About Me


I’m Stephanie. I live in Portland—the one in Oregon, with all the hipsters and vegans—with my son, Eli. He will be three years old in July. I was working on finishing up my undergrad so I could begin applying to medical schools when the pregnancy test turned positive. It’s been a wild ride from then to now, but here I am, learning as I go along and loving every single second of it.

Being a mom makes every day taste sweeter, every moment more meaningful, every second so worth it. I highly recommend it. 😉

Fun Facts!

  • I watch Jeopardy every night and I take the test every year to be a contestant.
  • I love to arrange flowers and work in the garden. The more I smell like roses and dirt, the better.
  • I was on the track and field team in high school. My event? The pole vault.
  • I had never really held a baby until my son was born.
