Meet Our Team



I have the best job in the bakeshop! I get to meet new and regular customers, and I am the one who gets all the compliments for the delicious baked goods and lunches that all the girls in the kitchen make.

My name is Lauren Larmon. I am 16 years old, currently in grade 11. The bakeshop is a wonderful friendly environment and a great place for me to learn new things and continue doing what I enjoy… BAKING!


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!!

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!

I was thrilled to join the team at Sunflower! As a person who has always enjoyed healthy, nutritious food I am glad to have the opportunity to work with Tamara and learn the artisan craft of bread making. Going to work is like hanging around in Gramma’s kitchen. The whole team is dedicated and is always looking for new ways to tempt your taste buds! I love working with my new friends and seeing all of our great customers, the familiar faces and all of the new faces!

Molly Grocock website bio picture

My name is Molly Grocock, I moved to Canada from the UK last year and started working full time at the Sunflower Bakeshop late November 2016. I have the amazing job of greeting all of our customers and helping them find the perfect snack, dessert or delicious cake. I have a passion for all kinds of food so the Sunflower is a perfect spot for me. I learn something new every day and the girls are just great to work with!

My name is Megan Donnelly, I am 15 years old, and this is my first job. I really enjoy working here because the goodies at the bakeshop are delicious! Working here is great because I have the support of all the staff to learn many skills that will help me in the future.


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.


My name is Robin Nash and I am working at the Sunflower for my first job! I had some experience with baking before, but working here I realized how much I love baking cookies, bars and all sorts of fun stuff. I am a student, and in my spare time I play soccer and some music. I am so excited to spend the rest of my year here!

My name is Annaka Bailey. I am currently a student in grade 9. Everyone who works at the bakeshop is so nice and it’s an incredible environment to work in. I love baking in my spare time so working here gives me a chance to learn more about something I love!
