You might call this Lancaster resident a serial entrepreneur. First she started Bliss bakery. Then she started a family. And this December her Christmas tree business starts selling trees in Lititz. We’re talking about Shanelle Lee (along with her husband Kris, of course).

(We should also give a shout-out that she’s also a graduate of Pennsylvania College of Art & Design, one of our current sponsors. Check out their range of continuing education classes for adults, pre-college, and youth.)

With daughter Harper in hand, she chats it up with us about mommyhood, the life of a professional baker (including her knack for dreaming up goodies like chocolate chip cookie dough cheese cake), and why raising 8,000 Christmas trees has turned out to be harder than she expected.

Be sure to check out the Bliss website and Facebook page.
