My name is Stacey Wertzberger and I am the chef at Hy-Vee’s Fleur Drive store in Des Moines. I am a 2004 graduate of Iowa State University, where I received a degree in hotel and restaurant management. I worked for six years as a sous chef at the Downtown Marriott Hotel in Des Moines before joining Hy-Vee six years ago. I worked first as catering manager and then became the chef at the Fleur store in late 2012. What I love most about my job is being able to help people understand they can cook healthy meals without sacrificing flavor. I like helping people make memories in the kitchen. Most of my fondest memories are around the kitchen and food, and I like helping people understand that it’s not hard to make a gourmet meal that people will remember.
