Stephanie was born and raised in Maryland. From a very early age, she had a love and passion for history. This passion was influenced and cultivated by her father, whose ancestors were some of the earliest settlers in the state of Maryland. She was taught patriotism and love for God and country. The family was immersed in history as there were historical prints on the walls, books to read, and many of the family vacations were battlefields, plantations, and museums. This included many trips to Gettysburg, as it was so close to home. As an adult, Stephanie expanded on this, and became involved in living history and reenacting, which her children participate in as well. She is a proud member of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, the Order of the Confederate Rose, and the Pipe Creek Civil War Roundtable. She has been employed with the Gettysburg Foundation and Destination Gettysburg, where she has worked at the Gettysburg Visitor Center, Rupp House and the Historic Train Station. She also volunteers her time at planning events at historic places, such as the Union Mills Homestead, the Battle of Corbit’s Charge in Westminster, the Carroll County Farm Museum, and the Shriver House in Gettysburg. She has planned period balls and events with speakers and authors. Stephanie joined the Horse Soldier staff in 2015, where she works in sales and writing descriptions for the website.
