We had the good fortune of connecting with Sheronda Plumber and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Sheronda, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
I feel like taking risk is very important when starting a business. It’s what makes you become better. In the beginning I wanted everything to be perfect. But then I realize that taking risk is the only thing that would help me grow and learn from my mistakes

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I worked at a grocery store for about 6 years as the bookkeeper for the business center. At this point in my life I was lost and didn’t really know what I was going to do with my career. While I was working in the bookkeeping office something unfortunate happen which made me transfer to the bakery. Everyday I was there I would count down the days until it was time for me to go back to the business center. One day a lady came to pick up a cake and all of our cake decorators were gone. I was the only one there to help her. So I made her order and it came out amazing! My manager seen my work and suggested I go to cake decorating school. From there I went to cake school then eventually went to culinary school where I received my Associate in Baking and Pastry.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Houston is such a big city with a lot of cool places and things to do.ni like to go around to different restaurants to try out their desserts. One of my favorite morning bakeries is Tout Suite. They have a great atmosphere and amazing pastries.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to thank my family for being so supportive. Being a single mom is very hard in this industry. Working the long hour and barley seeing my daughter some days can really start to get to you. But looking into her eyes gives me so much motivation to be better every day. Everything I do is for her!
