But we’re here to put your minds at ease.

WE KNOW

After spending more than 7 years in corporate and small business finance, Stephanie started Steadfast in 2011 because of a deep passion for business owners and helping them achieve their dreams. Growing up in a family of entrepreneurs and running a few businesses herself, she realized that “bookkeeper” is just one of the many hats business leaders wear in their roles. Since then, she’s worked with small businesses to emphasize the importance of bookkeeping, maximize profits, create budgets and generally provide peace of mind that the business finances are in order.  

When she’s not crunching numbers, she enjoys spending time with her husband of 13 years and their 5 year old daughter. You can find them at a local beach, visiting Disney World or serving together in the production ministry at their local church.
