Saydie grew up in a humble household in central Philippines. Her family owned a bakery, and watching her mother as a child instilled a hard-working, creative spark in her that she has never lost. Before coming to the US, she worked for 5 years in restaurants and hotels. Her first stint at Crystal Springs Resort saw her as a cook in the banquet department, she then asked for the opportunity to switch to pastry. She excelled in her department and her easy-going attitude and team-work mentality saw her move to Restaurant Latour one year ago. When she is not working she can be found at a metal band concert or baking at home.
