Stefanie was born and raised in Southern California along with her older brother and four older sisters. She grew up in a very tight-knit family that enjoyed riding horses and performing in western shows together.
As a young girl, Stefanie developed an affection for art. She was often found with a sketchpad and pack of colored pencils in hand, creating – what she was sure to be – the next big trend in fashion. As Stefanie grew, so did her love of art. It's really no surprise that her drive and passion for the creative world led her to a career as a Senior Graphic Designer and Photographer.
Stefanie attended design school in Costa Mesa, California. After graduating in 2005, she began her design career at a real estate investment bank in Newport Beach, working as a graphic designer. In 2007, she relocated to Phoenix and has since grown to love the desert, proudly calling it home.
When Stefanie is not working or trying to keep up with her adorable cockapoo and two hilarious kids, she can be found baking, cooking, entertaining friends, practicing yoga, reading, traveling the globe or enjoying all that the beautiful Arizona outdoors has to offer.
