A force to be reckoned with, Stephanie unapolgetically leads the charge for self-awareness in single and dating professionals. Her mission; " There's more to being single than dating". She believes that one's single life should be a well-rounded and fulfilling experience that involves a great deal of self-awareness, sober thinking, and healthy decision making.
The year was 2014. After having escaped a "red-flag" relationship, Stephanie realized inner work needed to be done and she decided to accept responsibility and take action to endure the process of self-actualization.
Longing for the perfect community with accountability that would assist her on the journey - the need was clear. While quick solutions were being provided by dating apps and Matchmakers; there wasn't a focus soley on the importance of personal development PRIOR to dating. Singles needed a welcoming and safe enviornment to identify the roots of unhealthy decison making, and be accountable to change for the better.
Since the 2014 launch of Singles & The City - she has expanded to 5 cities in less than 4 years. Dallas, Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles, Detroit...and coming to a city near you. 4 healthy marriges have been birthed, along with hundreds of successful platonic, business and romantic relationships.
Although watching her from afar looks seamless, she’s the first to be transparent about being a full-time Entrepreneur. Stephanie has the poise and toughness to navigate all situations and the compassion to see the value and good in all situations. After having nearly losing everything – Stephanie slept on friend’s sofas and Lyfted to her own events. Her resilience opened 2 new chapters of Singles & The City in Los Angeles and Chicago.
First-generation American, with family roots from Suriname, South America – she was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. Cass Tech Alumni, Stephanie studied Anthropology and Jewish Studies at Michigan State University before moving to Dallas, TX.
She frequently enjoys public speaking engagements centered around business, self-awareness in relationships, and submitting to unforeseen processes of life.
When she's not hosting or speaking at an event around the country; you can find her strolling the aisles of Sur la Table; indulging in a new recipe, enjoying a new restaurant, barre, painting, traveling, or hanging out with her pup, Zoe St. Laurent. Stephanie is currently single, and can't wait to share her life with an incredible husband some day soon :)
You can watch Stephanie on Lifetime Television's newest reality series "Love at First Flight, Tuesdays at 9pm CST. Her Youtube show "Behind the Scenes with OhSoStefanie" is another great way to catch up on her adventures.
