Miguel Zavaleta

Dining Services Manager

My name is Miguel Zavaleta, and I have worked at Heritage House since 2006. I was born and raised here in Santa Barbara, and graduated from Santa Barbara High. I've been married to my wife, Alejandra (Ale) for almost 4 years now, and we met working together here in the kitchen. Together we have wonderful 2 children and a dog named Max. Our son Ryan will be 5 in April, and our daughter Emily turns 2 in July. Outside of work I enjoy ocean fishing, barbequing, and collecting sneakers. My son and I love to take care of our home aquarium of exotic Central American fish and Ryan is in charge of picking out new additions to the tank to grow our collection. My favorite hobby is cooking. I especially love to cook Italian food and I look forward to introducing Heritage House to some of my favorite recipes.
