Connecticut native Jericha Strickland had plans to go to law school. But when working in a restaurant while in college, the cooking bug bit. She attended the New England Culinary Institute and then moved to Boston for her final 900-hour internship at The Butcher Shop, a wine bar and full-service butcher shop created by Barbara Lynch. Jericha thought she was pursuing a career in management. But when a butcher position became available, that was something she always wanted to do. She's learning more and more every day and considers butchering an adventure.
