Why did you start Socially Steph?

For years I chased my career down Michigan Avenue in Nikes, never truly happy with where & what I was doing, but through my social media work it portrayed something vastly different. Many people thought my job looked fun or the company was fun, meanwhile I was dragging myself to the office on the daily. At the time I led the social media strategy & accounts for some of the agencies top brands in Design & Manufacturing. Flashfoward 2 years after leaving the agency I worked for the Fortune 500 corporation, Elkay Manufacturing. Being the first ever Social Media Specialist in 98 years of business I came into the role with excitement & energy! But, one day, I decided it was time to finally follow my heart & take the risk to start.

Socially Steph LLC came to life in May 2017 and served as a creative outlet & place to document my life in hopes to inspire others to do more things they loved. One year later Socially Steph LLC was born as business and it all started on a Monday in June. My business was born the same day my Grandpa and biggest inspiration died and from this moment on I have chosen to not put my dreams on hold & place energy into everything I do.

What’s your favorite social platform and why?

Tough question. I don’t have a favorite. Instagram is very unique and helpful for learning something new & I find great value in this platform if you follow the right accounts. It’s great for looking up restaurants, hotels, destinations, retail and more.
