About Me

Are you living YOUR life yet? Are you living true to your passion….true to your core? Do you wake up so grateful for your day that you simply cannot wait to get it started. I believe that to thrive in today’s world, we must bring our inner passion to the table. You know what I’m talking about… I’m here to shake you up!!

I’m the co-founder and co-owner of Kelly’s Bake Shoppe with my daughter, Erinn Weatherbie. 

Kelly’s Bake Shoppe evolved from a deep passion for creating and developing healthy food and new recipes, with the idea and hope of changing people’s lives through delicious meals and solid nutrition. Over the last couple of decades, we’ve really become a more unhealthy society due to much of the foods we eat. I couldn’t sit back and watch it any longer. I also had conquered some of my own personal health issues and watched my life THRIVE when I changed to a whole food, plant-based diet. I wanted to share my knowledge and experience with everyone; I still do.

In 2010, when our original restaurant, Kindfood, opened it’s doors in downtown Burlington, I noticed the increased demand for healthy and nutritious baked goods. I started creating new recipes for months on end – from the wee hours of the morning in my tiny, kitchen in Kindfood. What ended up coming out of there was pure magic to many. The proverbial floodgates opened and what came through them were people begging for more. I was blown away by the demand and I realized we were onto to something very different. Kelly’s Bake Shoppe was born.

In December 2012, we opened Kelly’s Bake Shoppe in downtown Burlington. A 100% organic, gluten-free, dairy free, egg-free, peanut-free and vegan bakery. What was once taboo and off-limits to many people due to health concerns and allergy-related restrictive diets, they could now indulge in and enjoy. Kelly’s Bake Shoppe was an instant success.

I’m so passionate about my life and where it has taken me so far and now to be able to create a life that continually gives back to others. This is a gift to me. This is what fuels me to do more.

You ARE what you eat and I’m here to prove to you that you can be the best you ever dreamt of being. Good food needs to be #1 in your life and the rest will fall into place. I promise.
