Today we’d like to introduce you to Iisha Byas.
Hi Iisha, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
Mother of three (two are in college) – baking came easily and regularly (for both family and friends). While pregnant with my last child (now 13) I decided to go to culinary school (Art Institute of Los Angeles – Santa Monica) to get my 2nd degree in Baking and Patisserie. Once I started offering my desserts/baked goods online to family and friends – word of mouth did the rest and Sugar Rush by Iisha was born! My newest business breakoff is “Sugar Rush presents LOVE by Iisha” – still providing all the delicious desserts you need, but now we include meal prep, private catering and LOVE products!
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
I am a divorced mother of three – an only child, from a single, teenaged mother. I don’t know what an easy road is!
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I am a certified project manager who has been doing property management work for the past 20 years. From 2013-2019, I worked in Venice helping to house the chronically homeless and mentally challenged with an amazing non-profit organization (VCH). I’m most proud of the development of my children. I have (2) kids in college – my daughter is working on her master’s degree and my son is a junior in college. What sets me apart is that I have a ‘non-stop’ button that is ALWAYS ENGAGED!
What was your favorite childhood memory?
My favorite childhood memories involve having food fights with my mother, playing card games and solving puzzles with my mom. She also taught me how to roller skate and to love to be “outside”.
