Stephanie lives in Hilton with her husband of 17 years and their two teenage boys, Nathan (16) and AJ (14). Her boys enjoy playing travel soccer, basketball, ice skating, etc. So while she usually feels like a taxi driver half the time, she truly enjoys watching them play. She started in November 2018 as our new Program Assistant working part-time and is usually here Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. She takes care of everything financial and fundraising related. She is enjoying being back in the work force working with other caring individuals and seeing the kindness and passion our volunteers here at Shepherd Home have.
