What Hell's Kitchen Winner Holli Ugalde Is Doing Now
After winning Season 7 of Hell’s Kitchen, Holli Ugalde was offered a job at London's prestigious Savoy Grill, yet the offer fell through due to reported visa issues. Ugalde, however, says she never even filled out nor saw any paperwork for a visa, and had to accept the prize money instead.
Ugalde went on to work as an executive chef at B Ocean’s in Florida, but later switched to working as a designer, and also launched the lifestyle program SENS Wellness. On her Twitter profile, Ugalde describes herself as a farmer, a chef, a philanthropist, an educator, an entrepreneur, and more.
Per her LinkedIn, Ugalde has explored many industries. She's worked as an organic farmer at Green Acres Culinary Farm, as a design manager at Beaumont Electric, as a business owner in the lighting industry, and acted as a spokesperson for her alma mater, Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts.
