Before joining Brodart in 2016, Stephanie worked for more than 20 years in public, academic, and special libraries. She is an avid gardener, bicyclist, and kayaker. When not outdoors, she thrives on home improvement projects. In her opinion, the best things in life revolve around such disparate things as Chuck Berry, AC/DC, James Brown, Black Sabbath, Jack London, M.C. Beaton, Law & Order and The Waltons. Like many librarians she believes “why buy when you can borrow?” – eschewing cable television and personal ownership of books and media. She makes an exception for her all-time favorite, Larry McMurtry’s Lonesome Dove; she possesses both the miniseries and a well-worn paperback.
