Hi, I'm Stephanie! I started working for Varsity Brands as a UDA Staff Instructor in 2008 and continued to be a part of UDA’s collegiate camp staff for 13 years.

Outside of dance, I LOVE to cook and bake and have friends/family over to catch up. I consider buffalo sauce and cheese a main food group. My biggest fear is bed bugs. Christmas/Fourth of July tie for my favorite holiday and if I could shop at any 3 places for the rest of my life it would be Target, Nordstrom & Lululemon. <3
