Stephanie is firmly invested in her hometown of Wilmington, North Carolina, named one of the South’s best coastal towns. She holds undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of North Carolina Wilmington. Her investment in the local community extends to founding The Inspiration Lab™, which provides teaching, tools, and connection for working women. Stephanie is particularly passionate about empowering other women who want to grow their real estate businesses, start their own boutique real estate firms, or own a small business. In the fall of 2019, Lanier Property Group and The Inspiration Lab will team up to host a conference in Wilmington with an entire day devoted to real estate and marketing. Hundreds of marketers, real estate agents, and REALTORS® from across the U.S. and Canada are expended to attend.
Stephanie is known for her ability to bring inspiration and tangible takeaways. She does this whether speaking with her real estate team, her buyers, sellers, and developers, or new audiences. She enjoys writing as a contributor with Inman News, the real estate industry’s leading information source, as well as on The Lanier Property Group and Inspiration Lab blogs.
As a parent to a child with special needs, Stephanie has made a study out of work-life integration and self-care. When she isn’t leading her businesses, volunteering with charities close to her heart, or caring for her team and family, Stephanie speaks to audiences on creating work-life integration. She also speaks to business owners and entrepreneurs about developing and fostering intentional company cultures, as well as about best practices for content marketing and personal branding. Stephanie’s out-of-the-box ideas have received national industry coverage.
