ROBYN VANALSTYNE CRAWFORD
My name is Robyn and I am excited to be a member of the Sunflower team. I am an early morning baker, making many of the breads, rolls, croissant and muffins that are made fresh daily in the morning. I remember coming to the bakeshop as a young girl with my grandma to buy cookies and thinking these people have the best job ever! Now, after completing the Baking and Pastry Arts program at Algonquin College and being hired on as a full time baker, I have the best job ever!!

DONNA POOLE
My name is Donna Poole and I happily work as a full time as a server at the Sunflower Bake Shop.
Welcoming customers new and old to the shop, and helping them find that perfect treat, muffin, cake or bread that they are looking for is my top priority.
I love the food industry and cooking and baking are my passions, so working at the Sunflower is a perfect fit. The creativity flows in the bake shop and everyone works as a team. I look forward to learning new skills from the talented girls I work with!

NANCY BALL
I started my baking career at The Sunflower Bake Shop back in 2005 when the shop was at its original location on Herriott St., Perth. Bob the bread baker was my guide into the world of artisan bread making, and Tamara my tutor on everything else. The transition to the beautiful new location by the river on Gore St allowed the shop to expand, and I have enjoyed the company of many fellow bakers and cookie makers over the years. I see the sun rise every morning at work, and smell the wonderful home baked breads in the quiet shop as the day gradually comes alive with staff and the regular customers who make this business thrive.

ANNAKA BAILEY
