from the heart
About Simona, the dessert designer
I first visited Calgary in the spring of 2018 to visit my sister. The Calgary Public Library became a memorable resource to me not only because it connected me to amazing English teachers, but to my future husband who I’m so grateful for the support!
In Romania, I had extensive experience in the financial sector as an insurance branch manager. In Canada, I tried my hand once again in insurance, but my gut instinct was to pursue another path. Throughout my 3 years in Canada, I always created pastries and often catered for events at the request of family and friends. Initially, I only considered baking as a passionate hobby or unattainable dream. But I constantly received strong suggestions from friends and even strangers to turn my successful dishes into an established business. This was the beginning of my journey as an entrepreneur and the realization of my dream into reality.
My desserts helped me integrate into the community. In a way, desserts helped provide me with a more accessible Calgary – before I realized it, Calgary had become my new place of home.
