A native Midwesterner, Stephanie developed her love of the outdoors in the woods and shores of Lake Michigan. After earning a degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan, she moved to Utah in 1998 for what was supposed to be a six month job assignment. More than twenty years later, she's still in Utah -- still captivated by the Wasatch and raising her two daughters to ski, hike and explore in the Cottonwood Canyons.
Stephanie is the Director of Strategic Initiatives for the Economic Development Corporation of Utah, a public/private partnership whose vision is to create a quality job for every aspiring Utahn. In her free time, you can find her hiking in Albion Basin or backcountry skiing a few mellow laps in Grizzly Gulch.
