After finishing grad school, I began making natural bath & body products in my kitchen in 2000 as a way to make family and friends homemade, practical gifts. Shortly thereafter (just after 9/11), I began teaching classes. It seemed only natural for me to combine my passion for my new hobby with my training and love for teaching. I have a Master's Degree in Speech Communication from the University of Hawaii (which has nothing to do with making bath & body products, but I always knew I would end up teaching in some capacity).
In September 2003, I opened The Nova Studio in historic downtown Point Richmond, CA (just 20 miles from San Francisco, and 10 miles from Berkeley). The Nova Studio features my soap, bath & body, and candle classes as well as classes taught by other visiting & local Bay Area teachers. My goal is to provide a creative space that encourages both students and teachers to find and share their passions with others in the community.
I am a proud member of The Handcrafted Soapmaker's Guild (the HSMG) and have taught at their annual conferences in 2007 (Hot Process Soap), 2008 (Cold Process Swirling) & 2009 (Coloring Soap with Confidence). I have also taught classes for The University of Hawaii at Manoa, Foothill De Anza (FHDA) Community College, The Learning Annex of San Francisco, Juniper Tree Soap & Candle Supply Store in Berkeley, The Native American Cultural Center & The Berkeley Ecology Center.
