How long have you been in the business?  Since my kids started school! My daughters still remember that I packed their lunches with a picture or story on a paper bag. I enjoyed the weekly challenge for new ideas, and they looked forward to lunch. I organized school fundraisers, served as PTA president, and worked every level of retail including budgets, financials, and store management. Along with my daughter, in 2011 I took my people and management skills and combined them with my love of design to start Christy’s Kitchen.

What do you love about the business?  The bakery allowed me to get back to something I really love -- designing. I enjoy working with a client to develop a theme that expresses their ideas. For me, the highlight is seeing their reaction when we reveal what we created.

What do you bring to the team?  Over time I have seen a change to events that showcase a style and tell a story, only to see opportunities for more complete, personalized decor. My goal is to fill those gaps, and like with my daughter’s lunch bags, add the little details that would've taken it to a whole new level.
