“Stephanie was awesome in helping plan a girls trip to Asheville NC! She recommended a quaint Air B&B with hosts who were fantastic. With her guidance we rented a car and drove through the beautiful hills and went to the Biltmore house. We also signed up for a food and drink tour which took us to several local restaurants in Asheville. Over all it was one of the best trips I’ve taken and would definitely love to go back!  Thanks Stephanie!”

“Stephanie’s Warrior Workshop taught my co-workers and I practical tips and strategies to protect ourselves from being assaulted. As a realtor who is often alone in homes during open houses and showings, I need to know how to protect myself.  Stephanie’s class was hands-on, empowering and lots of fun!”
