Get to know a little bit more about Stephanie in the Q&A below!
Hometown: West Fargo, ND
Why are you in Fargo?
I am in Fargo because I was born and raised here and all of my family lives here. If I could get them all to move with me I would love to be in the warmth!
What do you do in your free time?
I spend my free time outdoors, with family and friends, re-purposing furniture, playing with my son, going to the lake in the summer, and keeping active.
What’s your favorite hidden gem that you’ve discovered so far in Fargo?
My hidden gem is eventually shopping at Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch for home decor because I didn’t realize how cute the decor they have is until I was volunteering there.
How did you first hear of Emerging Prairie?
I first heard of Emerging Prairie about a year ago when I attended a 1 Million Cups event but at the time I didn’t realize it was Emerging Prairie. I remember thinking to myself that I would really like to be a part of something as inspiring as this. I had this feeling at the 2018 TEDxFargo as well.
I look forward to networking and expanding my way of thinking. In general, I am extremely excited for this new journey with EP.
