Reviews for Stephanie

Stephanie McKenzie taught us that self-care is about more than just treating myself. It is about making time for myself. Making time to attend to myself, is not to be a special event… my life is the event, and I need to properly nurture the path I want to take. This means saying no when I am overwhelmed and cannot take on another task. It was well worth the experience, and I appreciate her and the wisdom she shared so much.

Stephanie gave our students a fresh, energetic perspective on how to face obstacles and move beyond to a brighter future. She is engaging, honest, and real. We were thrilled with her sharing of her time and talents at the UHD Fall 2021 COMM Studies Speaker Event. She is the best!

From the first 10 mins of talking with Stephanie, I knew she was just the kind of partner we look for at DivInc. She’s business-minded with such a depth of experience, and she wraps all of that together with a human, almost a soul-first approach to coaching. Being aligned versus hustling without the right reasons, bringing our full selves to our roles and companies, and humanizing your brand to invite others into the journey with you are just a few lessons I and our cohort members have enjoyed working on with Stephanie D. McKenzie.
