Her experience working with a true farm-to-table restaurant began in 2014 when she joined Larks Restaurant at the Inn at the Commons in Medford, Oregon.

Leading the Aerlume kitchen brings Trujillo close to the water she loves and presents an opportunity for her to work hand-in-hand with local producers, including Fall City Farms.
