Born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee, I have always been a Southern Girl at heart and a whiz in the kitchen. After my move to Birmingham, Alabama, I felt like I needed to bring my passion for baking and cookie decorating to this growing city. My career started in corporate America, but I have always felt that my calling was to start a bakery that specialized in cookies for every occasion. The Southern Cookie Co. is my attempt to stop making excuses and start showing the world what I can do.
