"Mentorships are a great way to give and get back. My extensive experience running a business coud and should be able to benefit as may people as possible. My employees and customers receive the intangible dividends of this experience all the time so a mentorship brings others into the fold. I have mentored before in more casual arrangements and know that it is a great way for me to give back. I will never forget the people who have and continue to help me along my journey. Best of all, a mentor relationship will make me a better business owner and help me grow as a leader. I firmly believe that we all have something to learn and we all have something to teach. I want as many opportunities as possible to do both."

Dawn Casale is the founder and co-owner of One Girl Cookies. Drawing inspiration from her family, she and her husband have been bringing European artisanal desserts and great coffee to Brooklyn for over a decade!
“Lots of time in my grandmother’s kitchen in Queens taught me the significance of food, the happiness it brought, and the essential elements of quality and care that went into its preparation. Years working in high end retail taught me the importance of aesthetic and the joy of indulgence. The combination of these experiences laid the foundation for One Girl Cookies.”
