Stephanie Cole is already a member of the Fusion family! Prior to fulfilling the role of Director of Admissions and Outreach, Stephanie was the Learning Specialist on campus. She has well- established roots in both classroom teaching practices and in the mental health industry. Her journey into the world of education started when she began volunteer work at a therapeutic riding center in Northern New Jersey during her high school years. Igniting her passion for helping children and teens, she decided to complete her bachelor’s degree in special education. Upon graduation, she launched into the field of alternative education placements, working as an educational consultant in Cincinnati, Ohio. Stephanie went on to obtain her master’s degree in educational administration. In 2015 she relocated to the Bay Area and began work in the mental health field combining educational pedagogy with mental health understanding, serving as a program manager for executive function coaching services. Returning to her passion for education, Stephanie joined the Fusion team with much excitement and enthusiasm for educating and advocating for all types of learners!
When she is not on campus, Stephanie enjoys reading, exercising, and cooking. She and her husband are the proud parents of two rescue dogs!
