Her dream cam true in 2020 when she partnered with her former pediatrician, Monique Burke, to open Ice Queens. Food is Dasia’s love language and she can frequently be found cooking up unique creations for her friends and family.

When she returned, there was no going back to corporate life, so she ventured out to open something on her own. She had spent some time in Paris and decided that crepes would be her concept. Delicious and not that complicated, so that is where it all began.  She named it Sofi’s Crepes after her loyal pup of 11 years. Ann studied the art of crepes by visiting creperies all over Brittany and Paris. She took classes at La Cordon Blue cooking school in Paris. Sofi’s is now franchised with multiple locations throughout Maryland.When asked if she ever misses finance, she says she has never looked back.
