I’ve always known that in order to achieve greatness you have to put a lot of work and be determined to get there.

I’d like to believe that I was asked to join Petals for my ability to translate ideas into action. To be honest, I’m not the most creative person, and I hate being in the spotlight. Instead, I shine in the background. I’m the girl figuring out how to turn an “Inspo” pic into reality. In other words, if Amy is the lead actress, I’m her supporting actor. Read more>>

I worked as a curator for an art space in Lowell for a few years, and I really loved the energy of being around other artists. I loved being able to see the exhibition process from beginning to end, and how excited artists would be to show and talk about their work. Soon after that, I fell into teaching. I’ve been a public school art teacher for the last twelve years, and I absolutely love it. Read more>>

I started our making special order pies and hosting brunches at a local microbrewery. I had learned to bake with my grandmother and our family crust recipe helped us launch things like our Bacon Apple Pie. By June of this year, we had started making pretzels under Fat Boyfriend Bakery and realized that there was a major need for craft snacks in this industry. Thus, our plan started to crystallize. Read more>>

Brianna Cincotta, Heather Normandie, and Andrea McCue

It all started with Heather approaching Andrea and telling her that we wanted to discuss the possibility of the three of us going out on our own. We actually went out to dinner at Tulip, which is right next door to our salon now! We didn’t even know that Salons by JC was here at the time. We wanted to discuss the process of opening a salon and Andrea has had more experience working at different locations. Read more>>

I ended up taking the job at the cutest bakery in a small town in MA and worked there for about a year. In that year, I learned so much, my technique improved, my confidence grew, and it was amazing to be able to go to work each day and be creative and work with these wonderful people, and do something I truly enjoyed. Fast forward a bit and my husband, daughter and I moved to Merrimack, NH, I decided, after much encouragement from my family, to advertise my cakes to the public. Read more>>
