Steffanie is blessed to be a mother to two amazing young boys. Through raising them, she has come to know the benefits of holistic living and truly taking care for one’s body. Family is of the utmost importance to her, and her free time is spent with her significant other, their boys, and their dog. They enjoy activities like hiking, camping, and traveling. They also love to play board games, drink tea, read, and laugh!
Steffanie left the corporate world in early 2017 to pursue work that was more aligned with her holistic lifestyle. It was fate that Dr. Jeanne and Dr. Ryan had a perfect position open for her as a receptionist in their chiropractic office in Kirkwood. It was also important to her that this work supported her passion for birth. Dr. Jeanne’s work with pregnant and breastfeeding moms not only aligns with Steffanie’s doula work she practices outside the office, but Dr. Jeanne is also a constant source of support and information for her as well.
While Steffanie works reception at 1st Step Family Wellness, she has worked as a birth doula since 2015. It has always been her passion to normalize physiological birth. Babies and mothers intrinsically know what to do during the birthing process. She is there to provide them the reassurance and tools they need to birth as they were meant. She is also there to help families embark on a journey of a healthy and mindful pregnancy. Steffanie teaches the benefits of being prepared for your optimal birth long before setting foot into the birthing space. Most of all, she wants the families that she works with to know to trust their intuition above all else.
Steffanie adores her position at 1st Step Family Wellness as well. Being able to be there to answer questions for people trying to seek natural health alternatives aligns perfectly with her passion. She enjoys interacting with patients, and helping them stay on their path to wellness.
