    Meet Karen Greaves!

    Karen Greaves is a seasoned hospitality worker, recognized not only for her extensive experience but also for her distinctive silver hair. Her career in the industry took off in 1990 at Burlington Golf and Country Club, where she dedicated 13 years to various roles, including fine dining, restaurant service, banquets, wedding coordination, and bartending.


    In a surprising turn of events, Karen transitioned to the automotive sales field in 2003, joining the renowned Saturn brand. Relocating to Angus, Ontario, for personal reasons, she continued her successful career in car sales, eventually finding a home at Mercedes Benz Barrie. However, fate had other plans for Karen, leading her to Chez Michel, where she became Milynne and Chef Winston’s very first employee.


    At Chez Michel, Karen excels as the go-to martini and cocktail expert, skillfully crafting intricate and delightful drinks for patrons. She takes immense pleasure in daily interactions with the restaurant’s customers, considering them the absolute best. Proudly serving Chef Winston’s beautiful, fresh, and consistently delicious cuisine, Karen finds great joy in working in a positive, employee-friendly environment that feels like family. She wholeheartedly embraces her role at Chez Michel and envisions retiring from this cherished position.


    Looking forward, Karen eagerly anticipates continuing to serve outstanding food in the restaurant’s charming and intimate setting. She attributes the welcoming atmosphere, fostered by Milynne and Winston, as a key factor in her deep satisfaction and unwavering commitment to her work. With her expertise, warm personality, and passion for hospitality, Karen Greaves is an invaluable asset to the Chez Michel team, ensuring that every guest has an exceptional dining experience.
