Back then, Bruno had no idea that her endeavors would one day allow some of the most influential star chefs to share ideas and mentor other food and beverage professionals as CEO and editor of the highly respected StarChefs.com. These chefs include Daniel Boulud, Anthony Bourdain, Elizabeth Falkner, Marcus Samuelsson, Masaharu Morimoto, Eric Ripert, José Andres, Pierre Hermé and many more. Hometown culinary stars like Woodberry Kitchen’s Spike Gjerde and Wit & Wisdom Pastry Chef Chris Ford credit StarChefs.com and annual conference for helping to propel their names to the top of the food industry.

Bruno received the Junior Achievement President of the Year and Company of the Year awards and sold more stock than any other Junior Achievement company in Maryland.
