Mom and the KidsSome of my happiest childhood memories revolve around food, which has always been an expression of love in my family. After overcoming cancer 10 years ago, food became even more central to my life as I vowed to eat healthier.

I experimented with baked goods and worked with a chef to develop a new kind of scone that maximizes nutrition and flavor. As others tried the scones, it became apparent that scones are underrated, versatile and incredibly social. Seeing the potential to innovate with scones, I created Sconely.

Sconely is dedicated to my Mom, who loved to bake and build community around food. She always made sure everyone had something they could eat, and Sconely follows in her tradition.
