I'm a Pastry Chef and I own a coffee shop on the Oregon coast. I am married to a wonderful guy...he's a BBQ pit master and a retired Police Chief. We have 6 children between us and 10 beautiful grand children. We are foodies both by trade and hobby. Baking is my passion and I am blessed to be able to make it my career as well. I am a graduate of Oregon Coast Culinary Institute in 2006...and before that I was an elementary school teacher, having taught Kindergarten and first grades. I was born and raised in Clarkston, Wa....a wonderful place to grown up. I miss it a lot. I enjoy making people happy through food.
