Born and raised in Nairobi, Kariuki started working as a private chef at the club in 2021 following a recommendation by former captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

She revealed that she met Aubameyang at a party, and he was impressed with her cooking skills.

"I met Auba and asked him whether there were any vacancies at Arsenal. To my surprise, he said I could be his chef, and I was like, "What?" and that's where I got my Job. He liked the pilau I did."
