A Note From Steph:

I have a deep passion for shaping ideas into a journey of understanding. I've been told one of my greatest strengths is turning what you're saying into what you meant to say so your words can transform your community.

My deep curiosity allows me to insightfully interpret who you are so you can share with the world why you are indispensable to your tribe. It's why I help others ground ideas within stories.

Story creates an intimate conversation between the author and reader. It's my honor to help you translate the pivotal moments of your journey into tangible solutions for your audience.
