jaime lehman
chairperson of the board

Jaime is the Founder and Executive Director of For Goodness Cakes. Her background in pastry is mostly self-taught with a smattering of intensive courses at the Gourmandaise School of Sweets and Savories in Santa Monica. She founded and operated a food truck called The Butterscotch Girl in the Bay Area serving pot de creme desserts. 

In her spare time, Jaime has too many hobbies which include simple leatherwork, throwing tea parties, yoga, folding origami, and (the most obvious) baking. Her favorite cookbooks include Alice Water’s The Art of Simple Food and Donia Bijan’s Maman’s Homesick Pie: A Persian Heart in an American Kitchen, both of whose authors helped to inspire a deep love of cooking for others.

Director

Ryan Laughlin is a Producer in the video game industry. He currently works in the Live Services group at Riot Games and helps keep League of Legends' service running 24/7 across the globe. Being more of a taste tester than a baker, Ryan spends his time helping the non-profit by driving Jaime's creations around the city. When he's not working you can find him playing guitar, learning the art of making deliciously smoked meats, and perfecting his chili recipe.
