Mai-Lis' father, a culinary arts professor and her mother, a wonderful cook in her own right, sparked her passion for great food. By age 15, Mai-Lis landed her first job in a gourmet kitchen shop, spending every free moment pouring over cookbooks and designing inspired in-store signage. After realizing her love for art and design, she went on to graduate Magna Cum-Laude from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth with a degree in Graphic Design and Letterform.
Mai-Lis began working as a designer with Stirrings in the early days and helped to build the brand by running the in-house graphic design department for three years. As founder of M-H Design, Mai-Lis has worked with a number of food and beverage clients.
Mai-Lis' role at F&B is brand support, product and package design, and execution.
