Nealie Anthony, an Evansville native, started baking as a way to satisfy her boyfriend’s sweet tooth at only 16 years old. Baking soon became a passion for her, enough so that she moved to San Francisco to go to California Culinary Academy and become a pastry chef. She graduated in 2005 and moved back to the tri-state area with her husband to start a restaurant with her mother-in-law. Nealie is now a mother along side being the sole owner of the Granola Jar.
