hi friends!

An update on the parlor...

I grew up on a dairy farm in Iowa, where I learned that flexibility is essential to happiness and where I began loving ice cream. During college, I learned to make ice cream and made plans to launch an ice cream parlor with a storefront in Ames, Iowa. 2020 came, and COVID changed my plans (and probably yours too!). So right now, ice cream production is on hold. I'm searching for new kitchen space and running the coolest innovation and entrepreneurship academy at Iowa State University.
And YOU can still connect with Bessie's Parlor by ordering my children's book, downloading my high school girls connection group guide...or if you have something else in mind, give me a holler:
