Alicia Black graduated from Liaison College Barrie Campus in 2008, completing the Cook Basic Level 1 Program. The Level 1 Program is fifteen weeks in length and enables graduates to start working in a kitchen. Ms. Black began working at Casino Rama as a third cook. After a year and a half, she was then presented the opportunity to become Head Chef at a golf course, running the banquets and menus.
