Barbara moved to Seattle in 2002 and fell in love with the Pacific Northwest. When she discovered the fresh berries she could pick in her own neighborhood, she decided it was time to learn how to make a pie.
She baked pies for St. Clouds Restaurant in Madrona for 9 years.
Many hundreds of pies later, she decided she could “spread the gospel” and teach people the joy of creating their own delicious and beautiful pies! Certified as a Cottage Baker, she sells pies baked in her own kitchen directly to the public.
Barbara practiced medicine in California for 18 years as an obstetrician-gynecologist before moving to Seattle.
She lives with her husband, Tom, who serves as public relations manager, taste tester and all-around Pie assistant!
