About Chief Cookie Officer Nancy Major


Nancy Major earned the title Chief Cookie Officer in the spring of 2020, when she spearheaded the launch of Color My Cookie. Nancy and Chef Sam created Color My Cookie in the wake of Covid-19 and subsequent shelter-in-place orders, which devastated their family business, Tart Bakery. 

Under her leadership between 2016 and 2020, Tart Bakery was awarded Top Choice’s Best Bakery Dallas Award (2018, 2019, 2020) and was recognized in numerous publications including Park Cities People, DFW Child, Brides of North Texas, and Modern Luxury Weddings Dallas. ​

Prior to leading Tart Bakery and Color My Cookie, Nancy worked in nonprofit development, where she gained valuable experience in sales, marketing, leadership, public speaking, and change management. 

Nancy received her undergraduate degree at Duke University and holds a J.D. from Brigham Young University Law School. She and Chef Sam live in East Dallas with their four children: Catherine, Peter, Elisabeth, and Andrew.
