Outside the office, Stephanie has put her extracurricular hobbies on hold (for the moment), to chase after her two delightful, firecracker daughters, from sun-up to sun-down. She loves nothing more than to snuggle on the sofa with her husband each night after her little ones have finally gone to bed!
