MEET THE MANAGING DIRECTOR
As a teenager, Elena worked alongside her sister Concetta at their family's Italian bakeshop. Although Elena would often assist the bakers when needed, she spent most of her time serving clients, which she loved. After graduating from college, a brief career in healthcare, and staying at home with her two children for 9 years, the timing was right to join Concetta in her venture as managing director and baking assistant.
Elena believes that cakes and desserts are very personal and should reflect the individual. That's why she enjoys interacting and communicating with clients. Getting to know clients and their stories is one of her favorite aspects of the business. Elena and Concetta work with the client from the very beginning until the very end. From meeting at the consultation, to creating design, baking, delivery and set up, the client can rest assured that they will get the very best personal service and attention with the Layered team.
