Maria started out as a cashier while cross training at the café. It so happened that the manager at the café was also over the Bakery, which gave Maria the opportunity to help there as well. But Maria didn’t just help, she was curious, she asked a lot of questions, and she wanted to learn and grow as much as she could. She quickly mastered baking techniques while striving for perfection. "I wanted to make sure that I’m a bigger asset to the Bakery if I learned how to help out more."
So, when a Baker position became open at the club, she applied, and the rest is history. Now a Bakery Lead, Maria is passionate about what she does, she loves her bakery, and she’s highly competitive when it comes to competing for the most cake orders. "I got taught by the best and I feel like I can train the same way."
