About the ‘Pie Lady’

Diana Shockley owns I Love Pie Bakeshop located in Carmichael CA and has pop-ups at farmers markets in the greater Sacramento Area.  That’s me. There’s no need to write this piece in third person because obviously owners write their own bios – lets be real here.  🙂

I’ve always loved baking and have been doing it pretty much my entire adult life. I grew up seeing my mother bake and I learned from her to never take shortcuts.  So anyway, yea I don’t take shortcuts. Baking pies is an art and each pie I make is formed carefully with love.  I’m not crazy but I sometimes talk to my pies and compliment them. I tell them how pretty they are and how good they smell.

My pie business turned 3 this March 2021 and I decided to make this my life. I used to work as a project manager for a large organization but I quit to focus on growing my pie business because I love pie so much. 

My biggest supporters and cheerleaders are my husband Justin and my daughters Gwen & Katelyn (who by the way came up with the business name and logo because she’s my little genius)

I’m looking forward to more exciting stuff in this adventure! The silver lining for me turns out is a pie tin. <3
