Our Story

We met during stressful times.  Maura was in a physically abusive marriage, desperately trying to escape.  Darrell and their friend Sharon helped Maura get to safety and rebuild her life. 

Years later, we got married, and continue to live happily ever after.

We founded Empowered Bakery to share our excitement about the stress-reducing power of adaptogens and to help abuse victims become survivors, leading empowered lives. Empowered Bakery gives 5% of net profits to domestic violence non-profit agencies.
