The story fits Emily‘s style. “I’ve always loved making food for others - and eating,” she laughs from her cozy bakery, her first permanent business home after a decade of B2B networking and shared kitchens. “I was always rushing out of.” Looking around, she says, “I want to spend time here even after the workday ends.”

A native Chicagoan, Emily grew up skiing in Wisconsin and Colorado. When powder days were not filling her childhood imagination, powdered sugar recipes were. “Owning a bakery is a childhood dream,” she says. “I was determined from very early on.” Though now a familiar figure in PC, Emily recalls not being so sure about Utah as a young skier. “But after my dad convinced us to take a vacation trip here, we were converts.”

Today, Emily’s spare moments are for the backcountry skiing she loves, her husband, her dog, and “good mountain people,” she says. “I’m also a fanatic for the NYT crossword puzzle, and yes, I am a legitimate Auntie Em! Four Three nephews and a niece.” 

Like many Chamber partners, Emily’s love for expanding the Park City vibe is part of her daily life. “The world can be a hard place,” she reflects. “I believe our sweet treats spread joy. If we can lift up the people around us just a little, maybe we can create greater change.”
