Korir Russell

Executive Chef

Korir grew up in San Fernando Valley, but never lost the Midwest country girl. She moved back to Columbus, Ohio in 1997 and wanted to bring artistry to a professional career. She worked in professional kitchens, from hotels to fine dining and casual dining, and came to Local Matters searching for the wings of freedom to pursue her passions of cooking, education and community.

Korir and her partner of six years, Monte Patton, are raising children together in Columbus. Korir is a Casa volunteer, helping children in the Franklin County court system, and enjoys cooking homemade meals, listening to podcasts like Snap judgment, Serial and Embedded, gardening and exploring the aquarium world.
