Meet our third and final judge, Eric!
Eric is happily married and a father to two young children. He works for the Walgreens Company as an Assistant Manager. He graduated from Johnson and Wales University in 2001 (the previous Charleston campus) with a degree in Baking and Pastry Arts. He enjoys cooking and baking in his spare time and loves recreating recipes passed down from his family and ancestors. He is truly passionate about making sure his family can continue to enjoy these comfort foods for generations to come. He also LOVES him some cake and is looking forward to tasting those awesome cupcakes!
Meet another Judge: Kay Hyman, Director of Community Engagement from Charleston Animal Society.
Born and raised in North Charleston, Kay has deep roots in our community. Her career began in Marketing and Merchandising with the U.S. Navy, where she served for 13 years as a Visual Merchandising Specialist. Kay started with Charleston Animal Society as a volunteer over 22 years ago, where she quickly realized that a career in animal welfare was the right path for her. She became the shelter’s full time Volunteer/Special Events Coordinator in 1993. Kay has seen significant changes in the shelter over the years and is very proud of the status of No Kill Charleston. Kay’s role has changed over time, but as Director of Community Engagement, she has predominately been the voice and contact for media and has secured weekly television and radio appearances, as well as weekly spots for adoptable animals in print media. Kay is very active in her community, serving on her neighborhood council and organizing community initiatives. She has been married for over 30 years, and has a lovely teenage daughter, three cats, two dogs, and a bird. Attesting to Kay’s commitment to the community, she has been a multi-time winner of the title of Charleston’s Best Do-Gooder and was recently named one of 20 to Know in North Charleston Magazine.
