She started her career as a graduate (salutatorian) of Carbon Career & Technical Institute in the Culinary Arts field, studied Pastry Arts at The Restaurant School of Walnut Hill College and finished her studies at Lehigh Carbon Community College for Hospitality and Resort Management.

Her husband and business partner, Matthew, handles the behind-the-scenes of the business; with a degree in business management and an extensive career in retail, he supports Connie by handling the clerical end of Wild & Free Bakery.
