About Stephanie
After 15 years working in high-tech I had enough of the constant stress, demanding work and long hours scrunched at my desk trying to solve other peoples issues. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do next so I started taking classes in anything that sounded interesting. I took my first cooking class at the local community college and loved the way it made me feel. It wasn't until I took my first baking class in this degree program that I knew I was home. After graduating with a hospitality management degree, I transferred to Johnson and Wales University in Rhode Island to earn a degree in Pastry Arts

My first job was with the Rhode Island Hospital. This hospital had received great recognition for the quality of food the kitchen produced. The director wanted to create a pastry program to expand the selections even more. Thus starte
d my career.

Coming back to the bay area, I wanted a more autonomous position, so I went into business for my self; first with a whole sale bakery which morphed into a catering business. I did this for 12 years, and loved it. All this time I was teaching community baking classes, adult education baking and pastry classes, and teaching part time at Mission College in Santa Clara.

I was then asked by Mission Valley ROP program to create a culinary/pastry program from scratch. It was a real challenge, but I found I really like challenges. From there I went to work for Whole Foods as a Pastry Chef.

After a few years of working for WFM I started teaching at the Art Institute in San Francisco. From there I went to Le Cordon Bleu, Also in San Francisco.

In the middle of all this I got married to a wonderful man.

The Cordon Bleu closed in September of 2016. Which brings me to the present. I am passionate about teaching baking and pastry, and hope to create a program which will allow students to understand baking, not to just follow recipes. My goal is to flame the creativity, and passion in my student, and fuel the desire to keep learning.

We hired Stephanie to do baking classes for my 11 year old daughter and could not be more pleased!! I came home yesterday to not only delicious pastries, but a brightness and pride on my daughter's face that is rare for her. Seeing her shine and develop her passion is priceless! Thank you Stephanie and we look forward to many more lessons in the future!

About Suyoun
Hello! My name is Sue and I've been teaching English to Koreans, Koreans to English speakers since 2007.
From this long experience, I learned how different and opposite these 2 languages are, so I can teach my student how to learn this beautiful Korean language the most efficient way and fun.

How can I make the classes fun? Along with language classes, I will share lots of Korean culture and history, so the students have always interest in the Korean culture. Once you are interested in that culture, it will be inevitable not to learn the language! Always remember! Language and Culture. These are 2 things that never be separated.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

She encourages people to think of fabric like ingredients and does whatever she can to relate food to fashion including making nutrition label T-shirts to show what's actually in the tee. Due to multiple allergies, you can learn healthy alternatives of what to put in and on your body.

She is on the Advisory Board for Fashion Revolution USA, and the Fashion Department at Santa Monica College AND LOVES TO NERD OUT ABOUT SUSTAINABLE FASHION AND HEALTHY FABRICS.

My 7 year old daughter had been asking to take sewing lessons for months. She's learned so much in a short amount of time. She’s learned both hand sewing and machine sewing techniques and is looking forward to her next lesson.
