Inspired by her family of food lovers and a passion for art, Lena wanted to combine her lifelong interests. So she enrolled in the Baking and Pastry Arts program at Schoolcraft College, graduating in 2013. Lena’s natural talent caught the eye of her instructor, master pastry chef Joseph Decker, to whom she served as sous chef during her final year of school, a position she held until she came to Selden. Lena’s favorite activities include smiling, drawing, smiling more, and dancing – which she does pretty much everywhere, especially the pastry kitchen.
