Worker-owner since: November 2008

I grew up in Cabot, Vermont (yes, where the cheese is from).  I started baking at age 7, because I realized that to eat as much pie as I wanted, I better figure out how to make the stuff.  Later, I learned how to make bread on a large scale when I cooked for 3 seasons at Indian Brook, one of the Farm and Wilderness summer camps in Plymouth, VT.  I graduated from Alfred University with a Fine Arts degree in 2003, and then moved back to the Rochester area for love in 2008.  I initially joined the Small World crew as the gluten free bread inventor, then branched out into all aspects of baked goodness. I am also the head farmer and owner of Mud Creek Farm CSA and in the past have worked at Peacework Farm.
