About Us

Anna McCarty Carrier grew up in Morgantown and graduated from University High School. She went on to earn her Bachelor’s Degree from WVU in Exercise Physiology and graduated a few years later with an MBA and a JD. While at WVU, she was on the Student Government Association Board of Governors, a member of the Pi Beta Phi sorority, and very active as a volunteer in the Morgantown community. She is married to Dan Carrier, who is the Dentist at the Monongalia County Health Department, and they have two children (Daniel and Lena).

Janet Nelson Williams also grew up in Morgantown but on the other side of town–she’s a Mohigan. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree from WVU in Political Science. She is married to Jacques R. Williams, who is a partner in the law firm of Hamstead, Williams & Shook. She has three children (Stephanie, Maureen, and John) and three grandchildren (Luke, Cecelia, and John). When she’s not baking cupcakes, she can be found at Hamstead, Williams & Shook working as a paralegal. Which brings us to where Anna and Janet met….

Anna came to work at Hamstead, Williams & Shook in 2007, and she and Janet became fast friends. They share many passions, including a love of good food and wine, cooking and baking and a creative bent that convinces them that they can fashion anything out of sugar or fondant and perch it on the perfect cupcake! When Anna decided to pursue other business ventures outside the law firm, they knew they had to find a way to keep working together …and so The Cupcakerie was born!
