Stephanie took a job as an administrative assistant at a Kansas City area law firm after returning from Mongolia.  As our business picked up, she started taking some of the assignments, as well as working on back-end organization and scheduling.  Recently she has moved on to a full-time administrative position at a local college. She is a talented academic writer and researcher, a highly efficient and organized worker, and an excellent teacher/tutor.  Her interests also lie in choral music (she sings Soprano with the William Baker Festival Singers of Kansas City: festivalsingers.org), fiction writing, and gaming culture.
