Steph is the founder of WedLocal and has several years of experience specializing in customer relations. She has worked in retail and corporate environments. She has always taken great pride in her work and dedicated herself to becoming the best in her positions. Over the years, she discovered that she has a passion for teaching and training; she gets satisfaction out of a job well done while instilling her passion in others.
One thing that has always been the driving force in her life is working in an industry that inspires her and keeps her motivated. Not that many years ago, Steph was pretty much a “professional bridesmaid” think 27 Dresses but not quite to that extent. It was then that she discovered how much she loves the wedding industry.
What started out as her natural willingness to help others, in this case, her bride-to-be friends, her outgoing personality propelled her into communicating with vendors on their behalf, establishing relationships within the bridal community. From there, a lightbulb went off, and she realized that she could put her skills to good use, and WedLocal was born. She has taken her relationships with vendors and curated an intimate yet exciting wedding expo with purpose.
Her heart is her number one driver and when you come to her events whether it’s online or in-person you can feel it!
