Stephanie Renee Bermudez grew up near the border city of Nogales, Arizona, raised by a family that emphasized community and the power of people, values she continues to believe strongly in. Her childhood adventures on their 14-acre ranch instilled an endless curiosity about nature, a need to explore, and a belief that the future was wide open. Her early career took off like a shot, when at 19 years old, she got an opportunity to become a case worker for the Santa Cruz County One Stop in specializing in Workforce Development for Welfare to Work clients.
Before graduating from The University of Arizona with a double major in Anthropology and Sociology, she continued her professional journey with The Gadsden Company, followed three years later by a position with Tucson-based global industry-leading Tattoo Manufacturing International. She now serves as a board member of the Tucson Young Professionals, and has been involved for almost three years with TEDxTucson, a commitment she absolutely treasures.
Stephanie is now firmly ensconced in her role as the Community Director for Connect Coworking, and is more bullish than ever on the idea of talented individuals pooling their resources to enable results that are bigger and better than anyone ever imagined, like the skies above her family’s ranch.
