A Louisville native, Stephanie started her real estate career in 2008, working with a group of private developers in NuLu when it was still called the East Market District. Classified as a Federally Distressed Area, the neighborhood saw over $200M in public and private investments in the years that followed. After focusing on that neighborhood for six years, she became the Managing Director of the Portland Investment Initiative, where she worked with many local and regional investors and developers to raise and deploy over $30M in investment, which was used to breathe new life into commercial buildings and renovate many abandoned single-family homes for affordable housing.

In 2019, Louisville Forward (the city's economic development and built environment arm) reached out to Stephanie about joining their team. In that role she became the city's liaison to developers, assisting with various development projects and property dispensations, including leading two high-profile RFP processes. She also focused on a variety of public development incentives, especially Tax Increment Financing. 

Stephanie earned her Sales Associate license in 2017, and has been selling houses ever since in addition to her full time job. In summer 2021, she decided to devote her full attention to her work at Kentucky Select.

She earned her Brokers' license in 2021, and launched Kentucky Select Commercial as Managing Broker shortly thereafter. She can help you navigate a variety of commercial and residential sales and acquisitions, and also offers consulting services related to public incentives such as Tax Increment Financing. 

Stephanie's biggest priorities are her family and her career - she is a mother to two young children and wife to Stephen, who is the owner of a local creative agency. On any given weekend, you can likely find them enjoying one of our city's Olmsted Parks.
