A little too much chocolate is just about right!
Born and raised in the United States, I moved to Edmonton in 1997 where I enjoyed a career in fine wine. In 2002 I swapped my wine glasses for chocolate and managed the three Chocolates by Bernard Callebaut stores. Chocolate was a great fit for me, so much so that in 2011 I moved to Red Deer to purchase my own store. I love Red Deer and am grateful for the opportunities it has given me as a businesswoman and community builder. I am very fortunate to work alongside a team of equally enthusiastic chocolate lovers. We may be a small team, but we’re hugely enthusiastic about what we do and are eager to help you with all things chocolate. My favourite chocolate is Peanut Butter & Jelly!
Kayla has been with us since 2011 and is our Store Manager. Her two main responsibilities in this role are to keep me in line and act as the "functioning party of my brain". Lucky for us, she does a great job at both! Of all her favourite chocolates, Pistachio is at the top of her list!
Jo comes from a long line of chocolate lovers in her family. In fact, some say she has chocolate running through her veins! Jo has been with us since 2013 and her favourite chocolates are Apricot Lavender and Toffee...of course she couldn't choose just one!
Leanne was an enthusiastic guest at one of our Truffle Making Parties in the Spring of 2014. She learned all about our chocolate, had a blast making her own truffles and a few months later she joined our team! Now that she has tried all of our chocolates, Leanne has declared Sea Salt Caramel as her favourite.
Cassie was the first person I interviewed and the first person I hired when I bought the store in 2011. She grew up enjoying our chocolates as a child so she feels right at home now that she's on the other side of the counter. She excels at making chocolate lovers feel at home at our store and her favourite chocolate is Cinnamon Ginger.
