Hey I’m Stefanie! I wanted to introduce myself to our new friends👋 1️⃣I’m a very passionate person and I work at/ love what I’m passionate about with my heart and soul: God, my husband, seeing broken hearts healed, my family, speaking worth over others, to name some. 2️⃣I’m empathetic and sensitive. When someone tells me a story or I watch a movie I really put myself in their shoes and can imagine a bit of what they would be going through. 3️⃣I’m a new entrepreneur following in my dad’s footsteps. I understand him on a new level this year and the sacrifices he made to start his own company. He owns a construction company, my husband and I started a photography/education company. Just like my dad, I’m a lifelong learner and I have worked my butt off to know all I can to be a good photographer so I can serve my clients to the best of my ability. (I would love to be your photographer!!) I’m super excited to be with people in the joyful moments of their lives like engagements and weddings!! 4️⃣I have my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy and credits towards a degree in Theology (study of God) from Fuller Theological Seminary. I worked as a therapist doing drug and alcohol rehab counseling, domestic abuse counseling, marriage counseling, family and individual counseling. I loved seeing broken hearts mend and loved aspects of the job but didn’t get the degree to stay a therapist. 5️⃣Other jobs I had that I loved: a Spiritual Formations and Biblical Studies teacher with a focus on family relationships and was on staff with Young Life. I miss the students/kids from these places like crazy and feel like a piece of my heart is with them. 6️⃣My life was changed when I spent time in an orphanage in Rwanda. A piece of my heart is with them as well. Being with the amazing people there totally changed my perspective on life. 7️⃣I love animals! When I was a kid I brought all kinds of wild animals and creatures home to my mom (to her dismay). Now I bring animals home to my husband! 8️⃣I'm learning how to cook and bake a lot better to my husbands delight! I'm also a clean freak and am allergic to so many things 🤧 Now your turn! I would love to learn something about you!
