Market Training Manager - Manna NW
Autumn was hired as an Assistant Manager with Manna at the Muskegon, MI cafe in 2011. During her time there she was the Training Specialist and also taught Planet Bread. She moved to Vancouver, WA in September 2015 due to her husband's career and quickly found a job at the local Panera Bread as a Catering Sales Coordinator. Autumn then decided to step back up to an Assistant Manager role. After she really excelled, she took on the Market Training Manager role when she returned from maternity leave in August 2017. One of Autumn favorite parts about working for Manna is their commitment to making the community a better place!
In Autumn's free time she enjoys spending time with her husband, Jeff, and new baby boy, Wesley. They love to go hiking and travel, exploring the beautiful landscape of the Pacific Northwest. She also loves to bake and even studied Culinary Arts and Food and Beverage Management at the Culinary Institute of Michigan.
