Stephanie knew she had a passion for the arts as a young child. Originally from South Dakota—this self-proclaimed fine arts geek decided to attend the University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) to study graphic design and minor in art and music. While there she held internships at the Tweed Museum of Art and the Maurices headquarters office. Upon graduation she accepted an offer to work as a graphic designer for the South Dakota Office of Tourism. She later moved to Big Sky, Montana and worked for The Club at Spanish Peaks and then eventually accepted an invitation to serve a two-year Peace Corps assignment teaching in Cambodia. Stephanie currently works as a designer and marketing coordinator for the UMD International Programs and Services office. She and her husband Will reside in Duluth, MN—where they enjoy Lake Superior and their Duluthian love for the surrounding outdoors.
