"I’ve always been a planner with big goals and lofty ambitions," says Stephanie. Still, she marvels that her career has been "Everything I imagined and more. I have had the opportunity to work with incredible teams and amazing clients in the most surprising locations. Every day is a new day with a fresh beginning and endless potential." Stephanie has carried that motivation and positive spirit with her around the world, whether working on her capstone thesis on urbanism in Buenos Aires, traveling to see family in Croatia or any of the other 40 countries she has visited. Her back-up career, she suggests, would’ve been working for the U.S. State Department as a foreign service diplomat. Instead, she carves out time to work on her Serbian. "After being married to a Serb for more than a decade, I have a basic knowledge of the language," she notes. "My four-year-old is more fluent than I am."
