LaSonya Holmes-Boulware (My Girls Catering and Food Truck) was born in Cleveland Ohio on January 23rd 1977 to Bessie Jackson, Beautician from the small town of Blair, South Carolina. LaSonya’s mother was her first inspiration to begin cooking. The youngest of five children LaSonya could remember always coming home from school to a cooked meal.
On summer vacations Sonya family would travel back to Blair, South Carolina where she would sit for hours watching her grandfather cook on his hand dug barbecue pit. This is where her true inspiration came from to become a chef.
LaSonya had all intentions of learning as many techniques of food preparation as possible. Which sent her into the Culinary Arts Program at Guilford Technical Community College where she graduated from the program with her Culinary Certificate in May 2015.
LaSonya currently owns one of the most recognized food trucks in Greensboro “Carolina’s Finest” food truck and a catering company “My Girls Catering” which is building its name every day. Her support comes from a wonderful husband Christopher Boulware and two daughters Madison and Haleigh along with her Mother Bessie Jackson.
