The FPA-NENY Board of Directors hired Stephanie as the Chapter Admin in August 2002. Though the position was supposed to be a 15 – 20 hour/month gig, it actually was the beginning of her second career.

Stephanie has a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance from The Pennsylvania State University. Following a position at a commercial bank, she joined the Farm Credit Administration (FCA) as an examiner in 1986.  As an examiner in the Albany field office, Stephanie earned her Commissioning in 1991 and was responsible for leading audits of member institutions. In 1995, FCA realigned and closed the Albany office. Stephanie elected to take a severance package and stay home to raise her newborn son, followed eventually by another son and a princess caboose.

Stephanie is also Exec Director for the Estate Planning Council of Eastern New York and the Foundation for World Education. This second career was a blessing, as it allowed her to raise the kids and attend all their events, as well as doing a ton of volunteer work in her community. It’s been a great ride. A new empty nester, Stephanie now focuses her laser-like attention on her husband, Jim, who is not thrilled with his new reality.
