One gadget Stephanie can’t live without: My phone. Without it, I would have no idea where I’m supposed to be or what I’m supposed to be doing!
Favorite quote: “Look good, feel good. Feel good, play good. Play good, they pay you good.”
If Stephanie couldn’t do what she does now as a profession, she would be a: baker. I love making baked good – cookies, pies, cakes and cupcakes.
Greatest pride: Helping people. I’m passionate about mentoring and coaching people inside/outside of work. I’m proud to be a part of their life and career journeys.
Most-visited website that’s not work-related: YouTube. I enjoy watching cooking videos, dog training videos and fix-it videos for fixing things around the house.
On volunteering: I love finding ways to “pay it forward” and give back to the community. It’s been part of my life ever since I was a girl. My mom and I would volunteer together at the local food banks and assistance ministries.
On The Course:
Has golfed for: A quarter century! I started in high school
What Stephanie would like to see more of on the course: Faster play. I wish you could play every course in 4 hours or less.
Favorite Tour player: Nelly Korda. What I would give to have her swing, and her competitive spirit is just fun to watch.
What part of the game of golf needs to change: Two things. First – an option for 12 and 15 hole rounds. Second – not having to hit your ball out of a divot!
What Stephanie would tell juniors to interest them in the game of golf: Golf is more than a sport. It’s a lifelong activity where you’ll build lasting friendships with people who share a love for the game.
