Steph is a wife, mother of two, early childhood educator, marriage and family counselor, dancer, professional mentor, health and wellness coach, and entrepreneur.
Steph was born and raised near Grand Junction, Colorado, as one of nine children. Growing up in a large family, she learned the value of work at a young age and started a babysitting business at the age of ten. Her passion for educating young people and her entrepreneurial spirit came through early in life as she would often make $500 a day in her business.
As her reputation had grown, her services had become in such high demand that she could create this income by accepting 15 children at a time. By the time the parents came home, Stephanie would have the home completely organized, and the children happily engaged in various activities, which she loved preparing in advance.
For Stephanie, nurturing little people, starting businesses from scratch, and teaching organization skills at all levels would become lifelong passions and callings. As a last-ditch effort to help Steph overcome severe shyness, her parents enrolled her in dance at the age of five. She developed a great work ethic for dance throughout her childhood and teenage years. During these years, Stephanie studied dance and invested a lot of time in the arts in general — choreographing, dancing, singing, and regularly performing in care centers for the elderly (whom she came to love and adore).
