Meet the team
behind the counter and the croissants
" kindness, growth, and an authentic environment of teamwork"
Here at Freyja, we prioritize finding passionate people who are eager to learn new skills and dedicated to that journey. Most of the people we hire in fact were not already bakers or baristas. Instead, we believe in investing in people and fostering their learning in genuine and warm customer service for our community and excellent food products.
Across our team, we believe everyone is equal: tips are shared equally from the bakers to the baristas (we exclude ourselves, the owners).
We foster an environment we want people to look forward to turning up to each day — rooted in kindness, growth, and an authentic environment of teamwork.
My name is Emily. I was born and raised in Campbell River. When I first heard about Freyja, I was fascinated with the idea of having a new bakery/cafe in the heart of Campbell River. As someone who has always had a dream of living abroad and working in a cafe; when I saw their Barista job posting I thought - ‘If I can fulfill my dream and work in this beautiful Scandinavian coffee shop and stay in my hometown, why wouldn’t I take that opportunity?’
I love the ambience that has been created at Freyja and I can’t wait to see what the future brings.
Hi! My name is Cody and I’m one of the bakers at Freyja. I have recently moved back to Campbell River from New Westminster because I missed the nature, slower pace of life, and now I’m closer to my family. I started working at Freyja mid June in the interest of following a new career path. In the past, I’ve worked a diverse amount of jobs and yet to find one I like as much. I have learned different skills and techniques to further my love for baking. I also enjoy hearing all the positive feedback from the community and customers about how delicious we are.
I am a red seal baker, I have been baking professionally for 8 years and at home for most of my life. I made Campbell River my home a little over two years ago, but I've been on the island for 26 years. I love working at Freyja because of the fun, creative work environment and the early shifts allow me extra time with my family. I have three step kids and three fur babies (crazy cat lady, I'll admit).
Hey! I’m Ruby.
Born and raised on Quadra Island, I’ve had the privilege of being surrounded by nature my whole life. I started out as a wild child, refusing to wear shoes and running amok through the local woodlands. Nothing much has changed! I love exploring the forests and acquainting myself with the nearest mossy clearings whenever I get the chance.
I was lured into Freyja by the delicious smell of fresh croissants and it’s cozy atmosphere… and I haven’t left since.
I love bantering with our regulars, brewing yummy coffees, and the looks of absolute bliss our customers get when they bite into their first Freyja croissant. (It makes my day every time!)
I was born and raised here in Campbell River, it has always been a place I call home. My favourite part of Campbell River is living right on the ocean and being able to watch the sunrise and set over the beautiful mountains. When I first saw the ad posting for freyja I googled it and when it took me across the world to Hungary I thought it was a scam. I mean fancy delicious croissants in Campbell River, unlikely right? I love working in the cozy environment we have created at Freyja and being able to make people smile with beautiful latte art. I continue to learn new things every day and look forward to everything the future holds.
