About Me

 I founded Mrs. Brake’s Spices because of my love of children and, more broadly, a love of community. As an owner of a children’s daycare, I wanted the children to enjoy quality foods, so I eliminated processed flavorings and started making my own blends. The kids loved the new flavors – for example, my blends of BBQ sauce and Ranch dressing encouraged them to try a variety of new foods! That’s when I fell in love with creating new flavors that brighten and enhance meals to invite healthy choices.


 I then began traveling broadly to find fresh spices and bulk goods, researched and experimented with multitudes of spices, flavorings and dried foods, ultimately creating the variety of offerings you can now find in the store. In April 2017 I closed the day care operation and began Mrs. Brake’s Spices.


 I love serving the people in the community, and continue searching for unique and interesting products, discovering new blends, creating new recipes, and offering personal experiences through workshops and education.


I am committed to helping you Flavor ANY Food, Anywhere, Anytime!
