Stephanie has been living in the Fort Collins area since 2000, when she came to Colorado State University where she earned her Bachelor's degree in Biology. She currently lives here with her husband, son, daughter, and their two dogs.
Stephanie first began her training as a Birthing From Within Mentor in the spring of 2009, teaching her first class later that year, and has been teaching childbirth classes regularly ever since. Birthing From Within training requirements are extensive, often taking years to certify, due to the sensitive emotional work mentors do with parents. Stephanie successfully completed her mentor certification with Birthing From Within in 2013 and began working as an Advisor to new mentors in the Birthing From Within program in 2014. She also trained as a Birth Story Listener in 2012.
When Stephanie is not working with families, she can often be found reading a good book, writing or painting, spending time with her family, or on one of our beautiful local hiking trails.
