Steph is ABC2's newest employee. Joining the team in January 2014 as the Director, West Coast Operations, Steph is based out of San Diego, CA. She is charged with continuing the success of Over the Edge for Brain Cancer (http://www.otesandiego.org/home.shtml) and forging strategic partnerships on the West Coast to support the advancement of treatments for people with brain cancer.
When the opportunity arose to join the ABC2 team, Steph eagerly jumped at the chance. With her non-profit and entrepreneurial-focused business background, Steph knew that the venture philanthropy group was the perfect fit for her. After completing her MBA at Arizona State University, Steph began working in the non-profit sector. She has worked for several non-profit organizations, including The Wellness Community - Arizona and Meals-on-Wheels Greater San Diego, Inc. Specifically, her time with the Beer for Brains Foundation was the first introduction she received to working with the brain cancer community. She finds the community of survivors, researchers, surgeons, donors and volunteers to be extraordinarily kind and passionate, and is grateful to join an extremely talented team working to elongate the lives of survivors living with brain cancer.
When Steph isn't working on creating new partnerships, she enjoys spending time with friends, family and her two dogs: Oliver (Maltese) and Zen (English Bulldog). She enjoys yoga and bootcamp, continuing her sommelier and culinary arts studies, and traveling.
