Growing up in a small suburb of Virginia Beach, Xan knew he wanted to work in hospitality one day. While attending James Madison University, he worked his way through school with restaurant jobs and encouragement from his parents, both veterans of the culinary industry.
Our students, and all of us are immensely grateful for the mentorship and inspiration our amazing partner restaurants provide.
