If you want to know more about San Francisco Fusion Academy, who are you going to call? Well, Stephanie Ayala of course! As the first point of contact for all things Fusion, Stephanie works energetically to welcome and inform prospective families and the community on current and upcoming events as well as spreading the Fusion story to any and everyone who will listen!
Stephanie majored in Communications with an emphasis on Advertising from sunny San Diego State University. Always very involved with student affairs, Stephanie knew her calling was to work in education and moved back to the Bay Area to work at a school catered toward Career Technical Education. There she handled outreach, enrollment and served as an advisor to over 700 high school juniors and seniors. Realizing how much she loved advocating for students and non-traditional education, she proceeded to earn a Masters in Educational Leadership from California State University, East Bay. After earning her Masters, Stephanie decided to share her passion for education abroad and had an amazing 6 months teaching English in Thailand! Sawadee Kaa!
In her spare time you can find her volunteering on the board for her local library where she shares her love for books and libraries with others. Additionally, Stephanie spends time practicing yoga, cheering on the Oakland A’s, reading English and Spanish novels, eating pizza and taking long walks with her white, fluffy, Maltipoo puppy, Penelope!
