Texas native Derry began in the food industry when she was just 15 and competed in American Culinary Federation competitions to pay her way through the Art Institute of Houston. While completing her studies at AIH, Derry began working at Pesce Restaurant, where she advanced from garde manger to junior sous chef.

Shortly after graduating at the top of her class, Derry became the executive sous chef at Grotto Cucina Napolitano. Following a move to Dallas, she returned to the Art Institute as an instructor in the culinary school. In 2008, she became executive chef of Go Fish Ocean Club in Dallas.

Derry is best known as “fan favorite” on season 7 of Bravo’s Top Chef, where she made it to the final four. Her quiet confidence, warm Southern charm, and genuine natural ability in the kitchen made her a natural selection for season 8’s Top Chef All Stars, where she was again a finalist.
