Shiri Reuveni-Ullrich, founder of Rising Above Bakery in Bergen County, New Jersey

Published on: 26 January 2022

As a speech therapist, Shiri Reuveni-Ullrich worked with youth and young adults who often found it difficult to connect with others.  When she discovered that baking could be the thing that brought them closer together and brought them great joy, she shifted gears and started Rising Above Bakery.  Now their cottage bakery is looking for a larger, more permanent home.

In this episode, Mark and Shiri discuss the ways baking can be therapeutic as well as nourishing, making the leap from therapist to bakery founder and how she plans to expand into a brick and mortar bakery.
