"I'm making myself more marketable," she says. Clawson came to Cafe 54 in March 2010 and started baking. She hadn't worked in three years. "My stamina was so bad," she recalls.
She worked only two days a week at first; her anxiety was bad. But she got more comfortable and eventually she did food service, made salads, worked the front of the house, and even redid the restaurant's inventory list.
She loves coming to work. "I've only dropped one plate," Clawson says, laughing.
