After completing her education and training in Le Cordon Bleu in San Francisco and Santa Rosa Junior College, Ashley Ruth Garrigus worked many jobs learning different branches of pastry. The experience led her to realize that she would like to open her bakery. Having worked in the food industry of Sonoma County as a baker for over ten years, Ashley Ruth Garrigus learned the importance of offering the community a delightful pastry experience by providing quality ingredients and baked-from-scratch perfection.
She named her cakes after famous women throughout history to inspire her daughters and other girls to be leaders and pave positive pathways in society. She also hopes to empower and promote the local community through her business, Wild Hope Bakery.
