Sarah Green is a technical services representative for Dawn Foods, Inc. in Jackson, Michigan. She teaches and trains cake decorators at Walmart stores in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana. Sarah says a typical day involves going to stores and assessing the skill levels of decorators before she begins a training. A typical session covers anything from icing cakes or frosting cupcakes to borders, flowers, piping, and writing. While she makes her own schedule, she has to be on top of where she’s traveling and what she’ll be working on. “I want to make sure the decorators get the most out of the time [we have together],” she says.


Sarah, who in 2013 earned a Baking & Pastry Diploma from The Art Institute of Michigan, says that her education prepared her for a culinary arts career. Today, she enjoys seeing one of her students proudly show off a completed creation. “When they learn how to make the rose or when they are able to get nice square corners on the cake, that shows me that I am doing what needs to be done.”
