Stephanie is a proud graduate of the University of Michigan and will forever go blue. She is a mid-westerner at heart, calling Michigan home. She calls Colorado her second home, as she currently lives in Denver. Even in Colorado, where lakes do not appear around every bend as they do in her hometown, Stephanie gets her water fix by boating, paddle boarding, kayaking and beach camping at reservoirs and alpine lakes across Colorado. When she is not chasing water, Stephanie loves hiking, skiing, camping and enjoying the 300 days a year of sunshine that Colorado offers.
