A New Jersey girl at heart, Stephanie earned her Bachelor’s in Psychology and worked in many different areas of the non-profit human services field early in her career. After a few years of struggling to pay the bills and single motherhood, she eventually wound up taking a position with a benefits outsourcing company where she worked her way up the corporate ladder to become a Project Manager. Shortly after the birth of her youngest (after a blissful marriage to her hubby!), Stephanie was laid off but felt grateful for the opportunity to now spend time as a stay at home mom. Once relocating to Fredericksburg in the fall of 2010, Stephanie returned to the workforce and to her roots. She currently works part time as a Day Support Specialist for the Rappahannock Community Services Board taking care of adults with intellectual disabilities and loves every minute of it! Stephanie started with Fredericksburg Parent and Family Magazine in 2011 and and contracted to coordinate the Event Staff in Spring 2013. Stephanie and her husband, Mike have 5 children and reside in the Massaponax area.
