Stephanie started as a poll worker at the age of 16 working the iVotronic machine. She later began working at the main office during the 2014 election where her years of customer service as a manager allowed her to answer phone calls, register voters, or answer any other questions a voter may have when they are welcomed at the front desk. After a successful election, Stephanie became a permanent employee in 2015 and is now the assistant for the Voter Registration Department, Vote by Mail / List Maintenance Coordinator, and Candidate Qualifying Officer. Outside of the elections office Stephanie likes spending time with her husband Mateo, family and friends. Stephanie has a love for photography and can be found exploring different parts of the area with her camera on the weekend.
