Stephanie Cole joins the Fusion team as the Learning Specialist. Stephanie has well- established roots in both classroom teaching 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. Deeply missing the teaching experience, she returned to the classroom as a lead teacher. During this time, Stephanie obtained her master’s degree in educational administration with a focus on curriculum design. In 2015 Stephanie relocated to the Bay Area and began work in the mental health field combining educational practices with mental health understanding, serving as a program manager for executive function coaching services. Returning to her passion for education, Stephanie joins the Fusion team with much excitement and enthusiasm for educating all types of learners.
When she is not teaching, Stephanie enjoys reading, exercising, and cooking. Her and her husband are the proud parents of two rescue dogs!
