Kelly and Dianne

Capt. Kelly
After attending culinary school, Kelly worked as a baker and cook at a catering company for ten years in Portland, Oregon. Upon leaving the catering business, Kelly put her culinary education together with her computer skills and worked as a consultant, implementing systems and controls in restaurants.
Chef Dianne
Dianne began working in the food industry in 1975. She graduated from Western Culinary Institute in 1989 and worked for The Red Lion Hotels. She was a Chef Instructor for 23 years at Le Cordon Bleu Portland (Oregon) and received Chef of the Year twice and several student appreciation awards.

In 2012, they felt it was time for a change. Dianne remembered her mom's favorite saying “a turtle only moves forward by sticking out its neck“. They decided it was time to live their dream so Dianne and Kelly sold almost everything they owned, including their house, and moved aboard Mango.
