About Stephanie

Despite what my co-workers might tell you, here’s the real story behind my nickname: My mom gave it to me when I was 4 years old and she used it so often I thought it was my real name. She stopped however, when I actually told someone in a grocery store that my name was “Bossy”. After receiving my BA in photography from the University of Delaware in 2003, I came to work at Reed in their customer services department. I did that for four years, and that is where I learned all I needed to know about what kind of company Reed was, which is why I chose to stay while I finished school. Now I manage the products and website for our subsidiary, A Sign of Wisdom. I assist in the production of the plaques, fill in as a printer when needed and help out in our shipping department. I am currently pursuing a Masters in Human Resource Management. Photography and cameras are a passion of mine. I love to collect toy and classic cameras. My collection includes several Holgas, some Brownies and a couple of “build your own” cameras as well as some pinholes. I believe…I need more sleep!
