Beverly Worth Palomba is originally from Massachusetts where she worked in the computer industry as a product manager for a well know computer company. She moved from New England and has resided in the San Francisco Bay area for the past 25 years.
When she moved to California, Bev turned to her real love – education. She has been a teacher of grades PK through high school for more than 20 years. In the past eleven years she has worked exclusively in Special Education. She created a life skills cooking class five years ago at the local high school geared to the needs and abilities of her students. In addition, she provides cooking workshops at local community centers. From this curriculum has come her first book, Special Day Cooking, a life skills cookbook, which uses a unique instructional method that people with developmental challenges have responded to and enjoyed. This book has become a true labor of love.
Beverly has a husband (Dick), daughter (Gina) and a kitty named Kiwi.
