Stephanie decided to move to the Charlotte area to start a family. This was an easy decision for her growing up in a similar southern city of Dallas, Texas. Stephanie loved the fact that Charlotte and its residents had all of the charm of a southern town and the bustle of a metropolitan city that is emerging as one of the top places to live in the country. Her husband also has deep seeded roots in the Carolinas. It did not take long for Stephanie to become acclimated and involved in the community and engaged with the children of Charlotte. Stephanie, her husband, nine year old daughter and four year son love to explore the many educational and cultural activities Charlotte has to offer by frequently visiting the city’s libraries, parks and museums.
