Leadership in Food Safety:

The Founder

The team at Dine Assured knows how to comply with FDA Food Code standards,
your state health inspections and food safety needs from every angle.

Employed as a Certified Food Safety Environmentalist, the Founder of Dine
Assured, Sherri Charek, has inspected more than 2500 restaurants, provided
multiple FDA Food Code Seminars and developed an interactive Certified Food
Safety Protection Manager’s Program.

Dine Assured began in 2006 as an answer to many requests for a simple
understanding of new food code mandates in various states. As one of Georgia's
leading environmental health experts, Ms. Charek has over ten years experience as a food safety training professional. She has personally trained and certified over 2000 food service personnel. Although the brains behind the Dine Assured concept has a Masters of Health Professions, she credits her experience working for the Georgia Environmental System for giving her the hands-on skills to apply national food code safety.

Dine Assured is unique because we teach you the rules of food code safety and show you how to apply the rules from years of environmental safety expertise.

Dine Assured is “Everything Food Safety”! Our goal is to assist our clients in scoring their highest possible inspection score as a result of preventing all food borne illness conditions in their establishment, and ultimately increase client revenues due to State and local compliance.

Our Microbiologist:

We are excited that Mary Ann Fair has joined our research and educational staff at Dine Assured to ensure our commitment to “Everything Food Safety” for clients and the public which we serve. She is highly regarded in the food health industry. Not only does she have a lifetime of experience working with large government agencies such as the CDC, USDA and FDA, Mary’s work relating to foodborne and other diseases has appeared in various peer-reviewed scientific journals.

Always on the cutting edge of foodborne illness research and disease control, Ms. Fair was part of the original team who began PulseNet USA, which is the national molecular subtyping network for foodborne disease surveillance. She helped develop Pulsed-Field Gel Electrophoresis (PFGE) training workshops and taught laboratory personnel from over 65 US public health laboratories. Today, the USDA and the FDA are members of PulseNet which is now an international network coordinated by the CDC.

As a microbiologist for the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta for over 35 years, she has extensive research experience in pathogenic bacteria including Streptococcus, Neisseria, Legionella, Bacillus, Corynebacterium, Mycobacterium, Listeria, Clostridium, Campylobacter, Helicobacter, Escherichia, Salmonella, Shigella and Vibrio.

Ms. Fair is a seasoned, international educator. She has trained personnel from public health laboratories around the world including: Canada, Latin America, the Caribbean, Asia, Europe, Africa and Egypt. As an accomplished speaker, she has presented lectures and poster sessions at the annual meetings of the American Society of Microbiology (ASM).
