Born on the California coast, Stephanie spent much of her life traveling, both in the United States and abroad. Her career brought her to New York in 2001, and several years later she settled down in New Jersey to start a family. When the time came to take her infant daughter across the country, she realized how different traveling had become now that she was a parent. During the next few months and many long-distance trips later, she performed extensive research on the best products on the market today for the traveling family. In early 2009, Stephanie launched Coastal Baby Rentals, a baby and toddler equipment rental company offering the same premium products and services she herself wanted for her family while on the road. In the Spring of 2010, Coastal Baby Rentals expanded to Ocean City, New jersey and the surrounding areas.
