Stephanie comes from a family where music and service were instilled at a young age. She began piano at four and studied clarinet and oboe throughout high school. As the youngest of four girls, there were always instruments in the home to “experiment” with and she fondly remembers her mother creating a quartet with her and her three sisters performing at local nursing homes and hospitals during the holidays. Those early memories lasted with Stephanie creating the link between music, community, and philanthropy. Today, it is her goal to ensure everyone has access to the beauty of music and the voice it creates even in the most marginalized populations.
When not dreaming of new and innovative ways to fundraise, Stephanie enjoys time with her husband and two children, Hannah and Jake.
