Kara Healy, Sous Chef

A Dallas native, Sous Chef Kara Healy’s passion for food started at a young age. Growing up surrounded by a family who loved to cook, she graduated from Le Cordon Bleu Dallas in 2017. After graduation, she began as a line cook at the now-closed Filament, a southern-inspired restaurant helped by Matt McCallister. Later that year, she worked as a sous chef at Launderette in Austin before making a move to McKinney, TX, in 2019 to work at Sugarbacon and Local Yocal. She moved back to Dallas in 2021 to work in Japanese restaurant Uchi, where she worked on the line and handled pastry production. In 2022, she joined the Kimpton family as Sous Chef at the American-farmhouse inspired Elm & Good, where she brings a love of local, seasonal products into menu creation and operations. When she’s not in the kitchen, Healy can be found reading, playing video games, or hanging out with her husband and one-year-old daughter.
