Owner & Creative Director of Bonne Vie Macarons
As writer by trade and a life-long lover of a good story, I graduated with my Masters in English & Literature from UL Lafayette in 2015, which lead to a variety of teaching opportunities throughout South Louisiana. After the birth of my daughter, Arya, I knew there needed to be something more out there, so I began baking in-home looking for some of the most challenging desserts I could find. Then I found the French macaron, and the rest was history!
Aside from the macaron, I have an incredible passion for photography, design, cocktails, and celebrations as a whole. Every detail of each client’s celebration is so important to me, and I take such pride in my work that each dessert is perfected. I love the experience that comes with all of our dessert pieces and the relationships I build through celebrating events with each of our clients.
