Kristin Weldon Peri, a 1998 Widener management alumna who graduated from Widener Law in 2001, will appear on the third season of the Food Network’s pastry chef competition show Sweet Genius.
The Delaware County Daily Times reported that Peri spent several years as a trial attorney before she opted for a career in cake design, starting the company Divine Cakes.
“When I decided to do this, there were some people who couldn’t understand moving from practicing law to this business, but my family and friends didn’t blink an eye,” she told the newspaper. The show featuring Peri starts at 10 p.m. EST Thursday, January 17.
