Stephanie’s background and work experience

The Core Inner Circle
The Core Inner Circle is comprised of internationally known speakers, motivators, and facilitators who fully embrace creativity in the learning process. Our work and our lives are intentionally entwined, so we laugh and play while getting stuff done.

Supported by a strong network of Collaborators
Authenticity, compassion, and a positive attitude define each of us. Whether it’s in a board room with corporate executives or on a trail with at-risk-youth, sustainability and social justice are at the forefront of what we do. We are grateful to our network of Collaborators who continually make the world a better place and inspire others to join on the path.

Stephanie’s background and work experience
Having traveled extensively in 35 countries and on six continents – living in Australia, Thailand, Nepal, and numerous places throughout the United States, Stephanie has gained a unique global perspective, which when added to her diverse experiences working in not-for-profit and corporate environments, greatly benefits her clients.

As a change agent, Stephanie supports organizations and people in transition. She uses her extensive organizational development and facilitation experience to focus on increasing communication and building positive relationships.

Creative experiential strategies, “Theatre of the Oppressed,” improvisational theatre, visual arts, and literary arts – are all Stephanie’s passion. They provide insight and enliven discussion; this guides people toward clarity and, ultimately, success. Stephanie excels when developing start-up educational programs, including study abroad, leadership, mentoring, and service-learning.
