KERI STRONG - WIFE, MOM, ARTIST, HOME BAKER, LOVER OF COFFEE
I am the owner and operator of treat. Before I started my cookie journey, I was a professional makeup artist and instructor with a background in business management. After having my daughter in 2015, I decided to leave my full time job as a Master Makeup Artist Instructor in downtown Seattle to become a stay at home mom.
I've always loved to bake and I missed the artistic outlet I had in the makeup field. I was intrigued by the MANY decorating videos I was introduced to thanks to Social Media and 3am infant feedings. So, I decided to try cookie decorating and VOILA! A new passion was born.
I made my first "official" set of decorated cookies for my daughter's 1st in 2016 and haven't stopped since. In the past 5 years, I've baked/decorated over 10,000 cookies! Many as gifts and donations - and through those opportunities I have learned and failed and tested and developed which has led me to where I am today.
My favorite thing about being a cookier is the simple joy and delight that the cookies bring to people. I am so grateful that I get to do what I love!
