About Our Featured Artist: Maggie Simenc

Maggie Simenc is a 32 year old stage 2B HER2+ breast cancer survivor. She loves all things that involve baking and has been baking seriously since 2012. She’s done dozens of weddings, birthdays and events since then, but has slowed things down to focus on learning new baking skills. Maggie currently lives in Cleveland and is the Senior Regulatory Specialist at a food company. She’s the one who reviews food labels for accuracy and makes sure they meet government regulations. When she isn’t working or baking, she’s hiking/backpacking with her fiancé, Brandon, and her doggo, Sawyer. She loves true crime, watching GBBO, and traveling.
