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.
Meysam was most recently Director of Digital Ventures at Pizza Hut US, and has spent the past 10 years in various digital roles around the world spanning product management, digital marketing, business development, e-commerce and startup ventures. His five-year stint at Google saw him involved in the launch of Android Pay in the US and the development of a digital toolkit to help Fortune 500 companies as well as high-growth startups succeed in digital. He has a global citizen mindset after working in Germany, Austria, Saudi Arabia, China, Ireland and the US over the past decade.
Jessica is an Art Director and Designer with a primary focus of volunteering her design skills to help build nonprofit brands in an area where it is usually quite costly. She has a degree in Advertising and spent a majority of her young career creating campaigns and designing for Popchips, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, VMware, and The Salt Institute. However, her passion is to help nonprofits, such as For Goodness Cakes, the Women's Building, GreatNonprofits.org and more, to create exciting and well-designed assets to help with fundraising and other needs. Whenever she has free time (which she doesn’t), she likes to adventure around San Francisco.
