You may know her as Ms. Wild Thyme. Chef Davis started the business and cooking school in Lexington in August of 2011. Over the past ten years, she has provided cooking classes, events, catering, public appearances, including a local tv personality with ABC channel 36. Her vast knowledge of various cuisines, love of food, and education make her an ideal fit for the buttery and the Sayre family.

Chef Davis and her husband Joey have a seventh-grade daughter Jayda Davis currently at Sayre. As a Sayre parent, she has an investment in the school and its commitment to excellence. She looks forward to meeting all of you and bringing new and exciting changes to the menu and food service program.
A couple of Chef Davis's favorite Julia Childs Quotes:
"People who love to eat are always the best people..."
"Food is the common denominator that brings people together."
Welcome, Chef Davis!
