What My Clients Have to Say:
Alexia Vernon, Communication and Leadership Expert
Stephenie has been a tremendous asset both to me and to my coaching clients. For 5+ years I have worked with her on websites, speaker one-sheets, physical marketing materials, event signage and other branding pieces. Stephenie consistently impresses me with her ability to bring her intuitive gifts and whip-smart strategic sensibilities to all projects she works on. She is talented, smart, a great communicator, flexible and delivers projects on time. I highly recommend her work.
Elizabeth blue, copywriter
I’m so happy with the website Stephenie designed for me, and it was such a great experience working with her and her team! I was in the midst of creating many new offerings and refining my message, and Stephenie was extremely supportive, helpful and patient throughout my process. She also brings to the table excellent feedback on messaging and packages and helped me reach new levels of clarity on my new offerings. I really feel that we co-created the look of my site, as she took in all my input and feedback every step of the way, and was able to bring my vision to life. The finished product feels so completely ME! I highly recommend her design work and especially her website design.
Skip lackey, business coach
I have worked with Stephenie on a number of occasions from having her do a brand audit to building multiple websites for my companies to suggesting her to clients. She ALWAYS comes through with excellent work. Not only that, She also brings a unique set of skills and expertise to every project that she has been involved with. Would I use again? Absolutely! Did I share how fast her turn around is? If you are looking for someone with her skill set — Look no further.
Maia Macek, Coach
I love what you’ve done. You’ve created something far more beautiful and professional than I ever imagined. Aaaahhh. Happiness! I would absolutely recommend Jumpstart, because it’s so comprehensive. No matter what obstacles you present with, the Jumpstart package has a solution. I had all my copy written beforehand (which is something Jumpstart will do for you), but I had no idea how to communicate what I saw in my mind, in terms of design. All of that was taken care of by the planning and prep worksheets. It was kind of amazing. When I look at my website, I can’t even believe how gorgeous and ME it all is! It’s far better visually and in terms of layout, than I could have even imagined for myself.
Amy villegas, Marketing assistant
I’ve worked directly with Stephenie for the past several years and have watched her serve her clients in the most amazing way. Not only does she help people find their passion in work, she gives them the tools to help them achieve it. She has an endless supply of knowledge and shares it freely to help everyone she comes across.
When she is designing a website, she has a gift for hitting the nail right on the head. Stephenie takes her client’s vision and makes it come to life, balancing personal preferences with purposeful design. Stephenie creates wonderfully constructed content as well as tons of other bonuses with her affordable Jumpstart package. She is timely and communicates clearly with her clients, often going above and beyond.
You know that “I’m so glad this person is in my life” kind of feeling? I’m pretty sure everyone who comes across Stephenie feels this way. She's not only a great boss lady but also an amazing person to know. It’s an honor to assist her in the work that she does.
Kara Sorensen, Body Wisdom Mastery
Intuitive. Passionate. Sincere. Stephenie has been my brand strategist for almost 6 years and has seen me through many shifts and changes in my business. I’m so grateful that I found her as she understands my business better than anyone I’ve worked with and I’ve worked with many. Beyond her savvy marketing and graphic design skills, Stephenie has a keen sense of when your message is on target and when it’s not. She sees through the fears, doubts and the hiding that entrepreneurs can get stuck in and keeps calling out your best.
I would highly recommend Stephenie if you’re looking for someone with impeccable integrity that you can count on to co-create your brand that’s in alignment with your soul.
Working with Stephenie made me realize how important it is to have a web designer who can see the big picture and execute a clear vision. There are plenty of people who can copy a template and add some stock photos but Stephenie thinks about your business needs, develops messaging, and builds something special that really represents you. She is my go-to for quality web design projects.
I would highly recommend Stephenie if you’re looking for someone with impeccable integrity that you can count on to co-create your brand that’s in alignment with your soul.
Mark Risius, Wow Love Carpet Cleaning
I have used Stephenie for my business, webcomic, and art websites. The design is superb, top notch, clean and user friendly. The branding she has done for me is better than I could’ve hoped for. Working with her is comfortable and easy. She is very professional and responsive and I feel like she felt my vision and made it a reality. Thank you Stephanie!
Gary Friedman, CMO
Stephenie is one of the brightest Marketing Designers I have ever had the pleasure of working with. When it comes to Amazing, Awe inspiring design, Stephenie is definitely in a league of her own. Not only does she have innovative, beautiful designs, but she possesses the power of being able to construct awesome written content coupled with persuasive, successful Marketing ideas. She has the right fortitude to succeed at anything she puts her mind to and I foresee her being a huge success in all future endeavors.
Jon Kelly, Founder of Kelly Klee Private Insurance
I would highly recommend Stephenie’s services. She created the logo for Kelly Klee Private Insurance, which truly reflects the quality, mission, and feeling we wanted to convey. She was able to take a vague thought about what we wanted and quickly turn it into an iconic representation of our brand.
John Graham, Little Giant Marketing
Stephenie is extremely reliable and will always surprise you with incredible projects. Projects always go smooth when counting on Stephenie’s organizational skills and delivery. My favorite part about working with Stephenie is how much she cares about you. She is very respective of your time, thoughts, doubts and ideas. It’s fun knowing she’ll always be thinking outside of the box and come up with ingenious content and designs. Especially since Stephenie is a one stop shop for all type of marketing. I’m so happy to reconnect with Stephenie after a year because I know she cares about my success and will be there to help me and my business grow!
Pablo Brown-Rodriguez, Geriatric Care Management
It was incredible to find Stephenie. I don’t believe we could have found a better match for our company and gain the quality and passion for the project that Stephenie brought to the table. I highly recommend working with her in whatever capacity!
Pamela Hernandez, Thrive Personal Fitness
When you are growing your own business, you wear all the hats. Sometimes you get so wrapped up in all of the day to day responsibilities it’s hard to take time out to look at the big picture. Working with Stephenie helped me step back and look at my business through a fresh set of eyes. Her expertise in graphic design helped me see what my web site was missing and how I can continue to make my site better and more representative of who I am and what I do. She also helped me focus on my ideal client and get a more detailed profile of my target market allowing me to tailor my services and message to those I wish to attract. The day to day still has to get done but, thanks to Stephenie, I have a clearer direction on how to keep my business moving forward.
Angela Rose, Founder of PAVE
Words cannot express how much we appreciate your time and talent! You are amazing and your efforts are making an impact nationally! I am so blessed to know you!
Seth Perler, Executive Function Coach for Struggling students
Stephenie is absolutely AMAZING to work with. I’ve had other designers and branding specialists who didn’t listen to me, and it was so frustrating to feel not listened to! It wasted my time, money and energy. Stephenie is a phenomenal listener. She takes the time and energy to listen to what my goals are, deeply analyzed my site thoroughly, became crystal clear on my needs, made informed recommendations clearly and then executed efficiently, creatively and professionally. I couldn’t be happier!
Jamie DuBose, Marketing strategist
Whenever I need to get massive business clarity in minimal time, I always go to Stephenie for her business brilliance. As a boutique marketing consultancy, it’s important for all aspects of my company to be cohesive and clear – from our web design and branding to the internal business goals that are inspiring growth and attracting new clients. And working with Stephenie ensures that our business goals are reflected in our company at every angle – from web design to marketing assets & branding.
I will bring a fuzzy idea or big hairy problem to her, and at the end of our session, she has addressed the root causes and we’ve mapped out a solution that not only tackles the specific problem, but that is in alignment with my business vision and core values. I can’t recommend Stephenie enough if you’re looking for someone who can deliver effective, actionable business coaching with strategic marketing and branding support.
Lisa Nelson, project manager
I started my virtual dietetic business in 2007. In 2009 I began providing virtual services and project management for other health professionals. This lead to a new business branch that continued to evolve and before I knew it my “old” brand/message no longer matched the service I was providing nor the clients I served. I needed a complete brand makeover!
Stephenie and her team did a wonderful job providing initial design options based off our branding brief and then made design revisions until the final was just as needed. I loved how they stuck to the initial timeline and kept what can be an overwhelming process moving forward.
I highly recommend Stephenie to clients and colleagues for their design needs. I’ve worked with her not only on my own re-brand, but on several other client projects. She always delivers!
Lisa Hunter, sacred house
Hands-down, Stephenie creates gorgeous designs and branding. My business already had a good “look”, but Stephenie’s expert eye took it to the next level, and I’m always eager to hand out my marketing pieces because they look so good! Not only did she create a visually beautiful brand for me, the process of working with her brought about new aha’s and insight as to the value of what it is that I offer.
Stephenie not only brought impeccable design abilities, she also brought the strategy and coaching that I needed to get more clarity on my services and the most fun and effective ways to get them out into the world. Highly recommend!
Eleni Andreadis, CT
When I started working with Stephenie, I was at a crossroads in my life and business. I’d had a tough 18 months, since my Mom died. I felt like I’d made some inauthentic business decisions while I was grieving and wasn’t the same person anymore. I felt confused about how to shift my business into something I loved vs. something I dreaded.
Stephenie was able to ask the right questions and give me her insights that guided me back to my true self. I loved the concentrated amount of time we spent working through this and brainstorming. Stephenie had the ability to see the connections of the various aspects of my business and what I love and how to tie them together. That was so helpful to me.
I loved her idea of a Core Anchoring Concept to use as an umbrella for all my business products and services. That was a lightbulb moment for me. We also came up with a roadmap for going forward and some action steps to get started. I have much more clarity now and a sense of peace in having a plan.
I would recommend this process to anyone who is stuck, feels disconnected from who they are or looking to go in a new direction. Stephenie is an incredibly intuitive and skilled guiding and leading you to find the answers you need to move forward. This has been one of the best investments I’ve made.
Chad DiPrince, Kelly Klee
Stephenie is a highly skilled and creative website designer with proven experience in both online marketing, content creation, and brand strategy. She’s incredibly efficient, always delivering quality work on time, with excellent attention to detail. Stephenie would be a great asset to any team, company, or marketing efforts if you’re looking to grow your business and expand your reach!
Dr. Stacy Mobley, Bliss Natural Medicine
Working with Stephenie and her team was such a smooth and interactive experience. My questions were always answered within a great time frame. She received feedback and gracefully. I loved that the package included practical components that are needed to have a complete website, especially when offering Health & Lifestyle medical coaching. I would happily recommend the Jumpstart package to others.
Stephenie is the kind of person everyone wishes they could work with. She’s brilliant, patient, determined, and amazingly talented. Her ability to understand vision and turn it into something remarkable is unmatched. Her personality makes the entire experience enjoyable, uplifting and inspiring. If you get an opportunity to work with her, do yourself a favor, seize it!
Cheryl Chavarria, The Convivial Woman
If you want a thoughtful, thorough, sensitive to the client’s needs designer and branding expert to accompany your cause-driven, entrepreneurial efforts, Stephenie is the one to call.
Working with her has been smooth sailing for me and my business. She guided me through the process of relaunching my website, evaluated my brand and whipped up a plan that provided me with the support and visuals I needed to accomplish a smooth transition. Her talents are real, her timing impeccable, and professionalism unforgettable. Working with her has been and will continue to be a delight.
Grace Keohohou, President and Co-founder DSWA
I have been blessed to work with Stephenie and her team of talented professionals. Stephenie has the ability to take a concept and bring it to life, make it better than you ever thought it could be, and with incredible attention to detail. I must share that what impresses me the most about her work is that she cares – she puts her heart into every project as if it were her own. Our website, www.DSWA.org and our blog, www.MyDSWA.org were redesigned and completely upgraded by her and her team. I am thrilled with the results! The upgrades and improvements have positively impacted our bottom line and the growth we are experiencing as an organization. She took our branding, web presence, and overall approach to the next level of excellence and I highly recommend her personally and professionally.
Ben Wills, Creator of Ontolo.com
Stephenie has an uncommon combination of self-awareness, empathy, great design taste, and business acumen.
I’ve known Stephenie, both personally and professionally, for several years now. We’ve both helped each other with our businesses along the way – from technical server configuration and programming, to design, to marketing strategy.
She’s someone I trust to handle certain parts of my own business (where I very, very rarely would trust someone to do so), plan on working with her for quite some time, and would be very comfortable trusting her with even more of my business if the situation presented itself. If you have the chance to work with her, I highly recommend doing so.
I love working with Stephenie she is so generous with her knowledge and no question is a dumb question with her, she takes her time to tend to even the smallest detail. She is very creative and the girl got spunk, so I know that when I contact Stephenie I get the support and straight answers that I need.
Claudine Dagit, Personal Chef
Girl, I LOVE everything about you and your business. Many people can have a design business, but what makes you special is that you’ve got the whole package… you’re smart, personable, creative, talented, reliable, hardworking, honest and timely. You got it all girl, and people see that and what to be a part of what you’re doing and support you by passing on your information!

Diane whiddon, CO
Because she's so dedicated to her own work, I always trust that the advice and wisdom I’m getting from Stephenie is exactly what I need to hear, uninfluenced by her own agenda. This alone is worth its weight in gold in a coach, and I so value the clean, compassionate, patient space she brings whenever we have a session.
Stephenie's work has helped me push my edges and overcome some major mental and emotional stumbling blocks so I can show up in the world in bigger ways, take more risks, and do more of my work in the world. I cannot recommend her coaching and approach to self-growth more highly.
Barry Soloway, CO
This was deeply personal work but Stephenie brings a tremendous presence to her coaching that provided a safe and accepting environment to work in. I can’t recommend her highly enough. Stephenie dug deep so we could focus on the real sticking points, came up with a plan for moving forward, and was there by phone and e-mail to support me. In particular, the ideas we generated weren’t just “do this/ do that”.
Stephenie went deeper and we identified ways to foster and nurture creativity… I was also blown away by the acupressure Stephenie brought in. It was a simple and highly effective method.
Krista May, CANADA
I am so grateful for you!! You have a way of helping me find my way back to myself, and getting me back on track/aligned. And part of that is facing into the not so pretty stuff… the fear, anger, judgment, resentment, doubt, hopelessness… but also beyond that, and reconnecting with my truest desires. It feels so good to NOT be afraid of my own dark, ugly stuff, and also to fully own up to what I want most and working towards it, instead of trading in my sacred valuable time for money and nothing else. So THANK YOU. AGAIN AND AGAIN. I know that there is so much more to come on this journey, tough stuff and amazing stuff... but I finally feel confident enough in myself, trusting myself fully, to be able to continue from here. And I have you to thank for that. You seriously have a life-saving gift, and I’m SO happy that I found you a few years ago, and decided to work with you again this time. You really help me feel like not only that anything is possible, but also empowered to work towards it and trust myself to navigate it.
Adlin Cedeno, CA
Before I started working with Stephenie I felt completely lost. I knew I was meant to do something greater but I just didn’t know which direction I should go. I had so many ideas and was afraid of making the wrong decision. This unknowing and fear really led me to feeling trapped. I needed help pinpointing what my true purpose was and the things I was truly passionate about. Enter Stephenie.
When I saw Stephenie’s website and read more about the type of people she worked with I found myself relating to everything that was listed. The problems that she helped clients with described completely described my situation at the time, and the solutions she offered were exactly what I needed. As I read her own personal story I felt like she understood where I was coming from because she had been there. I knew at that moment I had to submit an application to work with her.
I have to say I’m truly happy I listened to my intuition because not only did Stephenie help pinpoint my passions, but she also helped me get started on creating my business. She is someone who truly cares about her clients’ well-being and success. In between our scheduled calls she would check-in to see if I needed support, and provided me with the resources I needed. I really appreciated her experiences and knowledge in getting through this time of uncertainty.
I now know what my passions and purpose are in life and am excited to continue on this path. I have the clarity I so desired before I started this journey. I feel free because I have a deeper sense of self and purpose. I would completely recommend Stephenie for anyone who wants to feel a sense of freedom, purpose, and the desire to live your best life.
I was going through all of my notebooks from last year, and I could literally feel the changes happening over the course of the year, especially around the time that I was working with you. I just wanted to send you a quick email and say thank you. I have never been happier, or accepted and appreciated myself so deeply and had so much compassion and patience for myself. There have been so many instances where what I have learned in the past year has really been put to the test and ultimately changed the course of my life in such an incredible, freeing way. I am so so so grateful for the things you’ve taught me. I wish I could hug you, seriously!
Kristina Dahlgren, HI
I was not happy with my life the way it was. I disliked my job, wished I had done things differently, wished I could do things differently, and thought it was too late to make the huge changes that were necessary to live my life following my passions. I felt as if I had missed my chance and that to change things now would take too long, be too difficult, or just not possible. It was Stephenie’s blog post “Three Things You MUST DO to Feel Joyful” that started it all. After reading that post I knew that the only thing stopping me was me. I worked through the exercises in [Mastery] and started taking the steps necessary to change the direction my life is headed. Since starting this program I am on my way to obtaining my bachelors degree, I have reinvested in my own business, and started really focusing on my fitness. I am much happier and much more productive; laziness is a thing of the past!
I like that the exercises in this program really force you to dig deep and evaluate what is important to you and what areas of your life need attention and development. I also love that this program is directed at both mind and body as they both must work together to keep you happy and healthy.
My biggest take-away from this program has been a renewed energy and zest for life. When you are honoring yourself and doing the things that make you happy it’s easy to find motivation and forward momentum.
Everyone should do this program even if they feel that they are happy and satisfied with their life because maybe there’s something they’re missing, something they could be doing differently or better. This program also focuses on setting goals which is extremely important to keep moving forward.
Thank you Stephenie, for creating this program, answering my questions, allowing me to pick your brain, and most importantly becoming my friend.
Ashley Gwilliam, TX
Stephenie designed [her program] to empower you to take control of your life in a way that’s more fun than scary. Before working with her, I felt stuck and afraid to take action. I was just coming off a quarter-life crisis, and knew that having my own business that would lead to location-independence was something I HAD TO create for myself! I had invested a lot of time in determining what this business would be, how I could best utilize my talents and ‘researching’ what other industry leaders were doing. But I was stuck in studying mode! I realized I had some deep-seated beliefs that were holding me back and on some level didn’t really believe in myself. But with this program, she walked me step-by-step through the process of creating a life I’m excited to live!
Through our calls I realized none of the “problems” I saw were as big as they seemed; the fearful thoughts holding me back occurred when I was worrying about the future or reliving the past. Having Stephenie hold a safe space for me to pour my heart out and gently guide me back to the present moment was AMAZING! Just having someone who had been there before and gone through the emotional struggles of creating a business to support me and give me feedback was SUCH a relief!!! And nothing was off the table! When I was having relationship problems that were weighing too heavy on me to talk about anything else, she calmly helped me sort through my true desires and fears.
But, I think the biggest thing Stephenie helped me with is coming to a place where I believe in myself again. After feeling bad about myself for changing directions so many times, she helped me come to a place where I now know in my bones that my life is of my own creating; I make the rules, no one else! There is no “right way” to do things, and knowing that is freedom.
Stephenie, I am SO grateful for the wisdom, time and energy you have shared with me! Thank you.
Jennifer Miller, TX
If you’d have asked me when I first started what made me happy, would make me happy and what I feel like I should be doing I would have said ‘no idea’ and truly meant it. However, now—even only being half way—the principles behind [the program] and lessons in the modules are in the forefront of my daily thoughts and actions and I’ve come to realize what I’m truly passionate about. Between the program, articles and inspirations, and the links to other great motivators, you’ve planted a seed that has sent this woman on a journey of self-discovery. Thank you for that!
Jennifer McAleese, NY
Stephenie’s course is a life-changer. My advice – don’t even think twice, sign up now! When I read about Stephenie’s program, something inside me told me I just had to do it, even though I can honestly say that I was happy and content with my life when I started this journey. But, what I’ve experienced over the six weeks of committing to Stephenie’s program is just how amazingly ROCKING life can be when you come from a place of unshakable joy. You don’t need some big huge underlying problem to fix or be completely unhappy with your life to experience radical and transformational mindset shifts, inner peace, and the ability to cultivate positive relationships and lovingly release those that no longer serve you. With Stephenie’s guidance, motivation, and insights, I’ve made changes that have completely transformed my life. Stephenie’s program has helped me figure out where my life was out of harmony, define what I am most passionate about (what “lights a fire in me”), and then set manageable goals to help me achieve my dreams. People around me have noticed how “happy” I’ve been lately and I can 100% say that I have never felt more happy, authentic, confident, and healthy as I do now. I am so grateful to Stephenie for helping me begin this journey of self discovery.
Stephenie is awesome at answering questions with exactly the information I need. A new experience for me as well, and so incredibly valuable. I don’t have to wade through stuff I won’t use or that doesn’t make sense for me to find one grain of something that might work. I have covered more ground on the journey toward having a “real” business in the last six weeks working with Stephenie than I have in the last four years combined. Thanks Stephenie!
I am honored and excited to be one of the editors and assistants in the creation of her program. When Stephenie first presented me with the idea of a program that would help people change their dissatisfied, unfulfilling life into one filled with passion, purpose, and JOY, I knew it would be a fantastic program.
As we moved into the content creation and editing phases, it became quite clear to me that this program is so much more than that – it is TRULY a LIFE-CHANGING program. This work will take you on a beautiful journey to the life that you only used to dream of living. Right now, those feelings you have of being stuck spinning your wheels in a life that isn’t serving you.You’re ready for a change, but you don’t know where to start well, this is it. This work will provide you with the exact tools that you need to figure out what you REALLY want out of life, formulate a plan to make it happen, and actually DO it.
Don’t waste any more time being unfulfilled. Dive right in, and discover how to gain full control of your future. The only thing you have to lose is your self-doubt, insecurities, and unhappiness.
Kylie Cork, Australia
I discovered self care and personal development work in September last year and my life changed. I found you and your website a few months later and was immediately drawn to how open and inspirational you are. I started following you and your daily life tips are still a huge highlight of my day.
I literally signed up for your Mastery course on the first day. The email was waiting for me when I awoke at 5am, I signed up at 7am when I got to work and I haven’t regretted a moment.
As I live in Australia I have trouble with joining the live calls, even though you are the only coach I know of who alters the days and time to try and accommodate everyone (seriously, amazing of you.) Knowing this I tend to rely on the Facebook group and email for support. Every single time, and I mean every single time I have needed support or even just needed to vent I have found it to be a safe, supportive place. I read everything that happens, even if I’m sometimes too shy to post.
The best part of Mastery for me was knowing I was in a safe space, that I could go at my own speed and I could ask for and receive support that was tailored for me. The worksheets and the videos were easy to understand, I know I’ll be referring back to them. I feel safe and confident knowing you have my back, Stephenie. I already know I’ll be resigning with you.
Stephenie has a special gift. Her compassion, drive, passion, and communication skills are beyond measure. 5 stars isn’t enough! Before working with Stephenie I had a hard time prioritizing myself. My family came first and I suffered because of it. And now they still come first, but I’m able to give them more of myself because I’ve learned to do the things that make me happy. And we know if mama ain’t happy ain’t no one happy :). Since working with her, she has helped me find a job that I love and am truly happy. She really knows how to listen. She is kind but also knows how to give that tough love. She is open and vulnerable, and doesn’t hold back. A true gem. No regrets, only gratitude that she’s come into my life.
Stacie MAhoe, HI
Stephenie is one of those people whose excellence spills into those around her. Her passion, her drive, her positivity, her direction, and her confidence are highly contagious! Simply being around her, her work, and her “awesome” ignites excellence in your life.
That, combined with your commitment to her step-by-step program, makes reaching new heights simple and achievable! Feel less stressed and more success simply by following the bite-sized, easy-to-use guides and instructions in this program.
Each step in the right direction gets you more excited and more motivated about what you CAN accomplish. Next thing you know, you’re taking strides like you never even imagined before. In just a short period of time, life begins looking different (and better) than it used to.
It’s not always “easy” but it’s SO worth it! Stephenie takes you through every step of the way and helps you break through the big obstacles and challenges that have been holding you back all this time. It’s such an amazing journey, one I hope you choose to take!
Stephenie is the best coach that I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with (and I've worked with quite a few!). She takes time to truly understand my issues, and she can literally FEEL how I’m feeling, which makes me feel very supported & heard. I love her progressive techniques & suggestions used during our sessions; it’s clear she’s very invested in my personal development and wants to do whatever she can to help me succeed.
YOU are Amazing! I am still in shock that you give so much of yourself and what you have learned and share it so generously. This program found me at exactly the right moment. Your business program is exactly what I need at just the right time. I just have to tell you what a Spark of bright light this has been for me. I am making huge, scary shifts in my life, I am shaking it ALL up… everything to live a life I love, so Thank You for following your passion and helping others find theirs!
It is hard for me to put into words just what a transformative experience it has been (and continues to be) to work with Stephenie! Before I began the Journey Mapping program and coaching sessions, fear had kept me questioning if I could speak up and used my voice to share my ideas. I not only felt invisible, but I had serious doubts of I could even make a difference in the world, period. I’d ask myself “How do I have anything decent to contribute?” But like many of us experience, there was a breaking point in my life (not even a year ago!) that basically had me saying NO more! This is when I decided that I was going take the risk and CHOOSE to not run anymore and to go to the next level in all areas of my life.
Stephenie just has a way of making you feel like she gets it. I strongly believe it is because of her own lived experience with trauma and having to reorient to everything as she knew it, that gives her a unique perspective. Stephenie’s coaching style (and Journey Mapping process) are not only direct, but simultaneously gentle and kind. Furthermore, she customizes the support based on the goals you want to achieve. For example, the Acupressure sessions were a huge turning point for me and Stephenie guided me every step of the way!
But the most significant quality about her for me is, whether Stephenie is helping me navigate through grief and life’s challenges, or on how to put forth the dream I’ve had since I was 11 into the world, her collaborative approach has made the (really!) messy parts of my journey slightly easier to navigate! But she doesn’t mislead or sugar-coat the gut-wrenching nature of this work, or the level of commitment that’s required. In order to assist you in getting what you want, she knows just how to push you beyond the edge of what you think is possible or doable.
I can tell you that every tear, angry outburst and rant, and the belly laughs (that ensued from crazy analogies), all within the same 10 minutes at times, have been absolutely worth it! And while it is unique to each individual, I have been able to make more progress and changes in certain areas though working with Stephenie, then I have in the last decade.
Jennifer Twardowski, CA
If you asked me two months ago what topic I wanted to base my business on, I wouldn’t have been able to tell you. I felt this strong need to create a business, but I was overwhelmed with ideas. Stephenie really helped me to filter out which ideas were just interests and which were my main passions.
What I’m most thankful for is the weekly to-do lists she provided me after each of our sessions to help me stay on track to getting one step completed before I jumped to the next thing. I know that if I tried to start my business on my own, I would’ve overlooked SO many things and burn myself out. I would’ve kept pushing myself to get things done, but then worried that I forgot or did something wrong.
With her guidance and support, my business is up and running and I have created my Individual Coaching Package and two Transformational Quick-Guides. I’m currently coaching my own clients and there are several other products and packages in the making.
The best part is that, by working with Stephenie, I have been able to overcome my own mental blocks so that I now feel so much more in-tune with my own creative flow. I’m no longer just sitting around wanting to create and do something but unsure if that’s “right” or good enough, or creating blocks by telling myself “I don’t know how to do that” or “I can’t do that”. Now I’m just letting my own creative spirit flow. I’m freely expressing my ideas… and myself… without all the hesitation.
If you’re really wanting to create something new, discover your true passions, or simply just feel more reconnected to your true self but you just can’t seem to figure out how to get there, then Stephenie is your go-to gal. She will definitely sort out all those crazy thoughts in your brain and set you on the right track so you can create your own joy in your life that you so desperately crave. Stephenie, thank you so much for helping me through this process! I am eternally grateful!

I got more done in three months than I had the entire previous year! Stephenie has a wonderful way of diving deep to the core of what’s holding you back from your goals. Before Amp Your Awesome, I suffered from extreme procrastination, perfectionism, and “analysis paralysis”. Stephenie helped me uncover the root of these issues – fear – and gave me advice and insightful wisdom on how to work through my fears. I got more done in three months than I had the entire previous year! I was tired of not making any progress towards my goals, but now I’m much farther along than I’ve ever been before.
If you want to work with someone who will hold you accountable and help you make your dreams a reality, then I highly recommend hiring Stephenie as a coach.

Stephenie is amazing at seeing you for who you truly are, beneath all the inauthentic personas we wear and display out in the world. She’s one of those gentle, powerful souls who seems to evoke your best self, simply by being in her presence, you know? If anyone can, Stephenie will be able to bring out your best self and bring your entire life into alignment; relationships, heart and soul, deeply meaningful work, and more. I think she’s fantastic. And I think you’ll agree.
Hadley Unger, Warren Village Program Manager
Stephenie hosts a wide variety of empowerment and action-oriented Life Skills classes at Warren Village. Each time she teaches here I expect residents to come to me afterwards to tell me about their renewed sense of hope in reaching their goals. They comment on how good of a listener Stephenie is and how they truly felt heard during their time together.
There are a few residents who sign up for every class Stephenie has on our calendar simply because of the way Stephenie guides and empowers them in each session. They always leave feeling better and more uplifted than they did before.
Stephenie’s classes are an invaluable supplement to Warren Village’s self-sufficiency program. I see our partnership flourishing in the years to come as she successfully builds healthy, sustainable relationships with each woman she encounters here. When single parents move in to Warren Village they are required to set goals for their time in our program and as they begin to break down the unique barriers they face, I can rely on Stephenie to encourage them to maintain ambition and hope for their families’ futures.

Thank You!!! I’m feeling exceedingly grateful for finding you and your programs. Although I haven’t crossed every T or dotted every I in the material (yet!), I know that there is a wealth of information there that I will continue to refer to and benefit from for quite some time. You are an amazing young woman and it’s an honor to not only know you as my coach, but as my friend. Thank you for sharing your brains, creativity and vulnerability. You make me stronger and braver and happier through witnessing your growth!
My life was in chaos and Stephenie's Journey Mapping course was just what I needed to navigate huge changes in my life. I had recently had a major, much needed, upheaval in my life: I quit my job, moved to a different state, ended a relationship and was trying to start a career in my passion of sustainability. I knew all of these choices were right for me but I felt so lost in the midst of all that change. Journey Mapping gave me the structure, encouragement, and tools to navigate this huge transition in my life. I would highly recommend the course to anyone who knows deep down in their gut that they desire a change in their life. It's a phenomenal, life changing experience!

Working with Stephenie as a mentor and coach has been one of the best things I’ve done for myself. It's been life changing. Stephenie is the most caring and compassionate (yet stern!) coach I've ever had. She won't allow you to stay stuck wherever you are. She'll make sure you're stepping into your purpose—who you're called to be—and she’ll guide you through that process in every way.

I had the most incredible breakthrough while doing the exercises of [Mastery]. I had been asking myself the wrong questions. I thought when starting the program, I was going to be taught strategies to work more efficiently and focus on what was working in my business to find my passion again but what I found and learned was – it’s time to move on. When I arrived at this realization, I felt more free and inspired than I have in years if not ever.
For the first time in my life, I’m saying “no” to the things that I thought I “should” be doing. I have discovered strengths and passions that need (not should) to be put in to play in my life so that I will be of service and be fulfilled at the same time.
[Mastery] is truly the foundation to my personal and my new business growth. It’s the one thing (so far) that was missing from any other coaching program I have completed.
As a result of taking [Mastery], I learned to pay attention to my intuition regularly. I seriously thought I always was! Stephenie gave me permission to focus on just me. It was both the module work and coaching calls that made me truly slow down and pay attention. I know it sounds cliche to trust your intuition, but intellectually knowing to listen and being asked and coached to do so made all the difference.
I would recommend this program to anyone who is ready to really look at themselves honestly. To anyone interested in doing the work they are meant to do in this lifetime, Stephenie’s [Mastery] program is where you want to start. I have never been in a coaching group where you have this much access to your coach! You will receive guidance and support from both her and your [Mastery] group in a safe and loving space.

I’m so grateful to have worked with Stephenie as a part of her coaching program. Prior to our time together, I was unsure of what I wanted to “do with my life”. I felt unfulfilled and unsatisfied in my career, and had some ideas of some of my passions, but I wasn’t sure how to incorporate them into my life to make a living. After our 12 weeks together, I feel confident in moving forward in the direction of my dreams. I am so thankful to be able to work towards a satisfying, rewarding business that I feel is my life’s work.

I just wanted to thank you all and of course, especially Stephenie. Because of you, I stopped letting fear blocking me from doing things. I created my first free video series and people comments are just awesome. I was invited to the first french wellness summit as an expert, and my interview got wonderful comments saying that everything flowed naturally, that I’m natural and exude well-being, that I’m full of humanity, and that was I say is captivating, bright, clear & speaks directly to the heart. Obviously, I cried.
That’s what happens when you’re living your purpose: people respond to what you do and who you are. In 9 years in corporate, believe me, nobody talked about my work or myself like that! I wouldn’t be living all this without this space. I’m so grateful. If anyone here is still afraid of living their purpose, I hope this message inspire them to take the plunge!
I can’t remember feeling such a sense of excitement for my life before in this way. I have literally been up at night not being able to get to sleep since I have so many ideas and things I am excited about learning right now. It also feels much more balanced too. I am more in touch with my intuition than I have been before and it’s bringing me to exciting things and places in my life. Stephenie… Your passion and genuine desire to help us all achieve unshakable joy really shows through. Your commitment to that with your personal encouragement and support truly make the program what it is. Wow. Thank you very much for sharing your self, your journey and being so open.

When I started out this year, I decided it would be all about expansion for me. A lot of that had (has) to do with stepping out of my comfort zones and letting my true self shine. Like they say- careful what you ask for! lol- but it has been amazing as I look back on how much I’ve grown (expanded) in so many ways- ways I couldn’t even imagine in the beginning of the year. I owe so much of this to Mastery (and Stephenie!). This has been such a supportive place and it’s allowed me to really feel comfortable in letting my voice be heard.

Before we started working together, I was struggling with what direction to move in to start my business, mainly. I had no idea what to do even do to start, or how to market myself. I was going in circles with my thoughts and ideas and there was really no movement. I started to feel overwhelmed/frozen (normal for me at that point) and thought it wouldn’t happen.
My biggest takeaway from our time together is that I can turn something that FEELS huge into smaller steps and conquer each step towards the bigger goal. I felt so relieved when I filed for my LLC and created my business cards. I took away that my passion around my purpose is what’s going to drive my business, not my fear or my wanting to make money.
I have become much more focused and calm around the process. I have become more patient with myself, and when I am faced with something I don’t know how to do (like creating the website…) I am more solution-oriented now than before, where I may have said, “I just won’t bother creating one”. I have more clarity around who I am and what I’m offering, what my product actually is. That has created a lot more peace for me, and more awareness about what it is I’m actually wanting to do.
I experienced you as having a terrific blend of patience, honesty, and true personal investment in me as your client. I felt you were complete and thorough in your response where you knew the answer. That kind of support is really important. I also believe you empower your clients by giving them the responsibility to reach out when they need help and by trusting that they will do what they say they are going to do. You have a great sense of how to hold people accountable without them necessarily realizing that’s what you’re doing. I believe you’re doing your clients a huge service by putting the onus on them to be in communication when something comes up. You are also extremely approachable, friendly, solution-oriented, and your willingness to share your own mistakes and lessons really made a difference for me.
I felt totally responsible for my own success while knowing you were behind me and supporting me. I think you have created a really great coaching program in that I always knew as your client where I stood with your availability to me and that I could count on hearing back from you.

I decided to do a VIP day with Stephenie (the day we launched my website!) and it was the best investment I made in a long time. After working with someone via online avenues and email, I was super excited to meet Stephenie in person. Stephenie is the most down to earth person, and I felt instantly connected with her as if we were friends for years. My time with Stephenie flew by. She was amazingly open with any question I asked and gave suggestions that helped me upon my return home. I came home with a wealth of information and plans: there are the tangible things, like a strategy for the next 6-12 months to get my new business off the ground this year; and then there are the intangible things, like her support and her belief in me that I can change careers.
I’m the type of person who operates off of goals and lists and I like to know exactly how things work. Stephenie never cringed at the amount of questions I asked. She understood my need to feel confident with operating a new website and designing a new business plan. I loved that she took notes the entire time we worked together so that I didn’t necessarily have to, so that I could focus on the thought process. She emailed me pages of notes. My time with her was her top priority and that is how she made me feel… like a VIP.
I have a list of priorities to work on and I have a schedule for those priorities. And one of the biggest takeaways, I have Stephenie’s support to help hold me accountable.
I would highly recommend any of Stephenie’s programs. I think they are all important. I can’t wait to see her new programs launch. You can be sure, I will be the first to sign up
