Creating environments that allow people to escape the day-to-day humdrum of life and experience an atmosphere and meal that makes them feel special is what brings me joy. This passion is not only shared by the James family, it is ingrained in the LaTrelle’s culture. Here, you are encouraged to use creativity and innovation as you pursue goals, and that’s something I find very refreshing and invigorating.
