Leader. Fighter. Survivor.

Stephanie’s passion for empowerment is derived from the challenges she’s overcome throughout her career. Beyond fighting to break the glass ceiling of aviation leadership, Stephanie is a breast cancer survivor. These experiences, combined with her dedication to bringing neuroscience into business, inform the content of her speaking engagements.

When not uncovering new opportunities for Wheels Up or working to inspire America’s business leaders, Stephanie spends as much time with her family as possible. Her husband, Sam, is a constant source of support, and her daughter, Brittany, is a constant source of pride.
