Cutler Real Estate asked Stephanie a few questions so you can get to know her better, and here are Stephanie's replies.
1. What is your professional/educational background?
I am a graduate of Stow Munroe Falls High School. I first went to the University of Akron and graduated with a degree in Applied Health Sciences and licensure in Radiology. I then attended Malone University for a bachelors in Organizational Management, while working full time in healthcare. After that, I went to Hondros for Real Estate.
2. Why did you choose a career in real estate?
My first child was born premature and had a long hospital stay. I would have had to go back to work when he was still in intensive care. I needed to do what was best for my family so I made the decision to leave my healthcare career behind. I knew I was making the right decision but as a career driven woman the decision was still difficult. I still wanted to be doing something outside of "Mom". I had always had an interest in being a real estate agent (I'm an HGTV junkie with builders in the family). I already had the interest, the connections, and the support so I decided that it was the best time to take the gamble and do something that genuinely had my interest. I was able to be a Mom and also feel successful in my career.
3. What area do you live in currently and what do you like about where you live?
I have lived in Stow my whole life. I love the sense of community.
4. How do you spend your free time?
With my family! As much outdoor time as possible.
5. In one word, how do you think your friends/family would describe you?
