Back to Class with NOCCA faculty member (and former student) Jessie Wightkin Gelini

Jessie Wightkin Gelini is a Culinary Arts faculty member at NOCCA and a former NOCCA student (in dance!). Here, she talks about how she made the transition from dancer to chef; how the Culinary Arts department has adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic; and what sort of students should consider applying to the program.

Do you know a junior high or high school student in the New Orleans area who wants to apply to NOCCA? Send them to!
