becoming a healthier stronger version of myself. ” – Kory Schimanski
