Carolyn Haeler is the CEO of Mightylicious Bakery, a popular bakery known for its delicious and healthy treats. With a passion for baking and a commitment to quality ingredients, Carolyn has grown the business into a thriving brand with a loyal customer base. Under her leadership, Mightylicious has expanded its offerings to include vegan and gluten-free options, catering to a wider range of customers. Carolyn Haeler is a celiac sufferer who spent years seeking out gluten-free cookie brands. One busy holiday season, she was disappointed yet again when a gluten-free cookie crumbled entirely after one bite. That’s when she realized there had to be a better way, and as one smart cookie herself, she was determined to create a cookie that was gluten-free, healthy, and above all, irresistibly delicious. So, she left her lucrative job at Morgan Stanley and started the MIGHTYLICIOUS GF cookie company. Now available in 7 varieties at Walmart and many other retail venues (and AMAZON of course). They will knock your taste buds socks off! Kof-K kosher certified with dairy and vegan varieties available. (You wont believe they are gluten free.)Landon Mascareñaz and Doannie Tran – Authors of the book The Open System: Redesigning Education and Reigniting Democracy
