Born in Missouri and raised in Colorado, Stephanie was exposed to the medical field early on while helping with her father's Physical Therapy clinic. With the love for patient care in her blood, she continued her medical experience working as a cast technician in an Orthopedic Clinic while attending Nursing School. After graduating from Nursing School, Stephanie worked for an Orthopedic Spine Surgeon for 10 years before moving to Minnesota where she took a job as a medical administrator for a non-surgical orthopedic physician.
