Top accomplishment this year:
Being recognized with my name displayed at Code 7 Cafe for baking pastries and making delicious desserts.

What’s the biggest challenge you’ve had to overcome?
Getting too comfortable in one place in baking and finding ways to challenge myself so that I can be great at everything versus being good at one thing.

What do you value most in a workplace?
I really love where I work because if I ever need anything—a repair, tools, ingredients—they’re on it. A happy baker means sweet treats for everyone.

What attracted you to the noncommercial foodservice segment?
I like to do things that make me stand out from the crowd, things that challenge me. I’m continually growing.
