Selected Story

Kaelyn DeFran

A Schoolcraft College culinary grad, Kaelyn’s career actually began as a bartender. Having found her calling in the kitchen, Kaelyn cooked at The Root in White Lake, MI, before joining us in November 2014. A book lover, traveler, and classically trained pianist of 20 years, she maintains a number of interests, including gardening. Kaelyn helps oversee the restaurant’s sizeable plots, and her dedication to outstanding produce knows no bounds: To get the finest ingredients to a Selden Standard catering site, she once rode in a farm crate among stacks of tomatoes and melons in the back of a station wagon.
