The Miller Center is excited to announce our December 2018 Employee of the Month, Cornerstone Kitchen chef, baker, recipe maker, Marti Miller!
Marti is an extremely forward facing member of the Cornerstone Kitchen team here at The Miller Center. She’s often seen behind the counter taking care of hungry customers, but her real contributions come from behind the scenes. Countless diners have enjoyed Marti’s creations, and her weekly specials have received rave reviews on social media and at the café. She love so bake, cook and create delicious dishes and her passion is our benefit – amazing tasting food made fresh from whole ingredients found locally. She is truly a culinary artiste!
Marti was born in Lewisburg and currently resides in Mifflinburg. Her extended family includes a handsome baby nephew that frequents the Cornerstone Kitchen and we have it on good authority Aunt Marti attempts to spoil him generously.
Marti’s background includes baking and cooking at Green Ridge Country Market and she served as Supplies Coordinator & Event Server at Bucknell Dining & Catering. The fast paced, high volume environment at Bucknell prepared her well for big tournament and event weekends here at The Miller Center.
Cornerstone Kitchen General Manager Chris Wheeler spoke of Marti’s contributions. “Marti is great! She has helped with creating and tweaking recipes for the menu, prepares weekly soups and specials and is consistently looking for new ideas. Saying Marti is a hard worker is an understatement; she puts in a lot of time & energy and goes above and beyond what is asked or expected to make the kitchen function. She was an integral part in planning, preparing and managing the café’s involvement with the UnPAved event this past October. Marti has a mountain of patience and a great sense of humor (which she needs to work with me!). Most of all, Marti is humble. She truly is a pleasure to work with, and I cannot be more pleased to have her as part of my team and assisting me with managing the Cornerstone Kitchen.”
When Marti is not creating delicious creations in the Cornerstone Kitchen or at home, she loves to spend time with her family, especially her 13 nieces and nephews. She calls them, “The coolest people in her family!” She’s a Penn State and Philadelphia Eagles fan and her creativity never stops when it comes to healthy recipes.
Congratulations, Marti! Thank you for your delicious contributions to the Cornerstone Kitchen at The Miller Center. We’re delighted to have you here and even more happy that we get to taste your enchanting creations. As the December 2018 Employee of the Month, Marti will receive a gift certificate and her very own parking spot.
