Trish   Trish has followed Kayak Cookies since the early days at farmers markets. Busy with kids, she thought maybe someday she could join the team. And so it’s come to be! She joined us in time for the holidays and has spent her time in our packaging department where she quickly learned just how hand assembled our cookies are.  A great addition with a sweet smile and willing spirit.  Her commitment to her family is number one and well supported by her yoga practice and dog walks with Willie.

Terri   Terri is the “mom” in the bakery. She’s the boss you want to have. With a light hearted spirit and infectious laugh, Terri works alongside her staff in the kitchen, where her heart is. When you walk in the bakery you can often find her at the oven, shaping, salt-sprinkling, and baking. After all these years, she still loves each and every flavor, though her first love is the Oatmeal Raisin. Outside of the bakery, Terri spends most of her time outdoors with her two yellow labs, Clementine and Daisy, or planning her next trip to France.
