Susan’s obstetric nursing career had evolved into medical software implementation. Then, in 1998, she enrolled in Le Cordon Bleu-Paris’s Basic Pastry Program. School in Paris was exciting, and life changing. After completing the Diplôme de Pâtisserie, she opened The Little French Bakery, a special order bakery and cooking school.  In 2010, Susan began blogging. Her stories of culinary school are heartfelt and humorous, taking her readers with her on the journey.
