Cassandra Gordon

Hello all! I am Cassandra Gordon, one of the creators of the Crayons Ready-to-Eat™, also well known as the CRE's™. I am a 24 year old who lives and works here in Lakeside, California. Even though I was born out here in California, I have also been a resident to Phoenix, AZ. When I was little, I started my education in Arizona and then about 13 years ago, I moved back here to Lakeside, CA, finishing my education at El Capitan High School, class of 2013. After graduating high school, I went to Grossmont College, starting my dream career to become a pastry chef. During that time, I had taken basic pastry, bread making, sugar sculpting, and (you guessed it) chocolate classes. 

Even though I never did become a pastry chef,  I had learned so much and had a wonderful time getting to know more about what I love. Since then, I have worked in a few retail jobs here and there, liking them but not getting anywhere. One of those retail jobs is where I had met Frank, who was my store manager at the time. He saw my potential in making chocolate and told me that one day, I will have my own business doing what I love. Sure enough, here we are with our own business! Not only is it something I love to do, but it reminds me of something I love: my family. I come from a family that served and is serving in the military. I am proud of every single one of them and knowing that these will bring them joy, makes me ecstatic and powers me on to follow my dream career. I can't wait to see what the future holds and I am very excited to share this journey not only with my partner Frank, but with all of you who are following us!
