BEHIND
THE DOUGH.

BEHIND
THE DOUGH.

Before the Dible Dough dream came to life, I was a mom and caterer who loved to bake. Funny thing was, my cookie dough would disappear from the fridge before I could get it in the oven! Message received – the dough was the guilty pleasure my family and friends desired.

So I created less guilty (a.k.a. safer) versions of my recipes with no eggs or raw flour that were just as delicious as the originals. I stuck to simple, all-natural, preservative-free ingredients that made cookie dough that was good and good (well, mostly) for ya.

I believe we’re all doing the best we can and we owe it to ourselves and others to be kind. You don’t need a reason to treat yourself. You deserve it. Just because.

So stop, take a breath, and revel in your awesomeness. Choose joy where you find it.

OUR TEAM

 

Jolene Conway

Jolene Conway

Founder & CEO

What started as an obvious solution to my family and friend’s compulsive addiction to raw cookie dough has turned into our Dible Dough Cookie Dough Bar company. The concept started when I was the team mom in charge of the concession stands for our daughters’ athletic teams. Now it’s available in thousands of stores. I have loved growing this company from its humble beginnings, but it would not have been possible without the love and support of my husband, our 3 daughters, my best friend, Suzy, and the rest of my tribe. We’re a football family who loves to eat, drink, and spend time on the lake. Pretty simple.

Al Thomsen

Al Thomsen

Director of Operations

Former Chip n’ Dale XXL dancer and Jason Kelce stunt double, Al lives through a lens (wide angle) of process improvement and depth of flavor.  He is always searching for the best possible ingredients that exceed customer expectations at a reasonable price.  He enjoys teaching and training the next generation of what it means to be a participant in an emerging company and what it takes to separate the company from a sea of artificial flavors and power bars. His attention to detail can be annoying to the rest of us but has proven to be invaluable to Dible Dough. His favorite place to be is deep in the woods, where it is so quiet, the only noise he can detect is the ringing in his ears.

Jenn Bedell

Jenn Bedell

Creative & Marketing Director

Developing creative elements required for a brand to sing is where Jenn shines. Her creative mind can be seen fully in the detail found in Dible Dough’s brand. Jenn’s brand voice is as big as her heart and can be heard loudly on our website, packaging design and social media channels. She is a huge asset to the organization as a creative guru with a no-nonsense approach to business. When not dreaming about next level design work, she enjoys obsessing over fun new office supplies and planning her next travel adventure. She lives in KC (Go Chiefs! And Travis + Taylor) with her husband, 2 kiddos, and of course her support staff, Nelson her dog.

Callie Conway

Callie Conway

Director of Sales

She would introduce herself as the favorite daughter of Jolene, but honestly is just the loudest. Callie is living proof that a strong-willed child ends up being a fierce and ambitious adult. Callie left a career in college football that she loved dearly to join our team when we needed her most. Her experience in recruiting lends itself to a unique skillset that has proven invaluable for Dible Dough. She’s been a part of this journey since the very beginning, which gives her a unique perspective of this family business. She loves all things that involve eating, drinking, and living in Texas, but especially playing mother to her toy goldendoodle, Nola.

Maddie Pool

Maddie Pool

Director of Business Development

What started as lending a hand to Jolene in Excel spreadsheets has landed Maddie a position that just keeps expanding. Maddie’s ability to look at our processes and reports and develop smarter ways to work has truly been an asset to Dible Dough. She not only performs all our accounting work daily but is also our Director of E-commerce Sales. She’s our go-to for all things computer related and will work tirelessly until the job is done. She too came from the college football world and will continue to be connected through her soon-to-be-husband, Mike, who is a coach. Maddie never says no to a project (although she may say it’s a waste of time) and always has a positive outlook on life.

Jeff Conway

Jeff Conway

Director of Partnership Development

Following a 38-year career coaching college football, Jeff now brings his loud voice to a new chapter. Embracing his passion for control and structure, he is transitioning into a role focused on contributing to the world of Dible Dough, bringing timeliness and organization to the table. His favorite part of the job is bartering with other vendors at trade shows for a suitcase full of snacks, but his main challenge is to keep Callie and Maddie on a straight path.
