Mary Oster is the co-founder and co-owner of Life Raft Treats located in Charleston, SC. Holiday baking is Mary’s fondest childhood memory. It is the spark of inspiration that has driven her into the pastry industry 25 years later. The joy and delight on her loved one’s faces pushed her to leave a career in publishing and advertising. She changed courses to follow her childhood dream of bringing a blissful moment to members of her community delivered in treat form. After honing her skills working under her mentor, Cynthia Wong, their shared passion to be leaders in the industry drove them to form their current partnership, Life Raft Treats.
