Meet our Team!
Having never been in the restaurant industry, Amanda Stoner is the newest. She has embraced her career as a chef with passion. Her deep appreciation for cuisine started at a young age when she found she could create meals that were both healthy and tasted good. Her favorite meal is one she can create for someone else. Growing up in the Bay Area, Amanda was exposed to a variety of foods that would fuel her life long passion for cooking. “The day you stop learning is the day you’re done”. ‘Never stop learning’ is what she lives by these days.
After completing a Discipleship Training School with Youth With A Mission (YWAM) San Francisco in 2015, she moved to Oakhurst, joining the YWAM base there. She ran their kitchen department for two years. After a brief stint at YWAM base in Mendocino, CA, completing two other schools and (of course) working in the kitchen, she moved back to Oakhurst, working at Camp Oakhurst’s kitchen. As fate would have it, she was introduced to the REV’s family and can’t wait to see
where it will take her.
