She is responsible for assisting with candidate and client requests and skillfully manages all details and logistics related to open job requisitions.

Working in nonprofits since 2011, Stephanie began as an outsourced accountant with Project C.U.R.E. She joined Easterseals Colorado in 2012 as a part-time accountant and worked up to being a Payroll Administrator, HR Business Partner and Revenue Assurance Supervisor. She successfully migrated all third-party billing to Medicaid-direct billing and integrated a new customized payroll processing system. In 2017 Stephanie joined National Ski Patrol as an Accountant and quickly fell into people operations,  development and fundraising, quadrupling charitable donations for the organization within the first year. She volunteers with Denver Food Rescue, The Action Center and Applewood Community Church.

Stephanie earned her Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree in Values-Based Leadership from the University of Denver in 2008 and her Professional in Human Resources (PHR) Certification from the Human Resources Certification Institute in May 2020. She has helped several nonprofits identify their core values and align them with operations for the organizations’ optimal impact. She has been a speaker on nonprofit culture, values and empathy at the Colorado Nonprofit Association’s Fall Conference, and included on panels as a subject matter expert on intentional culture and employee experience. Stephanie’s professional dream is to raise employee engagement scores in nonprofits to be higher than any other business sector.

Stephanie resides near Denver, Colorado and is an avid hiker, paddleboarder, kayaker, camper and loves anything s’mores and s’mores-flavored.
