Front of House Team
We can only grow with a strong foundation. That strength comes from our hard working staff. We proudly introduce our Front of House Team.
Kerra is a Poconos native. She's been a part of the Hospitality Industry since she was sixteen, including her tenure as a manager at a local grocery store. She received an associate degree in business management in 2018. Kerra has been with Frogtown since 2016. She moved from position to position and learned the intricacies of the restaurant industry through valuable hands-on training. In 2018, she was promoted to General Manager due to her dedication, hard work, drive and skill set. She works closely with Eric Noone, owner, to help create a Wine Spectator award-winning wine selection. When she's not at the Chophouse, Kerra likes to spend time with her husband Chris, daughter Ariella and their fur baby Vixen, who's spoiled rotten.
She's also been known to enjoy a Margarita once in a while.
Mandy is a Poconos native, growing up in nearby Pleasant Valley. She started her professional career as a paralegal, but something was missing. Mandy's passion for cooking and creating pushed her to leap into the culinary field at The Frogtown Inn, formally in Canadensis, in 2015. She was a chef in the 6 Acres restaurant and quickly moved up the ranks within the kitchen to Sous Chef under Chef-to-Cuisine Bryan Wallace. Her time spent in a restaurant kitchen taught her valuable lessons in multi-tasking, patience and timing. Her extensive knowledge of the back-of-house helped transition her into a powerhouse front-of-house staff member. She moved into the position of server and bartender with us. Over the years, Mandy has been a mainstay in our ranks (except for a time or two leaving to pursue her previous love of law). Her creativity, attention to detail, outgoing personality and supreme problem-solving skills make her the perfect fit for our management team. When she's not managing or bartending at the Chophouse, she moonlights as a realtor--
looking to buy or sell?
A restaurant is only as good as its cuisine. A lot of the hard work is being done behind the scenes in our kitchen.
We proudly introduce our Kitchen Team:
Julius is a Poconos transplant by way of Allentown. Moving to the Poconos in his youth, he graduated from Pocono Mountain West. Julius' culinary journey started in his teenage years, where he learned through hands-on experience. His dedication to the art of cooking and passion for creating comforting and delicious food has landed him a top spot on Frogtown's culinary team. He thanks his family, wife Rachel, and friends for their love and support. You might catch him throwing the pigskin when he's not working on his culinary craft.
Cheryle was born in Victoria, Texas and found herself moving to the Poconos after high school. Although she fell in love with baking at the age of nine, she tried her hand at many different occupations (including modeling and acting). No matter what she tried, she couldn't extinguish her passion for desserts. She's been baking professionally for the past 15 years; 6 of which has been with us. Her favorite dessert is her dark chocolate sea-salt caramel torte. When she's not in the kitchen or on the floor as one of our servers, she loves spending time with her daughter who makes life that much sweeter.
