Los Angeles, CA
Joe’s® Jeans, HR and Recruitment Business Partner
Stephanie started her career in the fashion industry in Boston at Abercrombie & Fitch. In 2011 she moved to Los Angeles as the GM of the West Coast Flagship A&F. She met her husband Kevin in LA soon after (he is originally from Stephanie's home state of Arizona). He owns the clothing company VENLEY and they met when she was working as a sales and production representative for a wholesale company that shared a warehouse with Venley. They married on 5-28-2016, and got pregnant with her little baby, Byron, a couple weeks after returning home from their honeymoon in Greece. Aside from Byron, she’s obsessed with their dogs Spud and Sundae (@sundaeswithpotato), two loving, cavalier King Charles spaniels. Stephanie is a graduate of TCU — go Horned Frogs!
Best parenting advice you ever received:
Go with your gut, you and only you know the best way to raise your child.
Best mommy make-up tip:
Wunderbrow. I love when my brows are on point, but I don't always have the time to do them in the mornings, so being able to apply them once Byron has gone down for the night is most convenient. It's such a nice treat to wake up to smudge proof brows to start my day or hit the gym.
Best mommy fashion tip:
Thank goodness for the athleisure trend and Lululemon creating such flattering compression pants. Their high-waisted Capri pant with side pockets not only acted as a tummy slimming pant, but is convenient for all activities athletic and functional.
I never leave the house without:
Kind cereal bars. These rolled oat, protein packed, gluten free/dairy free cereal bars help promote healthy habits and stimulate lactation production. Super easy breakfast on the go!
Favorite thing to do with your baby:
My girlfriend Christina and I hike 8 miles once or twice a week with our little ones since we were cleared to work out. Not only do the babies sleep the entire time; it's mommy/baby bonding, a fitness outlet and 2-3 hours that I can talk all things momma with someone who is experiencing it all in real time with me.
Your Mommy Mantra:
Remain present and appreciate every moment.
Fave place to use your Fabulous Feeding Cloth:
Before work meetings, date nights, and girls’ dinners if I want to cuddle my boy and I don't want to risk drool or spit up. I pop it on for stress free / mess free cuddles.
