In celebration of National Women's Small Business Month, Working Women of Tampa Bay is launching a new series called Success Stories sponsored by First Home Bank. Guests will enjoy light bites, desserts, wine and a chance to hear the story behind the Leslie Ann Ciccone's successful entrepreneurial journey with her award-winning dessert shop, (swah-rey) in Downtown St. Pete.

Leslie Ann Ciccone has been an Air Traffic Controller since she was 18 years old, first in the US Navy and then as in the FAA. While she was an air traffic controller in New York, she attended culinary school in New York City. 16 years later, she opened (swah-rey) a dessert bar, in St. Petersburg. She now has 2 locations with #3 and #4 under construction. Leslie Ann was recently chosen as a Tory Burch Fellow (one of only 50 in the country and the only one from Florida). Her goal is 10 locations in the next few years.

Bold in strategy, yet prudent in operations, First Home Bank is redefining what is possible for a community bank. A Top 6 SBA Lender in the country with five, soon to be six full-service banking centers in Tampa Bay and Sarasota and a team of more than 100 residential mortgage originators across the nation, First Home Bank has been the best performing bank in Florida for three years running. But behind this exceptional performance, it is the people and their stories that make First Home Bank unique.
