July’s Sweet of the Month is Maggie! This cool Kansas City queen joined the Goldensquad this past May as a member of our hospitality team.
Maggie developed her love of food through her mother, who she swears makes the best spaghetti and meatballs. They loved to watch the Food Network together, and it was her mother who suggested she apply at Dolce Bakery in Kansas City.
She worked at Dolce Bakery, a fellow woman-owned business, for several years before moving to Lincoln this past spring with her boyfriend and two puppies. Maggie stays busy with their a 10-month-old Chocolate Lab, Gracie, and chasing their new 10-week-old Llewellin Setter named Lucy when she gets lost in cornfields (see below!).
Having never gone out of the country, Maggie would love to travel anywhere abroad – specifically Ireland, due to her family’s heritage.
Her interests include molecular biology, tacos, and watercolor painting. When Maggie was 10, her grandma got her interested in painting landscapes and other natural formations with water colors. Painting became Maggie’s way to unwind when she was earning degrees in Cell and Molecular Biology and Business at Rockhurst University.
Be sure to say ‘hi’ to Maggie next time you’re in! She’ll be happy to recommend some of her favorite sweet treats. We are so lucky to have her in our Goldenrod family!
