STEPHANIE LEWIS

Hey! I’m Stephanie, and I live in Abilene, TX with my husband and three precious boys. Life with my little family is the sweetest! We love spending time with family and friends (all who are WOMS!), and stay busy with our brand new babe (baby Sam).

I spent the first twelve years of my professional life in education, a federal nonprofit program and higher ed. At 35 I didn’t think life was crazy enough, so I made a move to a corporate gig.

I don’t Pinterest. I don’t exercise. I don’t like dressing my kids up for the 137 special days throughout the school year. My dream is to nap and eat Oreos (double stuffed-duh) in yoga pants on the beach. BUT I’m fiercely loyal and love my people BIG, including you all in WOMland!
