Sous Chef & Pâtissier

Kellie came to the Holy City from Akron, Ohio in 2014, to pursue her Baking & Pastry degree at the Art Institute of Charleston.  Her passion for the culinary arts started at a young age and she finds she is happiest in the kitchen. Before making her way to Wild Thyme Catering she worked for Wild Dunes Resort on Isle of Palms. Mastering baking and pastries gave her an eye for the intricate detail in garde manger. In her current role she’s excited to use her creativity to develop new menu ideas. In her free time she likes to spend time with her fur babies Molly and Jax, along with her husband Aaron. She enjoys going to the James Island Park and go on walks with her dog.  She also enjoys staying home and cooking for family and friends.

I have used Wild Thyme Catering & Events for breakfast and lunch the last two years for a company meeting. It is hard to satisfy a group of 30 and make everyone happy but I have heard nothing but great things from my coworkers regarding the food, especially the fajita bar! -Andrea Kelly 



Had a family reunion for 20 people and it went off without a hitch thanks to Wild Thymes! Very accommodating with the menu and made great suggestions. Very good communication, follow up and delivery! And the food was fantastic and plentiful (lots of leftovers), included salads and breads..Very well done and very reasonable



Wild Thyme catered an event for our organization. The delivery and set up was prompt, and the food was amazing. The portions were very generous. The attendees were very complimentary. I highly recommend
