A native of New Jersey's Shore, Stevie began working in the restaurant business at age 13. Starting to work at a young age instilled a strong work ethic in her, and being in customer service most of her life gives her a myriad of skills, including patience, mindfulness, communication skills and tenacity. After attending the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia, Stevie followed her love of sailing, diving and coastal living to San Diego, where she met her husband and they started a family. They have three children, a Weimaraner, and a cat. While primarily a stay-at-home mom for the past eight years, Stevie also worked for ProFlowers and became a notary public, a loan signing agent and studied real estate at Mesa College.
