Tweety’s Sweeties, LLC
My love for baking came about as a hobby in 2014. I baked for fun and pure enjoyment for approximately three years as a self-taught baker. Experimenting with different types of cakes, edible arrangements, flavors, and decoration brought forth great excitement! Being able to express my passion for art and creativity has never been easier. With much encouragement from my husband, co-workers (who I used as guinea pigs for most of my creations :-), family and friends, Tweety's Sweeties, LLC was born on June 20, 2017. The name came about from my childhood nickname, Tweety, given to me by my mom and my mom's nickname, Sweets. I've always wanted to own a business. Never in a million years did I see a bakery as being that business. My ultimate goal for Tweety's is to operate on a full time basis with a food truck and store front. I know, with God, that can be made possible.
Tweety's is known for its unique/original creations by taking traditional favorites and putting our twist on them. We specialize in cupcakes, custom cakes, chocolate covered strawberries, fruit arrangements, banana pudding, cookies, cake pops, and MORE.
With endless inspiration and much drive the mission of Tweety's is to give our customers MORE than just a decadent treat, but an experience with every bite. To create a lasting relationship, friendship, and loyalty to all we encounter. To give your buds MORE than average.

Certified Integrative Nutrition Coach
I became interested in natural healing due to some health concerns in my early 20's. Over the years, my interest and knowledge increased in the health and wellness field. In March 2018, I learned that I had a heart condition. I decided to leave my corporate job to focus on my health. With much rest, clean eating, and other natural remedies, I was completely healed and able to stop taking medication. I decided not to return to the corporate world as I wanted to focus on helping others live a healthier life. In January 2019, I decided to pursue a certification in Integrative Nutrition Health Coaching. With this certification, I am able to utilize my personal experience and education to help others unlock their Kei2Health. My goal is to educate and provide healthy foods to anyone desiring to create a healthier lifestyle. My baked goods and foods are made with lots of love and all natural ingredients. Kei2Health LLC was established November 21, 2019.

Slack Optimal Solutions LLC
I started Slack Optimal Solutions because I saw one too many small business owners get lost in the weeds of day-to-day tasks and let marketing their business fall to the wayside. With over 15 years in Corporate America, I knew I could help small business leaders succeed by giving them their time back through social media management. I bring the tools, systems, and creativity necessary to build a solid and profitable social media presence or enhance your current efforts. But perhaps most importantly, I’m a creative problem solver, strategic thinker, and dedicated team member. Whatever your vision, I'm ready to bring it to life with energy, creativity, and professionalism.
