Stephanie is passionate about her family, movies, music, biking, puppies, and cheeseburgers – not necessarily in that order. She lives in Des Moines with her loving and supportive husband and their fluffball of a ‘furby’. Stephanie pursues success as defined by Ralph Waldo Emerson:
To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
