My Story

Originally from Columbus, Ohio I always knew that I would want to move back here to raise my family.  The journey it took to return with a family is a memorable one!  

After graduating from The Ohio State University with a BFA in Glass Blowing I moved to NYC where I began teaching and emerging myself in the glass community.  Once I became pregnant with my son I knew I had to find a safer and kid friendly environment.  What's better than a bakery?!

This is when I opened Sweet and Shiny in Bushwick Brooklyn.  The bakery was the perfect outlet for my creativity.  I specialized in 3D sculpted cakes; each cake was like an art project to me, and I loved it!  

Once we found out that I was pregnant with our daughter, this was a tremendous change of focus for me.  I realized that I was missing my son growing up in his toddler years because I was at the shop day in and day out.  I decided to change for my daughter and be more present in both of my childrens' lives. 

The big move to Ohio at 7 months pregnant has been the best decision thus far for my family.  I am able to be present and share a wholesome life.  Since settling down and developing relationships with the community, word got out that I once had a shop.  Now is the beginning of another exciting journey of Sweet and Shiny.
