I have been in Sales and Marketing most of my career. I took a few breaks from the corporate grind and owned both a café and catering business, but that was so long ago you might say it was in a past life. After selling my business in 1995 I returned to a career in financial services sales. Most recently, I was the Advanced Life / Estate Planning Northern California Regional Sales Specialist for CITI Smith Barney. When yet another merger was imminent, I took stock of my life options and decided to go to Le Cordon Bleu and became a Certified Pastry Chef in 2011.

All my life I have had a dream that I envisioned in both my sleep and waking hours. A place where anyone would feel welcome, to serve fresh yummy food that I was proud of and to be surrounded with fun, hardworking associates who value the business and our customers as much as I did. Saucie’s is the realization of that dream.

One day I was sitting in the company of very dear friends when I heard that a space in Martinez that had previously been a bakery was available. From there the snowball of Saucie’s started rolling. Saucie’s has truly has been a culmination of great landlords, generous and supportive friends and family, local contractors who built out Saucie’s on time and at or under budget, a great community that has embraced us and customers that I am honored to call my friends.
