Art Director and Communications
Stephenie has worked with Intelligent Investment Management since its inception providing branding and creative support for the IIM team. Stephenie has a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree, with an emphasis in Graphic Design from California State University Long Beach. She began her career at Marshall Advertising and Design, an advertising agency in Southern California, working primarily on motorsports, high tech and financial accounts. While residing in Portland, Oregon, Stephenie worked as a freelance designer and eventually started her own marketing and advertising company, Brost Design, working on anything from logos to online ads for the automobile industry.
Portland is where Stephenie met and married James, the love of her life. After several years together in Oregon they decided to move to Durango to be a part of this beautiful mountain community and closer to Stephenie’s family. Together they are raising two children, Kyla and Keagan. Stephenie is the co-leader of Kyla’s Girl Scout Troop and enjoys doing art projects with the kids, snow skiing, snow shoeing, yoga and walking the family dogs, Holland and Roxy.
