Lisa Simmons's Profile and Contact Information
What do retail, cupcakes, and insurance all have in common? Loyalty to customer service if done right! Since the late 1980s, my careers have taught me how to build honest and giving relationships on and off the job. 23 years at Costco kickstarted my interest in helping others. While at Costco, I expanded my love for baking by taking on a steady weekend job making cupcakes for friends. Wanting more, I made the huge decision to leave retail and opened my own little cupcake shop in downtown Wenatchee. Baking transformed fast from simply a hobby to a career. I went to open another location in Leavenworth shortly after. From 2016-2017, I honed my leadership and people skills by supporting my employees and celebrating with my clients, whether it be for a birthday party, event, wedding, or simply as a weekend treat to satisfy their sweet tooth. After selling my business in 2018 to a friend who continues to make delicious product, I moved on to the world of insurance. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, baking, golf, and gardening (but not weeding!). Movies are also a hobby of mine—I know all the words to Christmas Vacation. All in all, I aim to make others’ day better by listening to them, talking to them, and just being present.
