Owner/Pastry Chef

It’s hard to say when Molly decided to pursue pastries as a profession but she has always had a sweet tooth. As a Wauwatosa native, she spent many summer nights riding her bike to Swan Pharmacy to pick out treats at the counter!

During her undergrad years she had the opportunity to study abroad in Paris, it was during this time that Molly began contemplating a career in culinary arts. Soon after undergrad she attended culinary school in Minneapolis. Molly has worked in cafes and fine dining restaurants in the Midwest and on the West Coast. Molly returned to her Milwaukee roots in 2012 and was hired as the pastry chef for Braise Restaurant. In 2016 she took a position as Executive Pastry Chef for Black Shoe Hospitality. 

Molly began catering parties in her free time which led to the creation of Miss Molly's Pastries in 2012. The company has grown over the years to become a top wedding caterer in Southeastern Wisconsin. Molly opened Miss Molly's Cafe & Pastry Shop in 2017 just a few blocks from her childhood home. 

Cassie Hersh

Executive Chef

Cassie grew up in Germantown, WI. She spent much of her childhood at home cooking with the family. As a teenager, she worked at Culver's and took an interest in the hospitality industry. While deciding on a career path, she went to culinary camp at the Illinois Institute of Art- Chicago and knew that Culinary Arts was what she wanted to pursue. Cassie attended Waukesha County Technical College and graduated with an Associates Degree in Culinary Management in 2013. She was named WCTC's "Culinary Student of the Year" and WCTC's "Outstanding Student of the Year". While attending Culinary school, Cassie started at Bluemound Golf & Country Club in Wauwatosa as an intern. Over the course of 3 years, she worked her way from intern to Sous Chef. After two years as Sous Chef at Bluemound, Cassie joined Miss Molly's team as Executive Chef in 2017. Cassie is excited for this next season of life, and for the future of Miss Molly's.

Kira Walters

Cafe Manager

Kira grew up in Racine, Wisconsin. She received her BFA in Acting from The North Carolina School of the Arts, but she has always felt at home working in the cafe environment. After school she lived in New York City, managing a locally run and sustainably focused cafe while also exploring her acting career. She returned to the midwest in 2015 and was thrilled to discover Molly's and join the team. She continues to do local theater and works as a freelance writer on the side of managing the cafe's front of house. Thank goodness she' has a talent for juggling.
