Chef, Tyson Foods Culinary Team
Chef Alexa McKay


Alexa grew up in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area and proudly claims TexMex as her heritage cuisine. She fell in love with cooking as a young girl. By the time she ended high school, she knew food was her passion and she wanted to "run away to New York and go to culinary school.”

As a member of our Culinary team, Alexa uses her food science and culinary experience to help create concepts for new products. She’ll work on the products from initial concepting and development all the way through production scale-up.

Alexa earned an associate degree in culinary arts from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, and a Bachelor of Science in culinology, a blend of food science and culinary arts, from the University of Nebraska in Lincoln. She earned a Master of Science in food, nutrition and culinary science from Clemson University. She's currently pursuing her certification to become a Research Chefs Association (RCA) certified research chef.
