Stephanie started her career in event planning with an internship at a Department of Energy National Laboratory, Jefferson Lab, located in Newport News, VA. She spent 1.5 years as a full-time student with a part-time position, learning the ins and outs of government conferences and meetings. After graduation from Old Dominion University with her Bachelor of Science in Recreation and Tourism Management, Stephanie was hired full-time at Jefferson Lab into a Public Affairs position. She handled all on-site tours of the facility. After 6 months in that position, there was an opening in the event planning department, and Stephanie shifted into her full-time career as an Event Planner.
