Senior Account Director
Stephanie believes in the power of stories—stories that connect people with ideas, products and one another.
Prior to joining Crux, Stephanie served as creative partner at Capital E Advisors, a wealth management brand with disruptor branding goals. She also served as a brand strategist for Popham Law Firm and Worcester Investments, focusing on employer branding, social media strategy and message development. Stephanie loves the process of pinpointing a goal outcome for clients and then developing a strategic plan to reach it. She finds the most fun in collaborating with other movers, shakers and thinkers, and being part of helping clients’ business dreams become reality.
She is a former Teach for America corps member and learning team leader and was awarded the AAUW of Kansas City Award, the Karen and Joylan Herman Award in Women’s Studies with Merit and the Sosland Teaching Award in 2017.
When she isn’t shaping strategic storytelling plans for clients, Stephanie can be found running a 10k, traveling or hanging out with her family and her golden retriever, Sven.
“Successful brands spark joy. In other words, they give you the same goosebumps Marie Kondo says you’re supposed to get from your favorite pair of pants.”
Master of Fine Arts in creative writing from University of Missouri—Kansas City and a Bachelor of Science in philosophy from College of the Ozarks.
