Everyday Etiquette was founded by Angela Sturdivant in 2002. As the director of Everyday Etiquette, Angela develops and presents a full range of programs in business and social etiquette. She was the Etiquette Director for Kimberly Juniors of the Contemporary Club which was founded in 1916 in Redlands, California. She has been instructing etiquette programs for children and adults in conjunction with the cities of Temecula, Murrieta and Fallbrook since 2002. She designs and delivers etiquette programs for the Temecula School District as well as etiquette and protocol presentations to corporations and professional associations. She has taught at many private schools including Van Avery Preparatory School. While at Van Avery, Mrs. Sturdivant created and taught and ongoing manners curriculum for their after-school "American Girl Program". For five years, she single-handedly envisioned, designed and implemented the Spring Patriots Cotillion at Temecula Preparatory School for over 120 students instructing them in dining and dancing. She has also designed and carried out programs for the Safe Families Program, The Girl Scouts of America, and Adult Bridge students at Great Oak High School, The Vail Ranch Middle School After-School Program and the Luiseno Elementary School After-School Enrichment Program.

She has also created an Employment Etiquette Training course for Two Directions of the Pala Band of Indians. She is quite proud of teaching over 3,000 students since 2002 in the Temecula Valley.
Angela earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business with a minor in Marketing from Richard Stockton State College of New Jersey. She was a women's clothing buyer for Macy's California for ten years where she traveled extensively all over the world. It was then she realized the need for the knowledge of global etiquette and protocol. With the birth of her first child, she decided to stay home and combine raising a family while starting her own business and putting her past experience to work. She began by merchandising locally for Burnes of Boston where she quickly worked her way up to the position of East coast Regional Merchandising Manager overseeing a staff of thirty.
After relocation to Southern California and enrolling her two children in school, she saw a great need for the reintroduction into society of traditional manners and etiquette. In 2002, she pursued certification in etiquette and protocol training with Sue Fox, the Founder of Etiquette Survival. Sue is the author of several books and one of the leading etiquette education experts in the country.
