Susan Werner’s Bio
Susan Werner earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from California State University, Long Beach (1993), is a Psi Chi Honor Society member, and is certified in Etiquette and International Protocol by the Protocol School of Washington, in Washington D.C. She has been teaching “Etiquette” at the Balboa Bay Club in Newport for the past 16 years and was an instructor of “International Protocol” at CSULB Extension Services (2000-2003).
From 1998-2002 Susan hosted a local access cable T.V. show “Susan Werner At Home” which addressed graceful living in Southern California. It offered a voice to local charities, gave instructions on floral design, table setting, etiquette, and other graceful living tips. Her most recent t.v. appearance was on “Parents just don’t understand”. A ten year old boy (Cole) switches life with his Mother for the day (including our cotillion). Have fun watching:
What should not be over looked, is the role Susan has taken in the community with her contribution to local Charities. She is a former Board member of the Long Beach Grand Cru which benefits the Legal Aid Society of Los Angeles. She is also a former County Public Relations Officer for the Philharmonic Committee’s of Orange County, served as Head Advisor for the Junior Philharmonic of Orange County, and Vice President of Huntington Beach High School’s Orchestral APA program.
In the end, Susan’s greatest ambition is to enrich the lives of those around her, through the kindness to other’s expressed in etiquette, through her volunteer efforts or for the sheer delight of enjoying the Traditional English Toffee she made with her Grandmother so long ago. For information about her toffee you can visit Addington Confections Website at www.Englishtoffee.net.
Thank you, from all of us at Addington Cotillion for being part of our vision, to create a kind, dynamic and meaningful future for our children.
