Stephanie is an artist and entrepreneur who grew up on a family farm in Massachusetts. A 2007 graduate of Manhattanville College, Stephanie studied writing, sociology and theater. In the years since, she has launched a number of pet projects and small businesses, including FrankenStuffs, which are one of a kind, handmade plush animals made from recycled toys, and the popular Queer Expression Fairs in Brooklyn, featured in TimeOut and Go Magazine. On the side, she personally runs all of the local Hudson Valley Housing groups on Facebook, an independent pet sitting and dog daycare service, and the increasingly popular Beacon Babysitting page. She is resourceful, practical, and an old school creative pioneer. Stephanie moved to Beacon just two weeks after visiting for the first time four years ago, and she has never looked back. She is thrilled to now be able to help others make their homes in the Hudson Valley, where she has found so much happiness and success.
