The business-savvy banker-turned-baker, Arleen Scavone, has been a self-starter since the very beginning. At the age of eight, Arleen learned her first lesson in business when she began selling Christmas greeting cards door-to-door. After discovering her niche, the young Arleen decided to continue setting a series of goals that she wanted to achieve, which carried her entrepreneurial drive to adulthood. Arleen supported her family and herself, and without a bachelor’s degree, became her family’s primary breadwinner by entering the banking industry. In 2008, when Arleen left her role as senior vice president with a major bank, she set her sights on another pursuit – her first love of baking.
