Stefanie is an energetic, innovative thinker that believes everything is possible through collaboration. She is "Mommy" to 6 year old, Brayden, and wife to supportive husband, Scott. Through her work as an educational consultant with the School of Education at Johns Hopkins University, she happily relocated to North Carolina in 2007 to work with eight different high schools across the state to decrease dropout rates. She has called Wilmington "home" since 2008, and works as a corporate training manager.
Stefanie loves to stay busy and involved in New Hanover County, personally and professionally. She is a graduate of WILMA's 2016-2017 Women to Watch Leadership Institute, and was selected to serve on the Advisory Board; she also serves on the Board of Communities in Schools of Cape Fear.

Stefanie has worked in, and around public education for over fifteen years in different capacities. She earned a B.S. in Elementary Education from Bloomsburg University (Bloomsburg, PA), and an M.Ed. in Multicultural Education from Eastern University (St. David's, PA). She has provided direct service to students, educators, and administrators at schools in Philadelphia, Miami, and multiple cities in North Carolina including Greensboro, Kenansville, and Fayetteville.

A fun fact about Stefanie is that she is an avid sports fan who cheers loudest for the Philadelphia Eagles, but what she loves more, is that she is still known as "Coach" to many young, local athletes. Since 2005, she has coached four high school and college cheerleading squads including four years at Cape Fear Community College. Most recently, she enjoyed coaching her son's U4 and U5 rec soccer teams with Wilmington Hammerheads Youth FC. Go Alligators!
