Chef Patricia Williams of Ten Chairs - Culinary Choreography
When Patricia Williams retired from her glamorous career as an accomplished professional ballerina at just age 30, she had no clear plan for what was next. So, she created one.

She’ll tell you she never got paid as much as the men she worked with, but she’s stayed true to herself in an industry dominated by men.
