Stephanie is the second oldest of five children and has lived in Columbia City since the age of 13. Babysitting and homeschooling with her siblings instilled in her a love for caring for children. After graduating high school in 2011, she married her husband, Dennis, in 2013. Not long after that, Stephanie began attending school to become a medical assistant. A year of post-college experience working with oncology patients gave Stephanie the confidence to switch to family medicine, where she has been for the past 6 years. Her passion for women’s health began in 2014, when she began to practice the Creighton method for herself after the birth of her first son, Noah.
Since then, she has welcomed two more boys into their family: Matthew and Wyatt. “I was meant to be a boy mom!” is a phrase often heard from Stephanie. Her family of 5 enjoys exploring their community with frequent trips to the zoo, aquatics center and local parks. Christmas is her favorite time of the year, especially seeing the lights around town. Although family time is most important to her, a good book and a warm blanket are a close second.
Stephanie is so excited to teach Creighton at FMCC! Her first-hand experience and passion to share her knowledge will help change other women’s lives, no matter where they are in their journey.
