Chef Thomas Burke
Chef Thomas attended Johnson and Wales University in Providence Rhode Island studying Culinary Arts. Thomas owned and managed “The Boar’s Pub” restaurant in a mountain town in Northern California while working in a Casino Hotel in Reno, Nevada.
Returning to Colorado, he opened a Southwestern restaurant in Downtown Denver. Thomas also owned and operated a dining and catering service with the Federal Government as well as private aircraft services and breakfast burrito business serving local coffee shops in the metro area..
Thomas has spent the last few years working with seniors in retirement communities and found his passion in life. He has learned how to prepare foods for seniors and has become considerate of the changes everyone will pass through as they age. Thomas obtained his Assisted Living Administrator Residence Certificate with the State of Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment to continue his career in serving our seniors.
Thomas wasn’t happy with the controls and systems in the corporate world of senior care and knew that it is the personal flairs that make people’s lives wonderful. So he started “You’re Home Dining Services” to provide nutrition, compassion and companionship to the growing elder population. Thomas sought out retirement but found himself drawn back to being a servant again. Now, Thomas has joined with Pine Grove Crossing Senior Living to practice serving the community and show each resident that they have earned his services.
