Director of Development
Utah Museum of Contemporary Art
As an arts manager, Stephanie’s passion is to facilitate transcendent moments in the arts by building strong donor relationships grounded in community-centric fundraising. She grew up with the arts in her DNA, training in ballet, voice, and piano from an early age. After spending the first part of her career in corporate sales and marketing, Stephanie returned to graduate school, earning a master's in Arts Management from American University. While there, she was awarded the Strathmore Development Fellowship and went on to work as Manager of Membership & Individual Giving at the National Archives Foundation in Washington, DC; and most recently, as the Development Director at Arts for the Aging, in Rockville, Maryland. She has been an AFP member since 2018.
Stephanie is now the Director of Development at Utah Museum of Contemporary Art. In her previous position as Director of Individual Giving at Utah Symphony | Utah Opera, Stephanie is responsible for a portfolio of approximately 1,300 donors making annual, major, and planned gifts. It’s been a dream to work with this amazing community of supporters to advance the mission of USUO. In her spare time, you'll find her dancing, hiking, reading, and soaking up the wonderful Salt Lake City art scene.
