Fun Facts About Stephanie

Most Proud Of:
Rescuing, and bottle-feeding back to health, what was then a 1-week old, half-a-pound kitten from a local animal shelter (she is now 11 years old). Later, worked with a pretty amazing group of volunteers to build a foundation from the ground up, dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of homeless animals, http://animalshelterfoundation.org/
Can't Resist:
Frames! (eyewear frames that is.) And a good cup of coffee. Oh, and a trail run. Wait, one more: shoes. Was there a limit to this question?
The Most Unusual Thing In Your Office:
Stacks of paper. For someone who loves modern design and clean lines, it looks like someone ransacked my office while I was out.
What Most People Don't Know About Me:
Did set design in high school, more than 450 unique beer check-ins, always looking to experience the out-of-the-ordinary (ice hotel, tree house and yurt are some of the most recent).
Favorite Convenience Store Item:
Chocolate milk after a run and trail mix on road trips. That’s right, folks: lots of better-for-you options are available at a c-store near you.
