Fun Fact: Stephanie considers herself a jukebox D.J. and “performs” almost every Thursday.
When Stephanie joined North Star, the firm changed. Suddenly, everything had a label, a designated place, and secure electronic filing began. Stephanie has a knack for organization, to put it lightly. She has had quite the impact on the North Star team, and would thus be considered the ultimate planner. Stephanie takes ownership of all projects thrown in her direction, and executes them to the very end, and in this way, she has become an integral part of the North Star team.
When she’s not bossing everyone around, Stephanie enjoys crochet, coloring, and all things British television. She also loves spending time with her husband and their three rescue animals.

- What do you love about your job?
I love the unpredictability of it, everyday a new challenge emerges, a different obstacle needs conquered. I love the feeling of accomplishment when a project is completed, and not just completed, but executed perfectly. Working with such a diverse team has definitely been a benefit to not only enhancing my interpersonal skills, but also to learning different approaches based on the subject and the recipient.
- Outside of your job, what other things do you enjoy? What are your hobbies?
As stated above, I like to crochet, play games and solve puzzles, and keep up on my BBC shows. I have a very needy dog and two opposing cats, so my life at home is full of constant surprises and cuteness overload. The team would get a kick out of this – but I kind of consider myself some sort of Disney princess in terms of animal appreciation. Squirrels, chipmunks, red pandas – I love them all! And of course, I love spending time with my husband, even if he does protest picking up random animals from the side of the road.
- How do you want to be remembered?
Kindly. Maybe it’s because I am from Cleveland Ohio, but I’ve always rooted for the underdog. I like to think that I am an advocate for those without a voice, or are too quiet to be heard. I hope to have made a positive impact on at least some of the people I’ve encountered. Changing the world seems unrealistic – but in helping individuals realize their potential and giving them the tools to achieve it, is what I like to think is my purpose.
