I’m the girl behind the cookies…
Originally from the small town of Pietermaritzburg, South Africa I’m currently living in the beautiful city of New York. I have moved country five times in the past 10 years. I love to travel but hate to fly!
Many moons ago I studied Abnormal Human NeuroPsychology, Fine Art and Illustration with an intention to focus on art therapy. I have spent many years working in HR on mental health issues, talent development and coaching. Almost by accident one day I started using food in therapy and moved my artistic talents over to creating cookies, cakes and other baked goods.
I don't know where my love of baking came from. There's no deep history of bakers within my family and come to think of it up until a few years ago I was actually considered a terrible cook. TERRIBLE! (ask my ex about 'lemon chicken') *hopefully that's not why we divorced *
However when someone recently told me there is more in baking to just making pretty tasting food the reason resonated with me as to why I love what I do. Baking is a productive form of self-expression and communication and at the heart of baking for others -the very act of giving and sharing love. It’s my way of connecting with people, sharing celebrations, creating memories and hopefully bringing joy to those who eat them.
I’m open to ideas, never say no and the crazier your request the more excited I get!
